Shrimps are one of my favorite. This pan fried shrimp recipe is one of the easy recipes to prepare when your craving to have something fried with spice. Not shelling the shrimp gives it a glorious spice filled flavor of garlic. I used fresh garlic as I was out of stock of garlic paste. If you have garlic paste, using it would allow the shrimps to absorb the juices faster from the marinade paste.
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 15 -20 minutes
Whole shrimps – 250 g, Washed with legs and veins removed

1. Marinate the Shrimps with the ingredients mentioned under marinade overnight or for 1 hour.
2. Heat oil in a pan on medium-high heat and drop a piece of garlic. Fry for a couple of seconds and then thrown in the shrimps.
3. Cover and fry for 2 minutes. Flip the sides and cook for another 2 minutes. You will see the water steaming out slowly and shrimps curling. Let the water dry out. Fry for another 2-3 minutes.
