1/4 teaspoon ground mustard

2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

4 teaspoons canola oil

1/2 teaspoon black mustard seeds

6 fresh or 10 frozen curry leaves, torn into pieces

1. Rinse the shrimp and pat them dry on paper towels. Put them in a bowl and sprinkle with the cayenne, turmeric, ground mustard and lemon juice. Stir gently to coat the shrimp evenly with the spices. Cover and refrigerate for 30 minutes.

Oprah found a new favorite food when she tried this turkey burger at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump’s private club in Palm Beach. “I believe [it] may be the best turkey burger in the entire world,” she says. The Mar-a-Lago Turkey Burger will be permanently available at the Trump Bar and Grille in Trump Tower in New York City, open to the public for lunch and dinner. It will also be served during lunch in Chicago at Sixteen, the Trump International Hotel restaurant. Recipe by Jeff O’ Neill Source: Oprah.com
