  • 1 lb. large shell-on (or peeled) shrimp
  • 1 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
  • 2 Tbsp. freshly grated turmeric (or 1 Tbsp. ground)
  • 1 Tbsp. lime zest
  • 2 tsp. fish sauce
  • 2 tsp. sriracha
  • ¼ tsp. kosher salt
  • ½ tsp. freshly ground black pepper
  • 2½ Tbsp. butter
  • ½ cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 3 Tbsp. thinly sliced green onion
  1. Cook shrimp in a large pot of boiling salted water just until opaque, about 30 seconds. Transfer to a paper towel–lined baking sheet and let drain.
  2. Combine oil, garlic, lime juice, turmeric, lime zest, fish sauce, sriracha, salt and pepper in a bowl; stir with a whisk. Set aside.
  3. Heat butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add turmeric-lime sauce; cook 2 minutes, until aromatic. Add shrimp and cook, tossing gently and adjusting heat as needed to keep sauce just below a simmer, until cooked through, about 5 minutes. Top with cilantro and green onion.
