  • If using frozen shrimp, thaw them under running water for 5 to 7 minutes, or until no longer icy. Peel and devein the shrimp if not already done.
  • In a large bowl, combine the Diamond kosher salt, coconut milk, Tandoori spice mix, and lemon juice. Whisk until well-distributed. (Using my bottled Tandoori marinade? Shake it up and measure out ½ cup of it for the marinade!)
  • Add the shrimp and toss to coat well. You can marinate the shrimp for up to 30 minutes if desired. 
  • Heat the oven to 400°F with the rack in the middle position. Arrange the shrimp in a single layer on a parchment-lined rimmed baking sheet.
  • Roast in the oven for 6 to 8 minutes, flipping the shrimp over at the halfway point. (If your shrimp are smaller than jumbo, they may take just 5 minutes to cook!)
  • Sprinkle with minced fresh cilantro and serve with lime wedges. (Yes, lemons are just as good!)



  • If you’re using my bottled Tandoori marinade, just measure out ½ cup of it for step 2!
  • The shrimp are finished cooking when they turn opaque and pink on the outside. They’re easy to overcook, so don’t dawdle. No one likes rubbery shrimp!
