The secret to this recipe’s delicious depth is the classic Indian spice blend known as garam masala—traditionally a mix of warming and earthy spices like cinnamon, cardamom and peppercorns. Along with peppery nigella seeds, we’re using the complex blend to coat shrimp, which we’re then cooking in a coconut milk sauce. To accompany these lively flavors, we’re infusing rice with sautéed garlic, and then mixing it with cooked spinach, for a gorgeous and flavorful way to soak up the sweet and savory sauce. We’re sprinkling toasted coconut flakes on top for irresistible crunch.

Garam Masala Shrimp with Garlic-Spinach Rice & Toasted Coconut Flakes ingredients
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and mince the garlic and ginger. Peel and small dice the onion. Pick the cilantro leaves off the stems; discard the stems. Quarter the lime.
