Shrimp Fiesta!

Got a hold of some jumbo shrimps on sale at whole foods and paid 5$ for 1/2 lb ! woohoo! So what I did to treat these lovely crustaceans was : xx virgin olive oil in a pot, throw’em in and for about 10-15 minutes turn around. Threw some fresh garlic in there as well, and if I wasn’t too lazy i would’ve chopped like half an onion and put it in prior to the shrimps.

While the shrimps are fr-fr-frying take a small cup and throw in a good amount of mustard. put some (warm not cold) water, some honey, some balsamic, and some spices you like; I put in a tiny bit of curry powder, black pepper, and some dry red chili pepper. For some weird reason, lets call it intuition, I grabbed a tomato, cut it in half and squeezed the inside in the cup. Stir, stir, stir very well and finally throw in the pot, lower the fire and cover it with the lid but do not close it all the way. Keep the skin of the tomatoes.

Then I grabbed some string beans and mixed them with the tomatoes and with one habanero pepper. After taking the shrimps out, with whatever juices are left in the pot I cooked the string beans mix, same way, with the lid closed.

In the meantime, in the smaller pot, I cooked some of the purple jasmine rice. DELICIOUS. Put a tiny bit of oil, throw in the rice, stir for a minute, fill with water and let it cook for around 15 minutes. If the water is not being absorbed you can always dump some out. Turn the FIAH off and let it absorb the tiny bit of water that was left.
Serve.
