This past weekend, I visited my aunt and uncle in Washington DC and we cooked it up on Saturday night! We went to the Lotte Plaza Asian market and they had a beautiful assortment of fresh fish. We bought 2lbs of jumbo shrimp.
My aunt and I peeled the shrimp, and marinaded it with lots of yummy spices. We pan fried it with olive oil and a just a little bit of butter.
We seasoned the shrimp and marinated it in the refrigerator for an hour.
My uncle made watercress salad. It was my first time trying watercress. I’ve been reading about it recently, so I was excited to try it. It’s a superfood, and you know I looove superfoods! Watercress is rich with antioxidants and is known for its ability to help fight cancerous cells.
It was a fabulous meal and it didn’t take long to prepare. I’m adding watercress to my shopping list! Here are the ingredients we used for the meal below.
- oyster sauce
- lemon juice
- olive oil
- fish sauce
- citric acid
- garlic powder
- old bay seasoning
- salt & pepper
- teaspoon of ketchup (optional)
- butter (just a bit!)
- fresh watercress, finely chopped
- juice of 1 lemon
