Traveling the world through cuisine

Zuzana’s Slovak Shrimp

Shrimp isn't generally known to Slovakia, but we decided to imagine it was with the seasoning combo.

Zuzana’s Slovak Shrimp


  • 2 tbsp of olive oil
  • 1 medium-size onion, diced
  • 1 lb of shrimp
  • 2 tsp of Vegeta
  • 2 tsp of paprika
  • 1 tsp of oregano
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat up the olive oil in a large frying pan or wok on medium heat.
  2. When oil is hot, place the onions in and cook them until they start to brown.
  3. Add shrimp, Vegeta, paprika, and oregano to the pan and stir.
  4. Cook shrimp until hot and liquids become more saucy in texture.

Quick Notes

If you seemingly have a lot of liquid from the shrimp, then I suggest either pouring out some liquid or pouring some of the liquid into a cup with a tbsp of cornstarch. Stir the cornstarch with liquid and then add back into the pan to thicken.

Serving Suggestions

Zuzana likes this dish by itself, but I prefer it on top of rice or even pasta.
