Number of Servings: 4

Ingredients

    16 oz. raw shrimp, peeled & cleaned (about 28 medium)
    1 fresh lime
    1/2 tsp. fresh ginger, chopped
    1 tbsp. low-sodium tamari
    1 tsp. olive oil
    1 small onion, chopped
    2 medium cloves garlic, chopped
    4 oz. fresh snow peas

Tips

Don't leave shrimp sitting in the lime juice mixture for more than a few minutes, as the citrus will begin to "cook" the shrimp.


Directions

Place shrimp in a small bowl and grate lime peel over them; toss with juice of 1/2 lime, ginger and tamari. Set aside.

Heat oil in a large, non-stick pan over medium heat. Saute onion and garlic until soft, but not brown (about 1-2 minutes). Add shrimp mixture and snow peas to pan; cook until shrimp is opaque and snow peas are tender-crisp (about another 3-4 minutes).

Serve over brown rice and squeeze juice of remaining 1/2 lime over each plate.

Serving Size: Makes 4 servings
