  • Wash the shrimp thoroughly with water. Transfer it to a colander to drain all the water out.
  • You can use bell peppers and onions and cut into cubes. This is totally your choice. I havenā€™t used any today šŸ™‚
  • Mix all the ingredients of the marinade in a bowl and make a smooth paste.
  • Apply the marinade on the shrimp and (veggies if any)
  • Arrange the shrimp on a skewer (along with bell peppers and onions). Remember to soak the bamboo skewers in water for 20 minutes to prevent the skewer from getting Burnt.
  • Preheat the grill at 450-degree Fahrenheit.
  • Brush oil on the shrimp and on the grilling plate to prevent the shrimp from sticking to it. You can also use a pan instead of a grill.
  • Grill the shrimp for 5 minutes on each side. Make sure the grill is really hot. This also prevents the shrimp from sticking to the grill.
  • Serve hot with mint chutney. Serve it as a starter at lunch or dinner or make shrimp/prawn tikka at a barbecue party.
