Staying with the Tandoori theme, left over plain yogurt in the fridge, used Pierre Franey’s time-tested cooking method. 6 minutes under the broiler, no turning. Perfect every time. So, clean and de-vein largest fresh shrimp you can get.
16 shrimp serves 2. Put in medium-sized bowl with 2 tablespoons plain yogurt, 1/4 tsp. each of cayenne, cardamom, coriander, ginger, turmeric, cumin. 1 tsp. paprika. Garlic powder to taste. Juice of 1/2 lemon or lime. Stir and coat shrimp. You can refrigerate until ready to cook, or just broil right away.
Place shrimp on a cookie sheet so not touching, using all of the coating mixture. Turn broiler to high and when hot, place cookie sheet on highest rack. Broil for 6 minutes. That’s it. No turning. Serve with Kazmati rice and chutneys.
