Spicy Garlic Turmeric Shrimp

January 20, 2019

I love cooking shrimp, 1) because they cook SO quickly, 2) they absorb the flavour of anything you cook them in. 


This past week I made this super delicious spicy shrimp (recipe inspired by my husband, who has seriously mastered cooking shrimp).

We have been making shrimp in a similar way for a while now, but decided to add some turmeric and real chili peppers and it turned out amazing! Give it a try and let me know what you think. 





  • 2 tbsp. olive or coconut oil

  • 2-3 tbsp. hot sauce of choice (I used sriracha sauce)

  • 1 tbsp. honey

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 red chili pepper, minced or sliced thinly

  • Salt and black pepper to taste

  • 2-3 fresh basil leaves, torn (optional) 

  • 1 tsp. turmeric

  • 1/4 tsp. cumin 

  • 1/2 tsp. chili powder 

  • 400g shrimp (one fresh or frozen bag)




Heat skillet on medium high and add olive or coconut oil.

In a small bowl, combine, hot sauce, minced garlic and chili, chili powder, cumin, turmeric, salt/black pepper, and honey.

Add shrimp and begin to sauté for about 1-2 minutes.

Add sauce mixture and continue to sauté for 4-5 minutes or until shrimp are cooked (orange colour and no longer transparent).

Top with fresh basil and enjoy!


I like to serve mine over jasmine or basmati rice and a side of veggies (my go to usually being broccol or other stir fried veggies with this dish).


Have a wonderful Sunday and maybe make something spicy to stay warm!


Cheers to happy and healthy eating.


Until next time,
