Trinidad Shrimp Stew with Ginger Rice
(Makes 2 Servings)

10 oz shelled & deveined large shrimp                                                             ½ cup thinly sliced onion
2 medium tomatoes, blanched, peeled, seeded, & chopped                         1 garlic clove, minced
1 Tbsp each of chopped chives and lime juice                                                ¼ tsp salt, divided
1 green chili pepper, seeded and chopped                                                      ⅛ tsp ground thyme
⅛ tsp curry powder                                                                                           ¼ tsp ground ginger
dash of pepper                                                                                                  ½ cup water

In a medium glass or stainless steel bowl, combine shrimp, tomato, onion, chives, lime juice, garlic, chili pepper, ⅛ tsp salt, and the thyme and pepper.  Stir to combine and let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes.  In a small saucepan, combine rice, water, ginger, curry powder, and remaining ⅛ tsp of salt and bring to a boil.  Reduce heat to low, cover, and let simmer until rice is tender -- 15 to 20 minutes.  In a 10-inch nonstick skillet, combine oil and butter and heat until butter is bubbly and hot; pour shrimp and marinade mixture into skillet, cover and let cook over high heat until the shrimp turns pink (about 2 minutes).
To serve, combine gingered rice and shrimp together in a serving bowl with a few shrimp showing on top.

A couple of substitutions ... lemon for Lime, cilantro for chives and white fish for prawns.
Tasted really good
Needs more rice to be a main course ... probably double!
Planning to do it again!
