All-In-One Healthy Curried Shrimp Recipe

When I saw the photo of this all-in-one meal in the March 2011 issue of Men’s Health magazine, I had to try it.  It’s simple and quick (about 35 minutes).  Besides the curried shrimp dish, I also made healthy oven-fried zucchini sticks from a recipe on the American Council on Exercise website.  We opened a bottle of Gewurtstraminer wine (Pinot Grigio or a light Chardonnay would have been good choices, too).  I tweaked this recipe slightly.

Ingredients (serves four)

  • 3/4 lb. Raw Shrimp (25 ct. size) peeled & deveined
  • Trimmed grean beans (about 30)
  • Cauliflower florets (about 30)
  • 1 tsp Curry powder
  • Olive Oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • Sliced Almonds

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 400°
  2. In a large bowl, toss together grean beans, cauliflower, 2 tbls olive oil, salt and pepper (seasoned to taste).  Spread out vegetables on a baking sheet and roast on middle rack for 20 minutes.
  3. While vegetables are baking, place shrimp in a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and season with salt, pepper and a few dashes of curry powder.  I also added a few dashes of Old Bay seasoning for some extra “kick”.
  4. After 20 minutes, add the shrimp by spreading them out among the green beans and cauliflower on the baking sheet.  Roast for about 5-7 minutes until the shrimp are pink and the cauliflower is browned.
  5. Served sprinkled with the sliced almonds (optional).

Enjoy!
