The elixir of life, the way to a man's heart, manna from heaven--no matter what you call it, food is a part of all of us. It defines us culturally, brings back childhood memories, and is sometimes the best escape from a down right hard day. With a busy home, and an even more chaotic schedule I am constantly on the hunt for easy recipes. Not necessarily the pre-packaged and processed kind. But ones where the ingredients are real and fresh. This recipe is the latter. I promise it won't disappoint!
1 tbs butter
2 tbs minced ginger
4 garlic cloves, crushed and minced
1 tbs curry powder/red curry
1 ½ lbs uncooked shrimp, deveined and peeled
1 lb sea scallops
6 green onions, roughly chopped
1 cup cream
1 tsp lemon zest
1 ½ c. of white rice, cooked
½ cup chopped cilantro
Warm butter in large skillet over high heat. Add ginger, garlic and curry powder, sauteing until fragrant (2 min). Add shrimp, scallops and green onion. Saute seafood, flipping scallops before proceeding to the next step (4 min). Add cream and lemon peel, simmering until shrimp and scallops are opaque in the center and the sauce has reduced (5 min). Season with salt and pepper. Mound rice in a bowl, top with curry and cilantro.
