Shrimp and Spinach Stir Fry with Black Bean Sauce

Print Share E-Mail Google+ Twitter Facebook

Today’s recipe comes to us from Monica Puri Bangia’s great food blog, Sharing Plate – Your Cooking Coach.

I am always looking for new recipes to make with shrimp. It is such a favorite in our house that I know whatever I make it will be a hit… well almost everything.

I remembered a dish we have at a local Chinese restaurant
Hunan Spring. It is a black bean and shrimp dish.

I decided to replicate it and went looking for black bean sauce. I actually wanted the dried black beans to make it from scratch but since I didn’t give myself ample time, I had to make do with the prepared black bean sauce.

I decided to buy a bag of baby spinach to add to the dish
it is so much easier to have a dish with protein and a vegetable together. All I had to do was make some delicious brown rice. My secret to brown rice is to sauté it with a mixture of butter and olive oil and then cook it with chicken broth.

As I predicted, the dish was a hit. Everyone loved it!
