Shrimp And Green Beans Recipe Procedures

Step 1

Now to get started with Shrimp and Green Beans recipe, I have my oven preheating at 425 degrees Fahrenheit, and I’m going to start by prepping the shrimp and the green beans. Now, whenever I buy shrimp at the grocery store, I’d like to buy it pre-cleaned and pre-peeled. It just saves a bit of time when it’s time to Cook.

But that option is totally up to you. Now, if making sustainable seafood choices is important to you, I recommend checking out the Monterey Bay Seafood Watch website.

They also have an app that you can download right on your phone. It’s super convenient. You can pull it upright when you’re at the grocery store, and then you can investigate and see which seafood choices you’re making are sustainable and which ones aren’t.

So if that’s important to you, I will make sure to leave that resource link down for you in the description box below. So I have £1 of medium to large shrimp, which have been cleaned and peeled already at the grocery store.

But you’ll see that they do still have their tail on. I like to cook them with the bottom because it doesn’t fuse extra flavour into the dish. But you can take them off if you prefer, and sometimes I do to make it easier.

Step 2

When my kids are eating later, all you would have to do is come down to the bottom, squish the tail and pull it away, and you will see that it slides right off. It’s super easy to do. Whatever your personal preference is, both work. Then I Pat the shrimp dry with a couple of paper towels.

And while steam shrimp is still delicious, roasting them does give them a little bit more depth of flavour, so you want to make sure to get them nice and dry. I’ll transfer the shrimp into a nice big bowl, and then I’m going to season it with one tablespoon of olive oil—the zest from one lemon.

Now, the zest is where all of the essential oils are, so you get lots of bright lemon flavours. So you want to be mindful not to zest the pith. The pith is this white sheath that you will see underneath the lemon zest. And right before the actual lemon fruit, this has a bitter flavour. So that’s why we don’t want to use it.

So we want the nice bright yellow zest of the lemon. Then I’ve got one teaspoon of ground coriander, which is the seed from the cilantro plant, so it’s very fresh and bright, and half a teaspoon of ground cumin, which has a nice warm, smoky flavour.

Step 3

Now, if you want a little bit of spice, a little bit of heat, you could add another quarter to one-two teaspoons of Cayenne pepper as well. Then give it a nice big pinch of kosher salt and some black pepper. I will gently toss this all together, ensuring that all of the shrimp has a nice light coating of the oil and the spices.

I’ll set that aside, and then here I have £1 of green beans that I have washed and padded dry, so I’m just going to give them a trim.

Now you’re going to see one side of the green bean has this long skinny tail; that’s the side we’re keeping on. And then the other side is the side attached to the stem; that’s the side that you want to trim.

Then you can leave them long as they are, or you can cut them in half or cut them in thirds. I’m going to transfer the green beans into a bowl and season them with just a teaspoon of olive oil.

It’s just enough to coat them, then a pinch of salt and some black pepper. I’m going to toss that together gently, get the green beans all coated again with the oil and the spices, and then lay them out on a rimmed baking sheet that I sprayed with a little bit of cooking spray so that nothing sticks.

Step 4

Okay, you want to make sure that you spread them out so they have a little bit of space and they’re not overcrowded. Now the green beans need a head start. So these will go into the oven and cook for ten minutes.

Then after the ten minutes, I’ll take them out, shake them around a bit, and then we’re going to add the shrimp on top of the green beans, and you can just spread them out a bit as well.

Then, pop the tray back into the oven for another eight to ten minutes or until the shrimp is just cooked through and your meal is ready to go. It smells so good; it’s light, it’s fresh.

I love this meal because you have a quality source of lean protein with lots of veggies and a little bit of good healthy fats in there. So, you could enjoy it just the way it is, or you could bulk this up by serving it with some Brown rice or some quinoa.

Or, if you wanted to turn it into a low-carb meal, you could do some cauliflower rice or mashed cauliflower. But, again, you have many options depending on what feels good for your body and your personal preferences. I’m so excited for you guys to give this recipe a try.
