I love cooking, but sometimes I don’t have the time or energy to make a big meal. I have a list of recipes that take no time to make yet are incredibly delicious – this is one of them!

Shrimp Vindaloo

1 Pound Shrimp (peeled and deveined)

1 Container Maya Kaimal Vindaloo

Boom! You are looking at a fantastic tasty Shrimp Dish with just those two ingredients, but if you are feeling fancy (or so inclined) you can also throw in some other things too. I like to add a little green curry paste to turn the heat up , but you can also add bell peppers, Serrano or jalapeƱo peppers, scallions, little coconut milk or really whatever tickles your fancy. You can pick up a Maya Kaimal sauce at any Whole Foods Market.

Take a medium or large skillet and add the container of Vindaloo sauce and slowly warm the sauce. *This is where I will sometimes add a little green curry paste to take the heat of the dish up another notch* When your sauce is warm and you have gotten the taste right turn up the heat to medium high and get ready to add the shrimp. Add the shrimp to the skillet with the sauce and cook shrimp for a minute per side (two minute total). Once the shrimp have cooked, turn the heat off and stir the shrimp around the sauce and get your plate ready.

You can serve this with a salad on the side, spinach, or along with some brown rice (helps cut the heat a little). Whatever you want but the shrimp is a knock out on its on and I love to have a little Hot Mango Chutney on the side!
