What goes good with Fried Shrimp besides fries?

There are two really popular side dishes you could try:

  • Onion rings
  • Spicy Cauliflower

The onion rings are easy since you just need to deepfry sliced onions in a beer-battered bread mix for the right taste.

spicy cauliflowerFor the spicy cauliflower recipe, you’ll need the following:

  • 3 tablespoons grapeseed oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon whole cumin seeds
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons whole mustard seeds
  • 1 large onion, thinly sliced (about 3 cups)
  • 1/4 cup finely shredded peeled ginger
  • 5 cloves garlic, very thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 1 medium head cauliflower (about 2 pounds), cut into large florets
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1 cup cooked chickpeas
  • 1-2 small red chiles, thinly sliced, seeds removed for less heat


  1. Heat the oil over high heat in a large skillet.
  2. Add spices and cook until golden (~1 min)
  3. Stir in the onion, half the ginger and garlic, and half the salt
  4. Cook until onions are tender and golden at the edges (~7 minutes). Turn off heat and set aside when done. Get another pan to medium-high heat and add 1 tbsp cooking oil
  5. Add half the cauliflower. Stir until brown on one side (~5 minutes)
  6. Repeat with second batch of cauliflower in a new pan, adding the other half of the ginger and garlic.
  7. Combine batches of cauliflower in pan.
  8. Add water and remaining salt. Bring to a simmer, cover, and cook until tender (~7 minutes)
  9. Stir in chickpeas and chiles; cook uncovered until chickpeas are heated through and liquid is gone (~3 minutes)
