there used to be a time when I only ate shrimp if it was breaded and fried. I hardly cooked it myself, and when I did I longed for someone else’s shrimp. This recipe has enlightened my taste buds and shown me there is a place for shrimp in my kitchen. The ingredients were delivered thanks to Blue Apron, and everything was ready to cook when I got home from work.
- 10 oz Shrimp
- 1/2 lb Red Potatoes
- 1 Tbsp Sherry Vinegar
- 2 Tbsp Ghee
- 1 Yellow Onion
- 4 oz Sweet Peppers
- 2 Cloves Garlic
- 1 Tbsp Spanish Spice Blend
It was easy to make, and all the ingredients were provided in correct portions. Not to mention, they were extremely delicious! If you’re looking for a slightly lower carb option you can replace the potatoes with alternative vegetables.
As you can see, the ingredients are all laid out and ready to start. The instructions are on the reverse side of the flyer, and are easy to follow. Honestly this would be a great idea to cook with kids. From the meat and veggies to the seasonings and dressings everything is accounted for and ready for cooking.
The first step is to cut the potatoes into little cubes. The key here is to make them consistent in size. This allows them to cook evenly and works great for shoveling the right amount with a shrimp into your mouth.
Next you’ll dice up the onions and peppers. No need to get ready eyed… something as simple as putting a piece of bread in your mouth can help prevent this when cutting onions. Or just wear googles, whatever works for you!
Next up is the sweet peppers. I like to cut these in little crescent moon style pieces. It works well with the onions and shrimp, the way they’re shaped.
The original recipe called for baking the potatoes in the oven, but I made this during peak hour (shame on me) so I opted to use the gas stove instead. Season them with the Spanish style seasoning, and then use the same pan to sauté the peppers and onions.
Once you’re done cooking both of those, now it’s time to move onto the shrimp. Dump the potatoes, pepper, and onions into a separate bowl to free up the pan for the shrimp.
Using a small bit of olive oil with the ghee, and make sure it’s fully melted before tossing in the shrimp. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and add the chopped garlic cloves. Right about now you’ll want to just devour everything in sight, but hold on a minute. Wait until the shrimp is fully cooked, and then dish it up over the potatoes and vegetable mix.
Voila! A magnificent garlic shrimp recipe! The Spanish style seasoning adds a great kick to this already delicious combination of garlic and shrimp.
