Street Food: Alaskan Killer Shrimp

If these get you salivating, blame Sia who is hosting Street food Festivities!


After psychedelic uttapams from Murugan Idli in Chennai, I’ll zip you around the globe to Alaska for some spicy Killer Shrimp.

Last year this week in Alaska, we marveled in awe at Glaciers, and ooohed and aaahed at antics of humpback whales and those colorful, darling puffins. En route in Anchorage, we snacked on these Killer Shrimp freshly prepared at an open air stall – the closest you’ll get to street food in the US.

A mother and daughter team fried giant shrimp in butter and a medley of spices.


So much butter, the shrimp would be aflame! Then, I had just run my Boston Marathon and was not counting calories.

Once the butter was all melted, they’d pour it in a soup cup and serve with french baguettes. Soak the bread in the spicy brew and then munch on the shrimp. Oooooh! That was lunch!

Their stall! With a stick of butter, the sauce was certainly ‘luxurious!’
