Jasmine Green Tea Shrimp Recipe

Jasmine Green Tea Shrimp

I was so excited to create this delicious dish, not only because I love cooking with tea, but because I used a new fabulous ingredient for this recipe, ghee. I thought this would be a delicious dish to incorporate delicious flavors of tea and ghee — a savory shrimp dish that is perfect for a lunch atop your salad or a dinner atop steamed wild rice.

Ingredients

  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 ounce loose jasmine green tea leaves
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 2 tablespoons ghee
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ounce ginger, sliced thinly
  • 1/4 cup basil, chopped finely
  • 1 pound rainbow Swiss chard, chopped roughly
  • 1 pound kale, chopped roughly
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon black sesame seeds
  • 2 tablespoons white balsamic vinegar

Directions

In a large stockpot, bring the water to a boil over high heat. Add the tea and shrimp and cook until opaque, about 4 minutes. Remove from heat, drain, and set aside to cool.

Heat the ghee in a skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic, ginger, and basil and cook for 1 minute, then add the Swiss chard and kale. Cook for another 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Remove from heat and transfer to a serving dish. Serve the shrimp on top of the greens, and season with the sesame seeds and white balsamic vinegar.
