So I made Broccoli shrimp in lime juice today. It was a total invention based of the fact we had shrimp and Brocoli in the freezer, we love the combination, and [personal profile] ernads wants less fat in her diet- which ruled out our previous default for this(Broccoli shrimp in coconut milk and lemon grass). I originally planned on doing this with plain lemons, but there were limes in the market this morning, at which I went !!! and bought a dozen. It was declared way better then the last default, [personal profile] ernads basically purred over it.
So, the recipe:
materials:
500 gr frozen boiled and peeled shrimp(which translates to 400 gr after the ice thawed out)
400 gr frozen brocoli
2 medium limes(I don't *think* lemon will work here, but you can try)
some dry or semi-dry white wine
2 big onions
3 cloves of garlic
tom-yum paste
pan big enough to hold everything

process:
1.cut the onion into smallish cubes

2. heat a bit of olive oil in a pan over medium fire and throw the onions in to fry when it's hot enough

3. while the onions are frying make preparations:

3.1thaw the broccoli and the shrimps, in as cold water as your tap has so you won't heat them too much
before they hit the pan

3.2 mince the garlic and put it in a small saucer or dish

3.3 juice the limes into a small saucer

4. when all the preparations are done the onion is probably starting to become translucent: heat the fire to a high burn and stir constantly.

5.When the onion starts to brown ad a bit of white wine and continue to stir.
6. when most of the onion had turned brown, add the garlic and stir vigorously for 10 seconds
7. add about 1/4 teaspoon tom-yum paste, stir vigorously for 5 seconds
8. lower the flame to medium and add the broccoli and a bit more white wine, stir a bit for 1-2 minutes
9. add the shrimps, stir a bit and then add the lime juice and, if you think that you want more fluids, a bit more white wine
10. continue stirring for 1-2 minutes then turn the flame off and cover, wait for about 5 minutes and eat with your favorite carbs.
