The Daily Chaos of Kalamity K
Inspired for Dinner - Shrimp Veracruz...
I am home, alone [will wonders never cease, sex last night
and home alone for an hour tonight, holy shit!], and
feeling like shit, and I have to leave in 30 freaking
minutes to get to the place where I have my meeting for
the symphony tonight and I am going to go and make a
proper dinner. What? Yeah. That's what I thought, too.
As usual, trying to do something for which I don't have
time, but thinking I'll be okay to do it. I don't know.
I'm ever so optimistic about things some times...
And now I present to you, Shrimp Veracruz...
1 serving cooking spray, (5 one-second sprays per serving)
1 small onion(s), white, finely chopped
1 average jalapeno pepper(s), cored, seeded and minced (do
not touch seeds with bare hands)
1 medium garlic clove(s), minced
1 1/4 pound shrimp, large, peeled, deveined and tails
3 medium tomato(es), cored and diced
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp cilantro, minced
Coat a 12-inch nonstick skillet with cooking spray. Add
onion, jalapeno and garlic. Sauté over medium-high heat
for 2 minutes. Add shrimp and sauté 1 minute, stirring
Add tomatoes, salt and pepper. Reduce heat to low and
simmer 5 minutes. Stir in lime juice and cilantro. Simmer
1 to 2 more minutes so flavors blend. Yields about 1 cup
