Table Talk » Shrimp Tikka Masala - Cook with What You Have Challenge Day 12
My goal tonight was to use a partial bag of frozen shrimp. As I was thinking about the frozen shrimp, I remembered this recipe for Shrimp Tikka Masala that I had bookmarked earlier this month. Perfect. It would also allow me to use some yogurt I had in the fridge. And the ever-present onions, garlic, and ginger. My pantry, fridge, and freezer also provided everything I needed for jasmine rice and for an Indian-Spiced Spinach Madeleine.
I made one substitution in the Shrimp Tikka Masala recipe. I used ketchup instead of tomato paste because there is no tomato paste in my pantry.
Spinach Madeleine is my go-to recipe for creamed spinach, but I change it up to complement whatever cuisine I am cooking. For this Indian version, I used about 4 ounces of light cream cheese instead of the jalapeno cheese. I also start this recipe by sauteing a chopped onion or a few shallots. Tonight I used onion. You don't need 1/4 cup of butter for this recipe. I use 2 tablespoons of oil or butter. I seasoned the spinach with garam masala and a pinch of crushed red pepper instead of Worcestershire sauce and celery seed.
Another great meal from the pantry. I'll definitely make the Shrimp Tikka Masala again.
