Shrimp and Spinach Stir Fry with Black Bean Sauce



We love this dish from Monica Puri Bangia’s wonderful culinary blog, Sharing Plate – Your Cooking Coach.

She’s an incredibly versatile chef who studied at the French Culinary Institute in New York City, who lives about 15 miles west of Manhattan, and creates simple, palate-pleasing dishes with superior, healthy ingredients.

Here's what she wrote about her delightful recipe:

“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.

“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 got 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!”
