Falafel-Coated Shrimp with Yogurt Dipping Sauce

To help the coating adhere to the shrimp, you will need to coat half the shrimp and then cook them before starting on the remaining shrimp.

Cook's Notes

Made from ground chickpeas, dry falafel mix is usually turned into patties and fried. We use it here to give shrimp a Middle Eastern flavor and a crisp coating. Look for the mix in the pasta or grains section of grocery stores.

    This is a delicious and easy to make recipe. I have made it many times over the years and it is a big hit with my family. Sometimes I coat scallops as well, but they do require additional cooking time. They key to this recipe it to buy a decent felafel mix. I prefer Osem.
