The High-Protein Cookbook
The sweet flavor of shrimp is complemented by the complex blend known as five-spice powder, which is in turn counterbalanced by peppery watercress. A completely satisfying meal.
Makes 2 Servings
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon chopped fresh ginger
1 large garlic clove, finely chopped
¼ teaspoon five-spice powder
½ teaspoon kosher salt
½ teaspoon freshly milled black pepper
12 ounces large shrimp, peeled
4 cups watercress, rinsed and rough stems removed
Preheat the oven to 350° F. Stir together the oil, ginger, garlic, five-spice powder, salt, and pepper in a medium bowl. Toss in the shrimp, coating evenly, then cover and let stand for 10 minutes or so.
Arrange the shrimp in one layer on a baking sheet. Roast until the shrimp turns pink, 3 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the oven and set aside on a warm plate, covered, to keep warm. Place the watercress (still wet from washing) in a hot skillet and stir-fry just until wilted, about 1 minute. Divide the watercress between two dinner plates and top with hot roasted shrimp. Serve at once.
