Mustard Leek Shrimp Over Cous Cous
I love a good one pan meal. I also love a good one pan meal that is low in fat and full of good for you vegetables. This meal received my "wow babe, this is delicious" seal of approval from my husband. It has a great tang from the mustard, peas and carrots similar to one of our favorite shrimp dishes at a great restaurant, and filling protein and carbs. It comes together in just a few minutes and you will be happy to welcome this easy dish into your repertoire.
1 tablespoon butter
30-40 count medium shrimp
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons dijon mustard
5 cloves garlic, minced
2 leeks, cleaned/diced
1 large carrot, shredded
1 cup frozen peas
1 1/4 cup israeli pearled cous cous
fresh cracked pepper
2 cups water, boiled
Melt your butter, add your shrimp, salt and pepper them. Saute your shrimp for 3-4 minutes until just barely pink all the way through. Set aside. In your same skillet add you olive oil, leeks, carrots, mustard, and garlic. Salt and pepper them and saute until soft and cooked through, about 5 minutes. While your vegetables are cooking, boil 2 cups of water. When the vegetables are soft, add your peas and cous cous to the pan. Dump your water over the top them, turn off your heat source, cover, and let sit 7-8 minutes until the cous cous has plumped. Season with lavender salt and pepper and return the shrimp to the dish.
Simple, healthy, filling, and delicious. Hope you enjoy this quick one pot meal.
