Number of Servings: 4


    3 Scallions, thinly sliced crosswise
    2 cloves Garlic, finely chopped
    2 tsp. ground Coriander
    1 tsp. ground Cumin
    1/2 tsp. Cayenne pepper
    1/2 tsp. Turmeric
    1.5 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined (leave tails on)
    3 tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    Salt to taste
    2 tsp. Lemon juice


1. In large bowl, mix together half the scallions, garlic, coriander, cumin, cayenne, and turmeric. Add the shrimp and stir to coat. Cover with plastic wrap and refridgerate for 30 minutes.

2. In large skillet, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until nearly opaque, about 2 minutes. Add the lemon juice and continue frying until shrimp are cooked through, about 1 minute more. Top with remaining scallion.

Instead of frying with EVOO, you can also brush the shrimp with EVOO and grill instead--using your grill, grill pan, or George Foreman grill. This will reduce calories further. Serve with long grain rice or a fresh salad.
