Masala shrimp is one of the easiest preparation of this fish I have tried recently. Also, I have never cooked this fish from the scratch, I mean starting from cleaning,  deveining and then preparing this for our dinner…impressive atleast for me. I always get the cleaned shrimp from the store but this time thought of cleaning by myself. And to my surprise it was not that hard of work to do… 🙂

Without further delay here’s goes the recipe for deliciously yummy masala shrimp.
