Garlic Shrimp on Ginger Scallion Rice for Sunday Lunch

Garlic Shrimp on Ginger Scallion Rice for Sunday Lunch

Slow Eats, FAST, Sunday Lunch/Daily Dinners

This was originally going to be a Slow Eats, FAST post.  And in truth, we had this for dinner on a Thursday, not for lunch on a Sunday.  Yet despite the fact that both Howard and I were happily content with this seemingly small bowl of steamed rice topped with prawns/shrimp, I became insurmountably concerned that many of you wouldn’t consider this to be a complete dinner.

And so I acquiesced to my concerns and relegated this filling, aromatic and deliciously satisfying dinner to lunch status.  I’ll continue to wrestle with this decision cop-out while the rest of you move on to the next page, and the quick story about how this dish came together.


I apologize for any inconvenience.

    Mixing is a good compromise! While I want to say I go brown rice b/c it’s healthier, white rice still is the comfort food. I love the ginger scallion! Can I stop by??

    Looks delicious. The rices seems to be extremely fluffy.

      Thanks Matthew — the ginger-scallion sauce makes it really flavourful too!

    Thank you Theresa – We will be having that for dinner TONIGHT and perhaps tomorrow too ! Maybe everyday as long as my stash of shrimp holds out :)

    Lunch or dinner, it looks delicious. Flavourful and healthy, and filling too. And a beautiful picture to accompany it!

    I love that you wound with the biggest bowl of aromatics ever! Heavenly and can be added everywhere. I also think – yes, this is so dinner. We switched to brown rice a few years ago – but there are some dishes that beg for white. I like the compromise.

    Wow. Theresa, you’ve really outdone yourself this time. LOL. This looks so delicious, I want to jump through my computer and into that big bowl of ultra-yum! Yes, that ginger-scallion sauce looks TO DIE FOR. I want to slather myself in it. :-p I know I’m weird. But, seriously, that looks so good. Can you come over with some? Thanks. :-p
