Paprika Shrimp


  • 800 g shrimp, deveined
  • 1 1/2 – 2 teaspoon paprika powder
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon piripiri powder
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon wine
  • 1 1/4 -1/2 smashed garlic with salt
  • Black pepper, optional
  • Olive oil


In a small bowl, place all the ingredients with exception of the shrimp to prepare the marinate. Mix it well until it becomes homogeneous.

In a separate plastic tray or bowl, place the shrimp with shell on. Transfer the marinate to the bowl containing the shrimp and spread it well throughout it. The shrimp can be cut all the way down as it in the photo below. Let marinate for at least 20 minutes.


Once it marinated, add the olive oil to a pan and let it heat up. Add the marinated shrimp and fry it whenever the oil gets warm. It should take you less than 5 minutes to cook one shrimp.

The paprika shrimp can be eaten plain as it is, or you can make some sauce. Perhaps a sauce based on sriracha to spice it up a bit more or a mild one, yogurt based, to tone down the effect of the piripiri.

I hope you enjoy this recipe, and make it for your family and friends. Today it is Friday, and the paprika shrimp recipe is a great one for an appetizer. Enjoy it!

Until next time, Hungry People.
