An extremely easy and flavorful Shrimp Ghee Roast recipe using ghee, shrimp, onion, tomato paste, vinegar, and Indian spices. Perfect for busy weeknights dinner or anyday meal/brunch menu. Serve with rice/pasta/quinoa or even a side of fresh salad.
This Shrimp Ghee Roast recipe is an extremely popular Indian recipe that has slightly different steps/ingredients as you travel from south-north India, however, the one thing which is constant is ‘It’s Fingerlicking Good’!Also, what differentiates this recipe from any other shrimp recipes you might have eaten or heard of, is “Ghee”.
It’s the ONE Constant Ingredient that never changes, although you can use any kind of shrimp/slight changes in all other ingredients but Ghee is a Must.
Did you know that You Can easily use Ghee wherever you use Butter and experience the amazing flavors and taste.
So when Ghee is a Must, I always choose the best kind and I’m using 4th & Heart Ghee – Original Ghee for my recipe, which I found in my local Walmart, refrigerated section.
All 4th & Heart products are of the highest quality with superior taste and powerful certifications (non-GMO, Paleo, Gluten-Free, Keto).
I also love its smooth texture and light ghee fragrance.
If you have never cooked with ghee, then you are in for a treat, that not only pleases your palette but soul too.
So what is Ghee and Where All Can You Use it?
Ghee is a type of clarified butter that is heated and reduced to this golden magical-fragrant liquid. Which is pure healthy fat – lactose-free, dairy-free and good for digestion and metabolism?
I use this ghee in any recipe that calls for whole butter or even on toasts at times. It’s infact Perfect to add to your butter coffee or even fat bombs (keto diet).
Add it in curry’s/ lentils or even sautéed veggies for that extra flavor and aroma.
You can also make pasta/bone-broth or any kind of soups using ghee as a base or any dish that requires you to cook on high heat as Ghee has a higher cooking point.
I even slather some on hot rotis or steamed rice. Infact ghee+steamed rice is what many of us grew up eating along with dal/curry.
So, you generally get the idea now that it’s pretty delicious, multi-functional and adds lot of flavors to any dish. Now, let’s get back to our recipe.

Shrimp: you can use either of raw or pre-cooked shrimp for this recipe.
Ghee: I’m using
Onions, finely chopped
Chili Paste, use any or can ignore this ingredient
Indian Spices: turmeric, red chili powder, cilantro powder and garam masala
Pinch of Sweetener: can use sugar/honey or any sweetener of choice.
We use ‘Sweetener + Vinegar’ in this recipe to enhance the flavors even further.
How to Make the Shrimp Ghee Roast Recipe
As I mentioned above, this is one of my goto weekday recipes, hence the process to make this dish is super quick and easy.
You don’t need any fancy utensils or special technique to make this and the dish is ready in 15 minutes.
We start by heating a dollop or two (about 2tbsp) of Ghee (as shown below).
Then we saute together the finely chopped onions, ginger+garlic paste and Indian spices.
Then we add the tomato paste, chili paste (if using), vinegar and cook this for a minute.
Then we add the shrimp and saute-roast everything together for a few more minutes.
After 5 minutes, turn off the heat.
Transfer to a serving dish and sprinkle fresh cilantro on top.
Server hot along with sliced lime/lemon wedges.
Serving & Storing Shrimp Ghee Roast:
I love eating this recipe with a bowl of steamed rice or quinoa (as below). For my Keto friends, these pairs amazingly with sautéed cauliflower rice or zoodles too.
I’ve also served this with dinner rolls/ focaccia bread/ pasta or just a plain salad
You can store this recipe in the fridge upto 3 days. Just reheat in the microwave and serve.
If re-heating, adding fresh cilantro on top gives it a fresher look.
As mentioned above, I found the Ghee in the refrigerated section at my local Walmart. It was kept with the butter collection.
