  • Shrimp
  • 1 lb. large prawns, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 Tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 Tablespoons Koroneiki, Portuguese Cobrancosa, or Ultra Premium Picual olive oil


  • Shrimp
  • Add the shrimp, turmeric, lemon juice, and salt in bowl and marinate for about 1/2 hour at room temperature.
  • Warm the oil in large skillet or a wok over medium-high heat.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade and drain. Place in the skillet or wok in small batches so shrimp aren't touching each other. Cook until a charred crust forms on the bottom, then flip and repeat for the other side. Transfer the shrimp to a bowl and set aside. Continue the process until all the shrimp are cooked.
  • Wipe out the skillet.
