Wish me luck! I'm going to need it!
Tonight I made a surprisingly good dinner with low calories and awesome flavor. Win!
Here is what you are going to need for 2 people:
-3 Bell Peppers (Red, Green & Yellow)
-1 tsp minced Garlic
-1/4 tsp crushed Red Pepper
-1/2 tsp Salt-divided
-2 Green Onions-chopped
-1/2 lb baby Shrimp
-1/2 tsp Chili Powder
-1 tbsp Lime Juice
-1 tbsp Butter
-2 tbsp Olive Oil
First you want to prepare your shrimp. De-vein the shrimp, thaw out the shrimp...do what you gotta do!
Then you will want to take your Bell Peppers....
And cut them into strips.
Heat your large saucepan over medium heat and pour 1 tbsp of Olive Oil into the pan. Once it gets nice and hot, toss in the sliced Bell Peppers.
I love the bright colors!
Add in the minced garlic...
Then add the crushed Red Pepper...
Stir the bell peppers around and cook for 4 minutes until they are crispy/tender. Sprinkle with 1/4 tsp of salt and set them aside.
In another pan, or the same pan, whatever you choose to do (the less dishes to wash, the better!). Add another tbsp of Olive Oil and add the chopped Green Onions. Let them cook for 1 minute and stir frequently.
Add the shrimp to the pan...
And then add the chili powder and stir to combine.
Cook for 2-4 minutes depending on the size of shrimp you use and the "doneness" you want the shrimp. Don't forget to stir frequently!
Once the shrimp is done cooking, remove it from heat and add the lime juice, butter and 1/4 tsp of salt.
Serve with rice and enjoy!
