This is a rather stylish name for a simple sauteed shrimp dish but allow me to be like that today as we move close to Halloween. Samhain (pronounced as sow-an or sow-in, says Wikipedia), means “summer’s end” in Old Irish. It is where Hallow’s Eve traces its roots.
A long weekend lies ahead of us and should you want to veer away from pork and meat dishes, here’s one recipe that would probably be worth cooking.
This dish is good for 4-6 persons although that would depend on their appetites, of course.
Let’s call in the ingredients:
Half a kilo of shrimp
One large white onion
One clove of garlic
10 cayenne peppers (paitan)
Two large bell peppers
Chopped spring onions
Salt and pepper
Clean the shrimps by removing their antennas (don’t want that messing my food) and washing them in running water.
Saute the white onion and garlic first then add the shrimps. As soon as the shrimps turn red, continue to saute for another five minutes then add two tablespoons of Worcestershire sauce and season with salt and pepper.
Add the chopped bell peppers and spring onions. Serve.
