Slow Travel Sunday Small Bites: SSB# 11 - Ginger

This week's ingredient is Ginger (one of my favs) and it was selected by fellow Slow Traveler and Blogger, Palma, Palmabella's Passions, Thank you so much Palma for selecting this week's delicious ingredient.

I decided to go with a recipe that I found on the Internet called Honey Ginger Shrimp from All I followed the simple recipe changing it only to reduce the portions. I liked the combination of flavors (it had some kick) in this recipe and it was pretty easy and quick to make.


2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon red pepper flakes
1 teaspoon chopped garlic
1/4 yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon honey
1 pound medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
salt and pepper to taste


Heat the olive oil and red pepper flakes in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, ginger and honey; cook and stir until fragrant. Add the shrimp, and cook for 5 minutes, stirring as needed, until shrimp are pink and opaque. Serve immediately.
