I love a meal that I can make super fast. Sometimes (believe it or not) I don't feel like cooking and I jsut want something delicious to be done already. I love a meal that I can throw a couple of things in a bag, go change, come back and cook it it about 10 minutes. It's good to have a few of those in your back pocket for lazy days or days you are so hungry you can't wait for dinner to be done. This shrimp meal is delicious, healthy and super fast. Just serve up the shrimp with sauteed veggies and chinese noodles (which cook in three minutes, so perfect for a fast meal). Or if you can't wait for the onions to soften, toss the shrimp and noodles with some lettuce and additional lime, and spritz of olive oil for a fast and delicious salad.
Sriracha Lime Shrimp:
1 tbsp of Sriracha Sauce
1 lime, juiced and zested
1 lb of shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4 tsp of salt
1/2 tsp of pepper
1 tsp fresh ginger, grated
1/2 cup of vegetable stock or 1 tbps of canola oil for cooking
Place peeled and deveined shrimp in a plastic bag. Stir together the Sriracha, lime juice, sal, pepper, and ginger. Add to the shrimp. Let marinade for 30 minutes to an hour. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add vegetable stock (to boil) or oil (to pan fry). When skillet is hot, add shrimp and cook stirring frequently until they are cooked through, about 4 minutes. Serve with chinese noodles and sauteed vegetables (I used a pepper-onion-mushroom medley). Enjoy.
