Place shrimp in a bowl and dust with cayenne and turmeric. Rub seasonings onto shrimp. Heat oil in large skillet over medium high heat. When oil is hot, add mustard seeds. In a couple of seconds the seeds will begin to pop; at this time add garlic and stir constantly. When garlic turns golden, add chile and stir. Add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until cooked through, about 3 minutes. Season with salt and cilantro and serve.
