Shrimp with Butter Beans

Shrimp with Butter Beans

 Tonight we tried an experiment, having seen a picture somewhere of a dish made with shrimp and white beans. It came out really tasty! We served it with wild rice & currants



3/4 lb raw shrimp, shelled
2 cans Goya Butter Beans
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh Chives
1/4 cup fresh Oregano, diced
5 garlic cloves
1/4 tsp anchovy paste
1/4 tsp cardamom seeds

 Drain and rinse beans; set aside.

Thin-slice the garlic cloves, cut up the chives and oregano. Keep the garlic separate. Rinse the shrimp and set it aside.

 Heat the olive oil in a non-stick pan with at least 2 quart capacity (we used a wok.) Add garlic. As garlic begins to brown (less than a minute) add the shrimp. As the shrimp begins to lose its translucence and firm up, add the beans, chives, oregano, anchovy paste and water. Stir and heat up; just as the sauce comes to a boil, turn off the heat and cover. Total cooking time is less than 5 minutes. Serve!
