Paprika Shrimp & Green Bean Saute
Health Rating
This dish packs a punch of both protein and fibre with delicately spiced shrimp and beans.


3 cup Green/yellow string beans, raw (trimmed)
4 cup Lima beans, canned (drained, rinsed)
3 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup Garlic (minced)
1/2 cup Parsley, fresh
2 tsp Paprika
1/2 tsp Sea salt
1 dash Black pepper (to taste)
500 gm Shrimp, raw (peeled and deveined)
4 tbsp Wine vinegar


1. To cook green/yellow beans, bring 1 inch of water to a boil in a large saucepan. Put beans in a steamer basket, place in the pan, cover, and steam until tender-crisp, about 4 to 6 minutes.

2. Remove lima beans from the can, and rinse thoroughly with water.

3. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and paprika and cook, stirring constantly, until just fragrant but not browned, about 20 seconds. 

4. Add shrimp and cook until pink and opaque, about 2 minutes per side. Add lima beans, vinegar, and salt; stirring occasionally, until heated through, about 3 minutes. Stir in 1/4 cup parsley.

5. Divide the green/yellow beans among 6 plates. Top with the shrimp and lima bean mixture. Sprinkle with pepper and the remaining 1/4 cup parsley.
