Remember my recent post that included a reasonably priced bag of frozen shrimp?
Well...we're moving and I needed to use it up.
This was sort of what I had in mind...it made me crave white wine.
I stopped at the store and was noticed a slight drop in produce prices now that spring has arrived.
Trying to buy as little as possible for this meal, I grabbed a lemon, a bag of snow peas and a small pack of bean sprouts. THAT WAS IT! Less than $6.00 later...for the meal items, I'm not including wine there...and you don't need to know how much I spend at that store...
We already had the garlic and the brown and wild rice. Veg oil, onions, had those too. Strangley enough we had a small bottle of wite wine vinegar ini the pantry from a previous recipe attempt. We also already had the coriander in a grinder. At the least minute I threw in some slivered almonds I snagged at the Bulk Barn!
Salt and pepper? Check!
Boil rice. Fry onion and garlic in a pan in veg oil.
Toss in the thawed shrimp, handful of sprouts, handful of snow peas, splash of lemon juice and coriander ground up. Add a tablespoon of butter or marg if you like a thicker sauce.
Insert white wine here...or in the pan if you wish.
Add some white wine vinegar if you want some zip...but it's fine without it too.
S & P to taste.
Heat pan until aromatic (makes the house smell yummy) and serve on rice (drained)!
You can eat this with chopsticks if you like to add flare to a meal...but its not required.
