Ingredients Edit

  1. 24 med cooked Shrimp shelled
  2. 2 tsp red pepper paste
  3. 1/2 cup dry red wine
  4. 2 tsp ground red pepper (Cayenne)
  5. 1/2 tsp salt
  6. 1/2 tsp ground ginger
  7. 1/4 tsp ground cardamom
  8. 1/4 tsp ground coriander
  9. 1/4 tsp ground cloves
  10. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  11. 1/4 tsp pepper
  12. 1/4 tsp Onion powder
  13. 2 tsp garlic powder
  14. 1/2 cup paprika

Directions Edit

If using frozen, thaw, wash, and dry the Shrimp. Remove shells. Place the measure of Ghana Sauce in a glass bowl; add Shrimp and toss to coat well. Let stand at room temperature for 15 minutes. Heat the WOK; spray with a little oil; add the Shrimp and cook till hot; no more than 5 minutes. Serve at once with a black bean salad, like Texas Caviar (or Crowder Bean salsa). Steamed rice is nice.

Place all ingredients except the paprika in a small glass bowl. Stir well. Heat paprika in a 1-quart saucepan over medium heat 1 minute, stirring constantly. Gradually stir in the spice mixture until the paste is smooth. Heat about 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until hot. Cool for a dipping sauce. Cool for a marinade. Freeze for future use.

Alternative: Heat paprika, cumin and ground coriander in a dry pan over low to medium-low heat to "toast" and renew the dried spices. Remove from the heat and transfer to a 1-cup pyrex measure for further blending. Add the other spices to the pan. Stirring constantly, add the wine and make a paste.
