If you don’t have a mortar or an electric grinder, you can use a coffee grinder or even a pepper mill. You can multiply the amount so that next time you don’t have to make the mix again. If you put it in a closed jar you can store it up to three months. If you like sweet flavours add a bit more cinnamon and if you like your food spicy add the chili flakes.
Pre-heat a baking pan on high fire for a minute or so. Then put on high/medium heat and add the butter. When it is melted and starts to bubble add the shrimps bake them in the butter around 2-3 minutes on each side depending on the size.
Add the spice mix and stir for 1-2 minutes or until you really start to smell them.
Be cautious not to bake them too long, then they get chewy. Too short, then they will still be raw. When you are afraid that they are still raw, just try a piece.
Nice to serve with a rice dish, for example a nut pilaf, and crispy fresh salad or as a starter with some softbread.
