I have been meaning to upload this recipe for a while now. Life can get a bit hectic with three kids all under the age of 7 years old. So a few weeks back I had promised my friends to visit Souq Naif. It is literally a maze of shops selling everything from gold, spices, textiles, car parts, clothing, home appliance and everything in-between. We were specifically planning on visiting the art and crafts section of the souq; you can find everything from ribbons, beads and crystals to scissors, glue guns and zippers at amazing prices. If you are a DIY person this place is your heaven.
Whenever I venture down to the old part of Dubai I make a point to visit the Deira Fish and Vegetable Market. It is a foodie’s heaven! Here you can find the freshest selection of different types of fish. It can be a bit overwhelming having all the different fish vendors showing off their produce with the hopes of you choosing their stall. I love haggling with these guys it makes the experience more fun and I walk away feeling like I got a good deal. After visiting a few of these stalls I ended up buying 1 kilo of jumbo shrimp which I used for to make a delicious spaghetti dish with garlic shrimp and coriander. This is a great dish that the adults and kids will enjoy.
Hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we did!
