I actually want to call this semi-home made (the famous food network show). This is again one of the non-veg dishes I made while my brother was visiting me during the thanksgiving weekend. I know its been like nearly three weeks to that, but I have actually not been doing any serious cooking lately, that is why I am posting recipes that I made some time back. Well now that the holiday season is going to begin in full swing and I will be having guests coming over, there will be lots of food and lots of fun. But about that later.

Coming back to my shrimp dish that I dished out it no more than twenty minutes (should I not call it 30 minute meal??? forget it.....). It did not require any preparation as the shrimp as well as the veggies I used were all frozen. So all I actually did, was think what sauces should go into it and with what will it taste the best.

so here goes the recipe.

You will need
  • frozen garlic butter shrimp- 1 packet (I picked this up from Ralphs)
  • frozen asian stir- fry vegetables- 1 packet (found in the frozen vegetable section of any grocery store)
  • onion (slices)-1
  • chilly sauce- 1 tbsp
  • soy sauce- 1 tbsp
  • tomato sauce- 1 tbsp
  • salt and pepper - to taste
  • sugar- a pinch

You have to 
  1. heat a pan. To this add the frozen shrimp. do not add any oil, as the garlic butter on the shrimp will melt once heated through.
  2. once the shrimp heats up, (about five minutes),add the sliced onions.cook for a minute.
  3. add the frozen vegetables.
  4. add salt, cover and cook for a few minutes.
  5. now add all the sauces, along with the pepper and the sugar.
  6. cook on low heat till the shrimp and the vegetables become soft.
  7. the entire cooking time will take around 15-20 minutes.
  8. check for seasoning.
  9. serve hot over steamed rice.
a quick meal with proteins, carbs and lots of veggies, ready in no time.

because this meal was super simple to make, I decided to send this for Recipes for the rest of us event hosted by Ramki of one page cookbooks
