Baked Garlic Shrimp, Malaysian Style


1 lb (or 1/2 kg) shrimp

1 tablespoon lime juice

4 cloves garlic, finely diced

1 to 4 small red chilis, finely diced (optional)

2 shallots, finely diced

Olive oil

Salt and black pepper

baked garlic shrimp


1. Clean the shrimp if you live in Malaysia. Slice the head off where the head shell meets the body. Starting with the legs, peel the shell off. You can leave the tail on. While holding the shrimp with back up, insert a knife into the body and slice upward. Then pull out the vein.

2. Rinse the shrimp. Place in a pile on a cookie sheet. Add all ingredients. Sprinkle olive oil and mix shrimp and seasonings well.

3. Spread shrimp on cookie sheet but place shrimp next to each other. Make sure to cover with seasonings. Sprinkle salt and pepper. Bake in oven at 200 degrees Celsius between 6 and 10 minutes.

Tip: Do not cook shrimp beyond 10 minutes because the meat dries out fast and turns into rubber.

Tip: The tiny red chilis can be extremely hot. If you do not like spicy peppers, then omit chilis.
