I love to try new flavors and because incorporating tea into cooking and baking is a big food trend, I had to try it out myself… And it worked for me!
The broth infused with green tea gets a subtle herbal flavor and wonderfully blends with the rest of the ingredients. You’ll fall in love!
- 12 shrimps
- 1/2 fennel
- 4 spring onions
- 2 teaspoons of green tea
- 1 L vegetable broth
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- 2 teaspoons grated ginger
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1 chilli
- 4 tablespoons chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons peanut oil
- salt and white pepper
Peel the shrimps, leaving the tail on. Cut the zucchini lengthwise in half and cut into thin slices using a peeler, then into long strips. Peel the carrots and cut lengthwise in half, then cut into thin slices using a peeler. Cut the fennel into thin slices.
Bring the broth to a boil, place the tea in a paper filter and put it into the broth. Let stand for 5 minutes.
Heat the wok, add oil and add the garlic with ginger. Fry for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the vegetables and shrimps. Fry for a minute, stirring constantly. Then pour the tea broth and let cook for 5 minutes. Season with chili pepper, salt and pepper.
Serve in bowls and garnish with chopped spring onions and cilantro. Enjoy!
