Who doesn't love a happy, yummy #dinner accident?
The Ongoing Struggle of Deciding What's for Dinner
Last night I think I possibly made THE best dinner of my life. I don't say those words lightly either. The hilarious part is, I totally threw it together because these days it seems so hard to come up with ideas (am I right, or am I right?!) When Todd brought home shrimp and scallops when he did the last shop, I really thought to myself, well this is going to be awesome!
I'm not even sure if this is a helpful recipe because I didn't do a lot of measuring. Maybe it will inspire you to throw something similar together and realize you can make a healthy dinner by winging it too!
Here's (roughly) what I used:
1 head of broccoli
2 red peppers
1 clove of minced garlic
1 small chunk of ginger finely grated
1/4 cup of raspberry orange juice (it's all we had!)
1 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce (or more if you like)
1 pkg shrimp
1 pky scallops
1/4 crushed red pepper flakes
Some amount of hoisin sauce
(Sorry the details are sketchy here!)
I put all of the chopped vegetables into the frying pan with some avocado oil and let them soften. Then I added the shrimp, scallops and other ingredients. Once everything was cooked through and seafood was opaque I served it over rice.
Seriously, I'll be thinking of this meal for a long, long time. So satisfying and tasty. Hopefully one day I can recreate it!
