How to write a recipe

Do you hesitate in sharing because you're not sure about how to write a recipe?

It's not difficult to write a professional style recipe but to make it really easy we've prepared a simple guide and all you need to do is fill in the blanks.

To publish your favorite shrimp or prawn recipe here on Shrimp Magic, just follow the guide below and we'll put your recipe on a dedicated web page exclusively for you.

Preliminary steps

  1. Decide on a name for your recipe.  The best recipe name, in our opinion, describes the main ingredient and something about what is special about the preparation. These are very basic examples, I wouldn't be surprised if you are much more inventive.   Examples:
    • Grandma's Boiled Shrimp Recipe
    • Hawaiian Coconut Shrimp
    • Chinese Garlic Prawns
    • Heart-healthy Shrimp Stir Fry
  2. Make a rough list of all your ingredients:
    • put your ingredient list in the order which you use them in the recipe.
    • decide how many servings your recipe makes
    • If you wish to adjust your recipe to a different number of servings, use our recipe calculator (opens new window.)  You can also use this converter to change your measurement between US or metric measurements.
  3. If you have one, get a picture of your finished preparation in .jpg format.
  4. See Recipe Writing Tips, if you want more ideas of how to adapt a recipe you got somewhere else to be yours.

Now How to Write your Recipe

Just fill in the blanks in the spaces below, replacing the guide words in each of the boxes with your own words describing your recipe. You can use some of our suggested phrases or be as creative as you like.

When you're done, click on the submit button and you'll see a first draft of your recipe.  At that point you will be given a chance to upload a photo, and provide your name (or nickname) to have credit for the recipe published.

When you're happy with the way things look, you can choose to have an email sent to you, by choosing to be notified when the page is published, and you're done!

Your Recipe:


Wasn't that simple?  You're on the road to being an expert recipe writer.

Now, when you click on the Submit Review button, below, you'll be taken to a new page where you will see a draft of your complete recipe.  This is the regular entry page where you could enter a recipe, but without all the guiding questions you had above. 


Use the next page to add a photo then click the submit button because your work on this page has already been done! unless you want to edit what you see there. If you have a photo to add, the place to do it is just below the area with your draft recipe text.

You'll then be taken to a final review area where you have a chance to polish it up and make changes if you want
