Easy Asian for One - Spicy Green Beans & Shrimp

I am always looking for easy dinners to prepare on my husband's poker night. When it is just me, I want something tasty, but I don't want a big mess. This dish is so good, so easy and the clean-up is effortless thanks to my Mrs. Anderson's Baking Mat from Harold Import Company.

Easy Asian for One - Spicy Green Beans & Shrimp
by Linda

Ingredients for roasting:
A handful of frozen green beans, trimmed (I used the frozen Organic Petite Whole Green Beans from Costco)
4 extra large shrimp, peeled and cleaned
1 teaspoon sesame oil
1 slice (ring) of a blood orange

Ingredients for sauce:
Juice from a blood orange
1 teaspoon light brown sugar
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
2 teaspoon chili garlic sauce
1/4 teaspoon Aleppo chili pepper

1. Preheat oven to 350°F.

2. In large mixing bowl, toss green beans and shrimp with sesame oil.

3. Place green beans, shrimp and blood orange slice on mat in single layer.

4. Bake 20-25 minutes, until green beans look slightly wrinkled and shrimp are pink.
(I turned the shrimp half way through)

5. Using a small saucepan, add all the ingredients for the sauce.

6. Place on low heat and simmer for 5 minutes.

7. Remove green beans and shrimp from oven and place back into (cleaned) large mixing bowl.

8. Pour sauce over them and gently toss.

9. Transfer to plate, garnish with the blood orange slice.
