  • Rinse the shrimp and then pat them dry. In a bowl, sprinkle the cayenne/paprika, turmeric and cumin over them and toss.
  • Then sprinkle them with the lemon/lime juice and toss again, to evenly distribute the juice and spices. Cover and chill for 30 minutes.
  • Heat a large nonstick skillet over high heat with the vegetable oil in it. When it is hot, add the mustard seeds and curry leaves.
  • After the mustard seeds finish popping, add the shrimp and fry them, stirring, for 30-60 seconds, until they are pink, opaque and curled. Do not overcook .
  • Add the finely chopped scallion, toss, and serve with lemon or lime wedges.
