Todays meal was inspired by my Fitfam Juliet. She sent me a picture of a dish that Ayesha Curry made. She asked me to recreate it, I gladly accepted. I decided to recreate the dish and make it #fitfam approved. From replacing the chow mein noodles with 100% whole wheat pasta and baking the plantain instead of frying, Fitfam would be proud Below is a picture of Ayesha’s Dish.
So here goes my take:
Lite Soy Sauce
1/2 green pepper
1/2 red bell pepper
1 lb of shrimps
1-2 Lobster tools
1/2 head of cabbage
1 package of whole grain linguini
1 ripe plaintain
First, cook your pasta for about 7-10 minutes until soft, be careful not to over cook.
Preheat your oven to 400 degrees .Coat a baking sheet with oil or nonstick oil spray. Cut your plantain in diagonal slices about 1/2 inch thick. Season your plaintain with salt and black pepper. Place on baking sheet and bake for 7 minutes and flip.
Continue to back for another 7 minutes on the other side. Be carful to watch the color, making sure it doesn’t burn. Place aside
Prep (chop) all your veggies, cabbage, peppers and onions and set aside
Jerk Shrimp and Lobster
Wash and dry your seafood. Season with jerk seasoning, salt, black pepper, ginger and cayenne pepper. In a pan heat up 2 tbsp of oil oil, 1/2 chopped onion, and 2 habanero chopped. for about 2 minutes. Next add in 1 tbsp of minced garlic. Sear for 1 more minute. Add in lobster (shell up) and shrimp. Cook on one side for 5 minutes. Before flipping add in 1 tbsp of butter. Squeeze 1/2 of lemon on top of the seafood . Continue to cook for 5 more minutes until done.(shell turned pink). Set aside
In a pan heat up 3 tbsp of olive oil. Add cabbage, 1/2 chopped onion, bell peppers, and garlic . Stir fry for about 3-4 minutes on medium high heat. Next add in 1/3 cup of Lite soy sauce and 1/4 of oyster sauce.
Mix well. Next add in pasta, and stir constantly to blend everything . Continue to stir fry for about 2-3 minutes, top it off with fresh chopped Parsley and cayenne pepper (optional)
Now its time to plate !!
