From the kitchen of One Perfect Bite...At this time of year I seek out recipes that are fast and easy to make. I found this this simple, but delicious, dish while paging through, a new to me, blog called Savour Fare. I really enjoyed this meal and I think you will too. I simplified the recipe a bit by using pre-bagged florets and shrimp that were ready to be cooked. I also increased the cooking times slightly to insure the vegetables were done to our taste and I cut back, just a bit, on the amount of pepper used to make this nicely spiced dish. This is a terrific recipe to have in the hopper for the days that lead up to the holidays. It took about 10 minutes to put this meal together and it cooks in less than a half hour. I'm happy to share the recipe with you and I hope will give it a try.
