This recipe was inspired by a single and pointless hanging at the nearest supermarket. I was craving for something exotic and looking at the stands of seafood and vegetables. The beauty of Dubai is that you can have everything from all over the world in one place. Not an easy task to add all recipes to my list as some of the vegetables and spices are completely new for me. However I can assure you that with the next recipe you will be nicely surprised.

Preheat the oil in a frying pan and saute the chopped garlic and ginger. Add the shrimps, the chili peppers, and the lemon grass.
