Dinner tonight was one of those “I’ve got 15 minutes to make dinner… let’s go!” meals and it was fabulous, if I do say so myself. You should try this recipe and use The Force to make your own amazing 15 minute dinner.
I started with a pound of frozen shrimp (the bagged stuff from my local grocery store that is usually on sale), a bag of broccoli slaw, and a sauce mixture of hoisin sauce, James River Chardonnay, spoonful of flour, a thumb-size amount of lemongrass and a thumb-size amount of garlic. When I walked in the door, I started peeling the shrimp that my husband had pulled out of the freezer and put in water.
Once the shrimp were peeled, I put some good olive oil in a large skillet and sauteed the shrimp until they were pink and a little toasty. I then added half the bag of broccoli slaw and sauteed everything together. Once the vegetables were slightly softened, I added the sauce and gave the entire meal a moment in the pan to allow the flour to cook a bit and thicken. I had popped some brown rice into the microwave just as I added the vegetables, so dinner was ready in just about 15 minutes.
Dinner was served over brown rice and it was amazing…. so simple and quick, yet the flavors melded together nicely and made for a great meal. Try playing with wine when making dinner. It can be fun to come up with different ways to utilize wine in place of chicken stock.
There’s something so wonderful about creating a dinner that makes your loved ones happy… wishing you a lovely evening and a grand meal!
