Shrimp and Mushroom Pita pan

Our weekly produce box provided us with a mix of things last week and I managed not only to throw together a meal without a recipe, but it was actually good. Very good if I may say so myself. Chris agrees. Having frozen shrimp on hand was key. It rounded this out and provided the protein that I’m often lacking in dinners.

Shrimp and Mushroom Pitas

  • 1 bunch young green garlic – sliced
  • 1 package sliced mushrooms
  • 1 small bunch of soft greens (spinach or the “looks like spinach but it’s not” greens I used.)
  • Salt/Pepper/Cayenne Pepper – to taste
  • Frozen shrimp – thawed and diced a little
  • Juice of 2 limes
  • Lime zest of 2 limes
  • Cilantro
  • Pita – toasted

Saute the sliced garlic in a bit of oil. Add in the mushrooms and a T. of butter. After about 4 minutes, toss in the spinach/greens and the shrimp. The shrimp I used was already cooked so just needed to heat through. Season with salt, pepper and cayenne pepper. Before serving, pour in a bit of lime juice, zest and cilantro. Serve in warm, toasted pita bread!

Notes: So good! And fast and easy and good!

Servings: 2 big dinner servings
