We made this recipe on a whim the other night at our cabin and enjoyed it out on the deck - perfect on a warm summer's evening.
Start with your ingredients - fresh and organic if possible - and if you so desire, a glass of wine to enjoy while you cook.
- Olive oil
- 1 cup sliced red and yellow bell peppers
- 1 cup diced onion
- 1/2 cup sliced zucchini
- 1/2 cup sliced mushrooms
- 1 tbsp curry paste
- 1 lime
- Fresh basil
- 1 tsp chopped ginger
- 1 - 2 cloves chopped garlic
- Uncooked, deveined, shelled shrimp
- 1/2 cup whole roasted, unsalted cashews
- Fresh ground pepper and sea salt
- Optional - small can of coconut milk
Saute the peppers, onion, zucchini, mushrooms in olive oil (or you can substitute broth). When they are almost done, stir in the garlic, ginger, basil, curry paste, and lime juice. Add salt and pepper to taste (I stay away from salt). If you want your dish to have more sauce, add the coconut milk.
We use this nifty lime squeezer that we got on one of our vacations in Mexico. It's a great tool.
In another pan, saute your shrimp lightly until they are pink. Don't overcook them!
(We are big fans of cooking with cast iron, and have a variety of pans to choose from at our cabin and at home. Some of them we've had for over 35 years!)
Once your shrimp are done, you're ready to put your dish together...
You can serve this shrimp stir fry on rice or enjoy it alone (as pictured above)if you are watching your carbs. On your plate, layer your cooked veggies, then shrimp, then top with cashews and garnish with slices of lime and/or fresh herbs.
Enjoy this easy shrimp recipe!
(Thanks to Marlena for the fresh basil! Mmmmm.)
