Minted Shrimp with Sambal

I happened to have a bunch of fresh mint and I always have frozen shrimp in the freezer so this dinner came together fast. There is a bit of chopping but I used two shortcuts: ready made sambal from Trader Joe's and Uncle Ben's Microwave Brown rice.

Serves two:

16 large shrimp (thawed if frozen)
1 T honey
juice from one large lime
t of salt
1/2 cup chopped fresh mint
2 cloves of garlic sliced
2 T sesame oil
4 large scallions sliced thinly. white and green parts kept separate
2 T white wine

Trader Joe Sambal (condiment)


Mix the honey, lime juice, salt and mint with the shrimp

In skillet, heat sesame oil, add the garlic and stir--don't let it brown. Add the white part of the green onion. Next add the shrimp mixture and cook for several minutes until shrimp is cooked. Add the green part of the scallions and black pepper-stir. Serve over rice with a dollop of sambal on top. Very delish!
