Shrimp in Parsley Sauce

Here's a great recipe that you can whip up on any weeknight. It literally takes about 20 minutes. And the result is delicious. I call it Shrimp in Parsley Sauce (I couldn't think of a more creative name, okay!). 

Yield: Enough for 4 normal eaters ;)


1. Parsley 1 bunch

2. Onion- 1/2, roughly chopped

3. Ginger Garlic Paste- 1-1.5 tsp

4. Tomato paste- 1 tbs 

5. Green chilies- Min 2-3, Max- according to your taste buds ;) 

6. Cooking oil- 5-7 tsp

7. Mustard seeds- 1 tsp

8. Salt to taste

9. Water- to adjust consistency 1/2-1 cup

10. Raw Shrimp- 5-6 per head


1. Take ingredients 1-5, toss in blender, pour 1/2 a cup of water, and blend it all into a fine sauce. 

2. If you like to sauté shrimp separately before adding to sauce, go ahead and do that. Takes about a couple minutes. If you don't mind simply adding raw shrimp in the end to the sauce and allowing them to cook in the heat, then proceed to step 3. 

3. In your cooking utensil, add 5-7 tsp of cooking oil, heat, splutter mustard seeds, and throw in the parsley sauce into this. Stir for about 5-10 minutes on medium flame to get rid of the raw onion, ginger, and garlic smell. This also allows the sauce to thicken up a bit. You may add half a cup of water according to your desired consistency. Add salt to taste.

4. Add the shrimp to this sauce and simmer for 5-7 minutes. Done! 

Squeeze some lemon juice to zing it up and serve with basmati rice.

I made brown basmati plus wild rice- it was delicious.

This parsley sauce can also be used for veggies such as potatoes, carrots, peas, or anything really. Even chicken, lamb, eggs, etc.
