Originally, I was not going to do a post on this recipe. I added an unusual * ingredient, thinking this could go one way or the other - good, or not so good. It was good! A lovely meal for one, whether for lunch or dinner. With a few extra green beans from the garden and collard greens - this tasty meal did not need any of the starches. The only time you will see a meal for one on this blog...DH is away, my kids are busy - it's just me and the critters. It's fun cooking for one sometimes...you really get to play in the kitchen.
2 Tblsp. butter, 1 Tblsp. Olive oil
12 thawed prawns, tail/head off
3-4 sliced crimini mushrooms
3 Tblsp. sliced onion or roughly chopped
1 large roughly chopped garlic clove
1/2 - 2/3 cup finely shredded greens - I used collard greens but spinach or chard would be lovely
handful of fresh green beans, trimmed
* 1 Tblsp. Gluten Free Seafood Sauce - Heinz is gluten free
1 Tblsp. Soy Sauce
Splash of water
salt and pepper
Heat up a pan on low heat with the butter and olive oil. Add in the chopped garlic clove and let simmer until fragrant. Remove the garlic with a slotted spoon and set aside. Turn up the heat to medium, and add in the shrimp, seasoning with salt and pepper. Saute until cooked - pink and tail end curled.
Remove to the plate of garlic and set aside. Turn the heat down to medium low, adding in another drizzle of olive oil. To the pan, add in the mushrooms, onion, greens, green beans and saute about five minutes. Then add in the soy sauce, water, and seafood sauce, stirring to combine.
Lid on turn down to a simmer for another five minutes. Add in the cooked prawns and garlic stirring to combine, and serve hot.
