One of my favorite things about Spring are all the delicious vegetables that become available at the market! The freshness of in-season produce make cooking a simple delicious spring meal so easy and fast. Music to your ears and your skin, nails and hair! A perfect way to slim down and beautify in preparation for summer.
Let’s talk about a simple, beautiful and delicious Spring Recipe. Shrimp & Green Veggie that I make in my cast iron pan and transfer right to the table for serving. In this dish I used sugar snap peas, asparagus and edamame, all sourced at my local natural foods market but you can get creative.
One Pan Spring Greens & Shrimp
1-1/2 pounds of shrimp
Bunch of asparagus, washed & chopped
Bunch of sugar snap peas, washed & trimmed
Bag of organic edamame out of shell
1/2 lemon, juiced
Sea Salt & fresh ground pepper
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
1 Teaspoon each black and white sesame seeds
Cooking oil like avocado, coconut
1 teaspoon of toasted sesame oil
2 cups of cooked brown rice (1/2 cup per serving)
Start by heating your cooking oil in your cast iron or skillet. While that’s heating season your shrimp with lemon, salt and pepper. First add to your pan the minced garlic and let brown before adding in your washed and trimmed vegetables. Sauté for about 2 minutes and add in the shrimp. Then add all the seasonings. Sauté until a bright green color is released and the vegetables are crisp but cooked. Then shrimp will turn a nice pink color to show they are cooked, be sure not to over cook. Top with sesame oil in the last 2 minutes of cooking. Turn off the heat and serve with cooked brown rice. If desired you can top with soy sauce or teriyaki. All of this takes less than 30 minutes and you have a healthy, pretty and delicious meal!
Enjoy this simple delicious spring meal with those you love! Happy Spring!
