Simply the best

Things don’t have to be overly complicated to be fantastic. Sometimes the best things are the simplest. When it comes to food and cooking I find the best foods to be the simplest, however this is harder achieved than said. The only way to guarantee good results is making sure to use premium and outstanding ingredients.

From the ingredients, to the method and the whole experience, this right here is food that is simple and gorgeous. Get your friends to sit with you in the kitchen, make these shrimps, pour your drinks, chat as you prepare the food, ask one of them to break the baguette and dig in straight from the skillet. The simplest and most fun thing to do!


Serves: 4-6 Cook Time: 6-8 minutes
  • 16 tiger Shrimps
  • 2 tbsp parsley, finely chopped
  • 3 tbsp butter, softened
  • 1-2 tsp DS Red or Green Shatta (optional for spicy)
  • 4 cloves garlic, crushed
  • Salt & black pepper to taste
  • 3 tbsp DS Premium Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • Juice of ½ a lemon

Trim the antennas of the shrimp, and slice through the back, keeping the shell intact. Devein the shrimps, rinse and pat dry.

In a small bowl mix together the softened butter, chopped parsley, crushed garlic, salt and black pepper, until well incorporated. If you wish to serve a slightly spicy version of this dish, add 1-2 tsp of my red or green Shatta (DS red or green chili sauce) to the butter mixture. Stuff the opening in the shrimp’s back with this butter mixture.

Heat the olive oil in a large skillet and shallow fry the shrimps until cooked through, about 6-8 minutes. Don’t overcook them, there is nothing worse than overcooked shrimps!

The shells turn orange and firm when the shrimps are done. Squeeze half a lemon over the whole and serve immediately in the frying skillet alongside some pita bread or baguette.

Enjoy and have a couple of very good laughs with your friends, nothing beats that!
