Scramble fan Annie Canby suggested this simple preparation for shrimp. If you prefer, grill the shrimp on skewers or broil them on a baking sheet, flipping them once.
- 1 lb. fresh or frozen large shrimp peeled and deveined, preferably US or Canadian farmed or wild shrimp
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard (use wheat/gluten-free if needed)
- 1 Tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 Tbsp. honey
- 1 Tbsp. reduced-sodium soy sauce (use wheat/gluten-free if needed) or use any variety
- 1/4 tsp. black pepper
- 1 1/2 cups white or quick-cooking brown rice
- If you are not marinating the shrimp, prepare the rice according to the package directions now.
- Thaw the shrimp (if using frozen) by soaking them in several changes of cold water for 5 minutes. Drain the shrimp thoroughly in a colander and pat them dry with a clean dishcloth.
- In a measuring cup, mix together the mustard, oil, honey, soy sauce, and pepper.
- In a medium bowl, mix the shrimp and marinade together. If time allows, marinate the shrimp in the refrigerator for 30 minutes or up to 12 hours, and begin rice 25 minutes before you plan to eat. If not, proceed to the next step.
- In a medium nonstick skillet over medium heat, sauté the shrimp and sauce for 3 - 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until the shrimp become pink and opaque. Serve the shrimp and sauce over the rice.
Do Ahead or Delegate: Thaw the shrimp, make the marinade and marinate the shrimp in the refrigerator, cook the rice. Scramble Flavor Booster: Add 1 tsp. hot chili oil to the marinade and use hot Chinese mustard instead of Dijon. Tip: When making the marinade for this dish, use the tablespoon to measure the olive oil first and then the honey. The oil will leave a slick residue on the tablespoon and help to keep the honey from sticking.
