Here is a slightly new recipe that we tried last week.

Recipe
:arrow: Large size shirmps
:arrow: sliced potatoes
:arrow: ground red chilies (not poweder), garlic paste, salt, lemon juice
:arrow: Marinate shrimps and potatoes for 30 minute in these spices.
:arrow: First, put the potatoes in the oven and bake them for 10 minutes at 400 degrees. Then, add the shrimps because potatoes take more time in baking. After 15 minutes, take them out and enjoy the baked shrimp & potatoes.

These were perhaps the best shrimps I have eaten in many years. Very light, very tasty, no oil at all. Boys are getting really good with their cooking. Good thing is that they keep trying different things. :)

@ Haider 95.
Please give me some cultural education.
I thought Shrimp would be considered Haram , since they are from the water, but not a fish, same as a Lobster ?

@LAGS, Most of the people do eat shrimps because they do not have a harder shell. The most commonly followed rule in seafood is eating of anything that has flesh or scales.

Lobster has a very hard shell and they have a life out of water, shrimps dont. Even if they are considered as crustations yet their basic structure lies right at the border line where some orthodox people prefer not to eat them just from the fear of whether it is permitted or not permitted.

ahem ahem... ;-) I dont eat shrimps but just take a tasting dip with half a kilogram whenever i can. hehehe

@ Atiqmassan
Thank you,
I am trying to be culturally correct so I know what to feed you all if you come to visit.
It is those Grey areas that always throw me for a loop.
I love shrimp, and a friend use to vacation in Rocky Point Mexico, and would bring me ten pounds of the Very Large tiger shrimp each year.
I prefer them barbequed with just butter and garlic.
If I ever see my friend again, I will get some shrimp from him and try Haiders recipe.

Tiger shrimps are very hard to get here.. as the demand is very very high for export.
We eat a lot of spices.. and anyone who has bordered mexico is really love eating out spiced though lightly but aromatic cooking of Pakistan.

I hope you will want him to go back.. keep this fear that he may not want to go back after he tastes your Haider shrimp recipe.

Shrimps and prawns are halal as per my knowledge and we eat all sea food.

These shrimps and fish were not that spicy, just a little :ugeek:

Let me acknowledge that this shrimp fish vegetable cocktail was the best thing I ate in many days. They were so tender, no oil and with right spices. Well done Haider :text-bravo:

I dont know why we Bourgeoise (Shehri) city dwellers have opted for the FAST food that though we may have adapted the taste to.. it may be good but it will kill us FAST too.

Cooking like this simple yet scrumptuous and at the same time gives US time for OURSELVES. We work 24/7 barely let our minds rest even in sleep.

I am sure one day Sualeh, Haider and Zain will remember these days and how it shaped their lives, How much fun they are having. This life at least for me is a dream life... Good food, Hunting and Fishing and someone like KBW who teaches everything, worth couple of lifetimes worth of information.

Les'th come bestow'eth time, endow love grant life.

Other day during a Chinese buffet, we had the option to eat lobsters, crabs and shrimps. I ate lobsters and shrimps but not crabs though I did see lot of guys devouring crab legs continuously. :mrgreen:

What is the difference, between a lobster and a crab. They are pretty much the same to my knowledge, except that lobsters are long and crabs are ovalish, lobsters are more meaty and have a softer shell. The would be from the same family i guess.

Anyways this is a reciepe section, so anyone who wants to try this out, do so.

Take a few crabs, cut the legs and put on a boil. Boil them till you have one and half cup worth of broth left in the pan. In another pan, heat some oil, and put in a bit of finely chopped garlic, how much would depend on how strong you want the garlic taste. When they are just about melting, add some maida (flour) use a strainer and drop it from a distance so that the maida can become fluffy. brown the flour, then add broth and bring to a boil where the flour and brother make a fine paste. Next add some creamy, again that would depend now thick you want it. When the cream start to bubble on the sides, that where you put in the crab body and the claws, cook for a good 7-10 mins on low flame. It would be better if you crack the claws and the body before putting them in, the meaty would soak up the taste of the sauce around it. If you like it a little rich, mix butter with the oil when u heat the pan.
