Prawns with Lime with Mint and Cilantro Chutney.......

Carmela is celebrating her Second Anniversary of the blog, and I promise her that I will contribute with a recipe......I hope you like it!

Prawns with Lime with Mint and Cilantro Chutney (adapted from Spice Goddess)

Prawns, peeled and deveined
Olive oil
2 garlics (grated)
1 teaspoon fenugreek leaves
1 teaspoon Spanish paprika
1 teaspoon cumin seeds (crushed)
1/2 teaspoon cardamom seeds
2 tablespoon fresh lime juice

Mint and Cilantro Chutney
Metal or wooden skewers. I have used wooden skewers that have been previously soaked in water
Mint and Cilantro Chutney
2 cups mint leaves (washed)
1  chile pepper (I used the green one)
1/4 cup red onion (chopped)
1  cup cilantro leaves (chopped)
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 cup water

Introduce the shrimps in each skewer (4-5 depending on the size). Set aside.

On a cast iron skillet (medium-high heat), put oil and add the garlic, fenugreek, paprika, cumin seeds, and cardamom seeds. When garlic is golden, add the shrimp skewers and cook the shrimps in both sides on the spices. Take the shrimps out, sprinkle some lime juice and serve with the chutney.


In a food processor or a blender, put the mint leaves, cilantro, garam masala, chile pepper, red onion, and salt. Add water until you have a paste like the consistency of pesto......ENJOY!!
