Well, it seems only one person "got it" and sent me a recipe.
I may not have made it understood in the posts leading up to yesterday that we were playing a VIRTUAL game. You know, IF you had XYZ on hand, what would you make?
Well...at any rate, a dear friend of mine sent me the best looking recipe containing those 3 ingredients and I will post it here and tell you to go and visit Ally at Grocery Maven. She would love to have you peek in at her world :o) and it's a worthwhile read as well. Thanks Ally!
Okay Anne, this is what I would do if I found myself at home one day with shrimp, an orange, and couscous. Let's assume it's a
box of whole wheat couscous, since that's better for you, and at least a
pound of medium tiger shrimp, peeled and deveined. The orange is
peeled and sectioned.
I would also add: 1-1/2 chopped onion, 1 tbsp minced garlic, 1 tbsp
minced ginger, 1 sliced red bell pepper, 2 zucchini, sliced, 1 cup +
1/2 cup chicken broth, 1/4 cup orange juice, 1 tbsp olive oil, soy
sauce to taste, salt, black pepper, cornstarch.
Here's what I'd do:
1) Prepare the coucous as the box directs, subbing in one cup of
chicken broth for one cup of water, and adding the chopped onion half
to the water/broth mixture.
2) Saute the chopped onion, ginger and garlic in a non-stick frying
pan on medium with about a tbsp of olive oil, until the onions are
translucent. Add the sliced pepper and the zucchini to the pan, with
1/2 cup chicken broth, orange juice and soy sauce to taste. Cover and
simmer until zucchini is nearly done. Take the cover off, and toss in
the shrimp and the orange sections, stirring and tossing until cooked
but not over cooked. Taste, and add salt and pepper if needed. If you
like a thicker sauce, thicken with 1 tbsp cornstarch dissolved in 1/4
cup water, stir and add to the pan liquid, and simmer until thickened.
Serve the shrimp dish over the couscous.
