Mixed Vegetable Shrimp Delight

This is one of my go to dishes in any Chinese buffet. It is simple in taste but still packs a lot of flavor. It is just as simple to prepare. Just salt and pepper are the seasonings to add. The cabbage and shrimp do the rest to showcase the dish's delicious flavor. You can add any other vegetables you want for color and added flavor and nutritional value. The procedure involves practically just steaming the vegetables in the same pot all the way. The key is not overcooking the ingredients but even if you do it will still taste good. This got two thumbs up from my picky tasters. I am so happy to duplicate a favorite from the Chinese buffet and it did not take a long time either, less than twenty minutes or even shorter.

Mixed Vegetable Shrimp Delight

  • 1 tbsp oil
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 head cabbage, cored and cut into bite size pieces
  • 2 cups sliced carrots
  • 2 cups sliced celery
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 1 cup green beans, cut into two inch slices
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined either cooked or raw
  • salt and pepper to taste

Heat the oil to medium heat in a wok or large saute pan. Saute the onion and garlic till the garlic is lightly browned. 

Add the carrots, celery, cabbage and broth to the wok and cover until the steam from broth and vegetables cook the vegetables till crispy and not limp. 

Add the green beans and the shrimp if using raw during the last minutes of cooking when you see the cabbage is about cooked. Cook the shrimp till it changes pink in color if using raw shrimp. If using cooked shrimp, microwave them and add with its juice to the vegetables. Season with salt and pepper.

Serve over rice. Awesome.
