Tandoori Shrimp with Mint Chutney

I only recently learned about Vaisakhi, the harvest festival celebrated in the Punjab region of Indian, occurring on April 13th. It marks the start of the new year and new beginnings. In Canada, the Sikh community holds its annual Vaisakhi celebrations in April with a parade in Surrey, BC. Large numbers attend and according to Wikipedia, 200,000 people were at the parade in 2014.

What better way to celebrate a new fresh beginning than using fresh ingredients in a delicious Indian recipe. Through my partnership with Patak’s Canada, I was challenged this month to create a festive dish using fresh Indian herbs. I selected mint as my herb and settled on making Tandoori Shrimp with Mint Chutney. I think that’s an appropriate recipe for a fresh start and a yummy way to “mix in a little India” at a our family’s dinner table.

I selected Patak’s Tandoori Sauce for Two along with shrimp, onions and garlic. I made a mint chutney with fresh mint (obviously), cilantro, lime juice, garlic, green chilies and olive oil. The meal came together in about 20 minutes and that includes me cooking the rice to serve it with.

Normally, you think of chicken served with Tandoori, but I thought it would be fun to try a different protein. We are big seafood fans, especially shrimp. I choose well because the dish turned out fabulous.

    Tandoori sauce is fairly mild with its blend of tamarind, coriander and cumin. It won’t overwhelm your tastebuds with heat as some other types of Indian sauces can.

    Next time I make this recipe, I’m going to double it. We ate it one evening when the kids were over at Grandma and Poppa’s house. I think my girls would like it. I’m not sure if they’d eat the mint chutney so I’d keep that on the side just in case.
