Mashed Shrimp with Green Beans ( Vorta Boishak special)


  • 1/2 lb large shrimp, peeled, deveined and tails off
  • salt, pepper and olive oil
  • 3/4 lb string beans, stems off
  • zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 1/4 chopped yellow onion
  • 1 tbsp mustard oil 
  • 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste)
  • 2 green chilis, roughly chopped 


  1. This is unconventional, but it’s the only way I cook shrimp: toss shrimp with 1/4 tsp salt, 1/8 tsp pepper and 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil. Spread onto a baking sheet and roast in a 400 degree F oven for 7 minutes.
  2. Next boil some water in a large pot. Once it comes to a full boil, add 1 tsp salt and add the green beans. It should take 5 minutes to cook through. Drain, chop roughly and add to food processor.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients to the food processor and blend to combine. Serve with rice.
