A variation on our Citrus-Dill Shrimp & Veggies. We heated some lemon-infused canola oil in our trusty dutch oven, added some asparagus and the juice of half a lemon. Let the asparagus cook for a couple of minutes, stirring frequently.
Then we added the raw shrimp we had defrosted and removed the tails from. Squeezed in the juice of the other half of the lemon and some citrus-dill spice blend. Cooked until the shrimp turned pink & served!
We had some leftover chicken and some leftover shrimp in the fridge. Enough for half a portion each for both of us. So we mixed them together with a salad of greens, tomatoes and cucumbers, dressed with some balsamic and a touch of low-fat dressing. Easy to throw together, a great use of leftovers & no cooking!
Chopped up a bunch of basil we needed to use up, put it some vegetable stock and added some garlic, salt, and pepper and pureed it and then poured it over the shrimp to marinate for a few hours.
Parboiled some chopped dandelion — or, as Brian says, “dandy lion” — greens and set them aside. Heated up a couple of teaspoons of oil in our trusty dutch oven and sauteed some julienned summer squash and red peppers until they were about half done, removed them from the pot and set aside with the greens. Threw the shrimp in the pot to sauté. Added the greens and veggies when the shrimp had mostly turned pink and tossed it all together until veggies and shrimp were cooked through.
Two of our favorite proteins on one plate! Both bison and shrimp come from the “leanest” protein category, which means we can have a full seven (combined) ounces cooked!
One of our favorites! Another quick & easy one-pot dish. Panang curry powder is a smokey, mildly spicy red-colored Thai spice blend. If you like, kick up the heat with some Sriracha or Sambel Olek or similar. Change out the protein (chicken or tofu?) and veggies to your liking. Continue reading
Quick & easy. We pulled cleaned & peeled raw shrimp out of the freezer in the morning before work*, stopped at the Farmers Market on the way home and picked up some veggies and threw this meal together in 20 minutes. Continue reading
