It was another night where I wanted to use up ingredients in the fridge but still make something interesting. I always keep shrimp in the freezer because they can turn any meal into something a little more special. Tonight I decided to use up a batch of kale I had in the fridge and a yellow pepper and some feta cheese. Here goes:
This dish took about 20-30 minutes in total.
Ingredients: Serves 2-3
1 leek (white part only) sliced
1 bunch of kale chopped finely
1 pepper (any colour will do)
2 garlic cloves minced
10-15 shrimp (medium sized)
1 – 14 oz can finely diced tomatoes (you can chop about 4 roma tomatoes instead of using canned if you like)
Feta cheese for sprinkling over top
Sauté leeks and chopped pepper till soft (I add a small amount of brown sugar to help brown them a bit and to make the tomato flavour a bit less acidic.) Add chopped garlic when leeks are soft and sauté together for a minute or two. Then add tomatoes and chopped kale and mix till the kale begins to soften. Once the kale is soft add the shrimp and mix thoroughly. Cover and let it finish cooking for about 3-4 minutes.
Put in a plate and sprinkle with some feta cheese and serve.
