After stocking up on the basics and things I really enjoy like strawberries, fresh spinach and fresh bell peppers, I wanted to create a recipe for myself and lil bear to enjoy for supper. During my research I found turmeric is supposed to be one of the most effective natural anti-inflammatory foods, so below is tonight's recipe for Spicy Shrimp & rice with garlic infused vegetables.
1/2lb raw shrimp (shells/veins removed)
1 tablespoon butter
1 clove fresh garlic
2 cups cooked rice (whichever you prefer)
1 small head broccoli
4 oz whole button mushrooms
Steam fresh bags (great for steaming veggies)
How to make it
Set oven to 375 degrees. Lay a large sheet of foil on a baking sheet(double the size of baking pan)and give a light spray of Pam or similar. Sprinkle a little of your Cajun spices, basil and turmeric onto oiled foil, then lay shrimp in a single layer on top. Take the butter and place a very small amount on each shrimp, then finish with another sprinkling of Cajun spices, basil and turmeric. (the more you use the spicier they will be so use to your particular taste preferences) Fold over foil to cover shrimp so that they will steam, gathering up sides to form a pouch and place in oven for 18-25 minutes.
Wash broccoli and mushrooms, cut broccoli into smaller florets but leave mushrooms whole and place inside steam fresh bag. Dice garlic clove and add to vegetables. About 5 minutes before shrimp are cooked, put steam fresh bag in the microwave (follow manufacturers instructions for timing) on high for approximately 4-5 minutes.
When ready serve over a bed of your favorite rice, we like to cheat so use the little minute rice tubs but you can use any style you prefer.
