Spicy, Wild Sesame Seed Shrimp

Still “lagged” but have to do something with myself, and I found a new plate at the supermarket.  Anyway this was easy; shrimp were in the freezer.

Spicy Wild Sesame Seed Shrimp

1 tbsp sunflower oil

1 tbsp sesame seed oil

2 large garlic cloves, coarsely chopped

1/2 tsp five spice powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp pepper

1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 spring onion, halved a thinly sliced

2 tsp toasted wild sesame seeds

1/2 scotch bonnet, seeded and thinly sliced

Mix the oils, garlic, five spice, salt and pepper together, then pour over the shrimp, mix well and refrigerate for about 30 minutes.

Preheat a stove top grill on medium high and then grill the shrimp for about 2-3 minutes per side.  Sprinkle with the onion, sesame seeds and scotch bonnet.  Pass out the chopsticks and enjoy with big beers.

    So fresh and perfect for summer. I have to check out these wild sesame seeds since I have never heard of them!!

  4. I think French needs to be the lingua franca of food. Crevettes clears up the confusion between shrimp and prawns. Whatever they’re called they sound good:)
