Serves 4 (serving size: 4 oz. prepared shrimp)

Ready in just 20 minutes, this recipe is quick, easy, and crazy-flavorful. Turmeric adds a one-two punch of health benefits and flavor depth to the sauce. Fresh lime boosts the tartness of turmeric while a flurry of fresh herbs balances the warm spice and gives the sauce a refreshing punch. Serve it with crusty bread and a side salad for an easy entertaining or weeknight meal.

How to Make It

  1. Cook shrimp in a large pot of boiling salted water just until opaque, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a paper towel–lined baking sheet and let drain.
  2. Combine oil, garlic, lime zest and juice, turmeric, fish sauce, sriracha, and pepper in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.
  3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turmeric-lime sauce; cook 2 minutes, until aromatic.
  4. Add shrimp and cook, tossing gently and adjusting heat as needed to keep sauce just below a simmer, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Top with cilantro and green onion.
