Hi Friends,

Many at times, we try to do experiments in the kitchen. Couple of months back when Alekhya has asked me to prepare a dish made of Shrimp (at times we call it as prawn), I was all high to do something different. Not just that I want to pour my love into the dish to make it more tasty, but also I wanted the dish to resemble LOVE. An idea sparked in my mind and that is ‘Shrimp-O-Love’. Here is the recipe and steps for the preparation.

  1. Take one pound of shrimp, cleaned it with hot water and take the moisture out by using paper tissues.
  2. Marinate the shrimp for 20 mins by adding turmeric, chilli, salt, pepper, one spoon of olive oil, oregano seasoning, garlic powder and little bit of gharam masala.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350 degree temperature, place the shrimp / prawns in row by row at equidistant on a metal wrapper and have it broiled for 15 mins.
  4. Take the dish out from the oven and couple the shrimp one to one to form perfect heart shapes. Garnish the dish with green chilli sauce, onion and cilantro. You should be good to taste this yummy food.

Below are few of the pics I’ve taken at each step. Try it yourself in the kitchen.
