4 May

  
Today calls for a sweet and savoury delight. If you have a craving for both like I did today, you’d enjoy this simple shrimp medley i scrambled together. I enjoy cooking with shrimp because it is so easy to get creative with it, plus its easy and quick! Wishing you all a great week! 

Recipe:

1lb raw and peeled shrimp

ΒΌ cup chopped red onions

1 medium ripe orange (squeezed)

1 chopped garlic clove

2 tbsp pure honey

2 tsp Cajun spice

ΒΌ tsp sea salt

4 tbsp warm water

Sliced red and yellow mini bell peppers

2-3 chopped green onions (for garnish)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sesame seeds

1. First, prepare your Cajun-orange sauce. In a small bowl, add honey, orange juice, Cajun spice, sea salt and warm water and mix until you get a semi thick sauce. Set aside to use for your shrimp.

2. Place a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Add red onions and garlic and simmer for about 30 seconds, then add shrimp and sliced bell peppers and cook for about 1 minute. Finally, add Cajun orange sauce to the shrimp, then cover the skillet and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Turn of your stove and transfer your cooked shrimp into a serving bowl. Top with sesame seeds and green onions and serve when ready.
