Nutritious & delicious, shrimp can make a contribution to your world’s healthiest way of eating, excellent source of selenium, Vitamin B12, also high in Phosphorus, choline, copper, Iodine and a source of protein. We usually have it as a treat about once a month, having come from the coastal city of Alexandria, I know my seafood well, and am able to choose non farmed seafood, that is fresh and good quality, Freshness is key when it comes to nutirtion.
Brown Rice is an excellent source of Manganese & selenium, along with other vitamins and minerals. Consult your health care practitioner if you’re diabetic on the amount of rice you can consume.
- 1 cup of organic brown rice.
- 1 diced medium red onion.
- 1 tsp cold pressed coconut oil.
- 1/2 tsp pink or sea salt.
- A few peeled shrimps.
- 1/2 tsp Turmeric.
- 1/2 black pepper.
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon.’I only use Cylon Cinamon’
- A handful of Cranberries
- A handful of activated nuts. ‘here I use chopped hazel nuts, brazil nuts & pine nuts’
- Optional, Samphire to garnish.
Sautee the onions in the coconut oil, once translucent add the turmeric, cinnamon, salt & stir before adding the rice, stir for a few minutes till all the rice is coated with the onions, spices, then add 3 glasses of boiled water,, yes I’m afraid brown rice absorbs a lot of water to cook. cook as you would any rice, once water absorbed, lower the heat and add the shrimps on top for further 10 minutes or so till all is cooked.
Before serving, line a bowl with the cranberries, nuts and the shrimps, top with the rice and add a generous amount of either black or Cayenne pepper. Tip the bowl upside down on a serving plate, garish with samphire or any other sea vegetable. Enjoy xx
