Edamame Succotash with Shrimp

Submitted by: PSETZER

Introduction

We give succotash—traditionally a Southern dish made with corn, lima beans and peppers—an update using edamame instead of limas and turn it into a main dish by adding shrimp. To get it on the table even faster, purchase peeled, deveined shrimp from the fish counter instead of doing it yourself. Make it a meal: All you need is a warm piece of cornbread to go with this complete meal. -From Eating Well We give succotash—traditionally a Southern dish made with corn, lima beans and peppers—an update using edamame instead of limas and turn it into a main dish by adding shrimp.

Ingredients

    * 2 slices bacon
    * 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    * 1 bunch scallions, sliced, or 1 medium onion, diced
    * 1 red bell pepper, diced
    * 2 cloves garlic, minced
    * 1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme
    * 1 10-ounce package frozen shelled edamame, (see Tip), thawed
    * 1 10-ounce package frozen corn, (about 2 cups), thawed
    * 1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth
    * 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
    * 1/4 teaspoon salt
    * 1 pound raw shrimp, (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined
    * 1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper

Directions

Makes 4 servings, about 1.5 cups each

Preparation

1. Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes. Leaving the drippings in the pan, use tongs to transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels; let cool.
2. Add oil to the pan. Add scallions (or onion), bell pepper, garlic and thyme and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in edamame, corn, broth, vinegar and salt. Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes.
3. Meanwhile, sprinkle shrimp on both sides with lemon pepper. Scatter the shrimp on top of the vegetables, cover and cook until the shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes. Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it on top.

Tips & Notes

* Tip: Edamame are found in the natural-foods freezer section of large supermarkets and natural-foods stores, sold both in and out of the “pods.” For this recipe, you'll need the shelled edamame. One 10-ounce bag contains about 2 cups of shelled beans.
