SUPER TASTY SHRIMP DINNER
This dinner serves two and is super fast.
We served it with French fries, a salad, fresh strawberries and blackberries for dessert.
The spicy shrimp pair well with the French fries. The salad is light and refreshing and the fruit is a perfect way to end a great meal.
WHAT YOU NEED
10 fresh or frozen shrimps.
1/2 package of frozen French fries.
4 tablespoons of butter.
6 tablespoons of olive oil.
5 tablespoons of hot sauce or a chili sauce.
2 small cucumbers.
8 cherry tomatoes or 1 large tomato.
2 stalks of green onions.
12 large strawberries.
2 tablespoons brown sugar, if you don’t have it use white sugar.
Preheat your oven to 425 F. Once ready, add your frozen French fries on a baking pan. At the 10 minute mark swoosh them around and the bake for another 10 minutes.
Unthaw your shrimps, if frozen. Make sure, whether frozen or fresh, to pat them nice and dry with a paper towel. Set aside.
Chop up your one of spring onions into pieces.
Pre-heat a frying pan on medium heat. Once hot, add your olive oil.
And then add your cut-up green onions. Cook for about 3 minutes till the onions become translucent and have a nice sheen to them.
Now add your butter and hot sauce.
Turn the heat down to low and cook the mixture for about six minutes or a bit longer until it has a syrupy consistency.
Then turn up the heat to medium and add your shrimps and cook for about three minutes. Stir them around. They will be ready when they start to curl and turn pink.
Cut up your tomatoes, cucumbers, radishes and green onion.
Place everything into a small bowl.
Take 2 tablespoons of olive oil and squeeze half the lemon juice into it. But don’t squeeze fully, leave a tiny bit of juice for the fresh fruit.
Add salt and pepper to taste.
Drizzle your salad dressing over your salad and mix well.
Cut your strawberries into large chunks, leave your blackberries whole.
Place into a small bowl and add your sugar and use that reminder of that 1/2 lemon to squeeze a few drops of the lemon juice over the fruit. Mix well.
Presto, you are ready to plate.
Easy and delish.
