I am like a kid in a candy shop each time the current issue of Cooking Light arrives in my mailbox. I can’t wait to pour through the pages to see what types of recipes will inspire me to get in the kitchen and cook. Last month’s issue of Cooking Light (January/February 2012) featured Shrimp with Lemon-Saffron Rice in the “SuperFast 20 Minute Cooking” section. The dish sounded tasty, healthy and easy to make, all important criteria in my opinion.
I made this dish using local and organic ingredients whenever possible and it turned out terrific:
Dinner is truly complete in 20 minutes, even when using “real” rice. The meal includes lean protein, several vegetables, and seasonings known to have health promoting properties. A super fast meal for those nights when you need (or want) something quick but want to keep it healthy.
until next time...
