Spring Recipe Savvy: Shrimp, Fennel & Asparagus With Brown Rice

16 oz wild shrimp-if frozen put in a bowl of cold water and keep water running over them for 3-5 minutes
1 tbsp of cilantro
3 cloves of garlic-finely chopped
2 tbsp olive oil
Pepper & kale salt to season

Bunch of asparagus-chopped
1 fennel chopped finely
3 cups of brown rice-short grain sushi, rice from Wholefoods in the help-yourself-containers are our favorite
2 tsp vegetable bouillon-Superior Touch-Better than bouillon is excellent
1/2 tsp Spike gourmet natural seasoning
Pepper & kale salt to season

1. Place shrimp (peeled), cilantro, garlic, olive oil and seasoning in a covered container/bowl for 15 minutes in the fridge to marinate.
2. Put brown rice, veg bouillon and approx 3 times as much water over them and cook covered on medium heat until water is absorbed-A good measure for correct water level is to the first line on index finger at rice level:)
3. Heat wok on medium high heat for a couple of minutes and then add marinated shrimp and marinade. Cook for approx 5 minutes turning shrimp as to cook both sides.
4. Add asparagus, fennel, Spike and seasonings and cook for further 5 minutes.

Serve immediately with brown rice and enjoy!
