pepper shrimp

I know I originally intented this blog to focus more on my artistic endeavours, but I think cooking also constitutes as 'making things,' don't you think?
I made this dish today ~ pepper shrimp, following my mum's recipe. It's simple, spicy, and very delicious.

Pepper Shrimp
Shrimp - deveined and cleaned
Pinch of salt
Finely chopped hot chili pepper
Clove of garlic - crushed
Finely ground herbs - I used parsley, culantro and chives

Mix all the ingredients together and let marinate for 1/2 to 1 hour
Heat oil (I use sunflower) on high heat and saute the shrimp for 10 minutes, stirring regularly until all the moisture has evaporated
Serve warm or at room temperature

It's the ultimate finger food, and one that really gets your tastebuds going
