CF139 - Shrimp Masala: A Delicious Experiment in Cajun-Indian Fusion

August 28, 2012

OK. I’m gonna say it… This dish is INSANE. So insane that I made it two weeks in a row. I just couldn’t help myself. Masala is a combination of dry and roasted spices, typical in Indian and Pakistani cuisines, and they are used to add spice and flavor. I call this a Cajun-Indian fusion because I used fresh Gulf shrimp and lots of cayenne (and crushed red pepper flakes!). And, of course, this Shrimp Masala was served over a bed of Louisiana Jasmine rice. This recipe is a keeper. If you try it, you just gotta let me know!
