Updated Jun 25, 2015

Ingredients

  • 1 pound uncooked large shrimp, (about 16), peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, ground
  • 1/4 cup half-and-half
  • 1 teaspoon cumin seed, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon whole cloves, ground
  • 1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns, ground
  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom seeds, (removed from pods), ground
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

Steps

  • 1
    Mix all ingredients except 1 tablespoon of the cilantro, the oil and tomato sauce in medium bowl. Cover and refrigerate 30 minutes to blend flavors.
  • 2
    Heat oil in 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp mixture. Cook each side of shrimp 30 to 60 seconds or until partially pink.
  • 3
    Stir in tomato sauce. Cover and cook 3 to 4 minutes, turning shrimp occasionally, until shrimp are pink and firm. Serve garnished with remaining 1 tablespoon cilantro.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Shrimp, considered humble fisherman’s food in India, is widely consumed because of its abundance along India’s three coastlines.
  • tip 2
    Take extra care not to overcook shrimp. When shrimp changes from a raw blue-green color to pink and firm, it is at its juiciest best.
