Stir Fry Shrimp Scallop Asparagus and Snow Peas

Who doesn't enjoy Asian inspired dishes?  Sometimes Asian inspired dishes can have too many calories or be just a bit salty, not to mention a bit pricey especially if you want seafood.  Here is a recipe that you can whip up in your own kitchen within 45 minutes total. 


Seafood, in general, doesn't take long to prepare. This meal has Shrimp and Scallop which are high in protein and low in fat.   Shrimp provide key nutrients. Aside from protein, shrimp provide a pretty impressive array of nutrients. Four ounces steamed shrimp contains over 100% of the daily value for selenium, over 75% for vitamin B12, over 50% for phosphorous, and over 30% for choline, copper, and iodine.


A 3.5-ounce serving of steamed sea scallops delivers about 110 calories. Scallops are very low in fat but quite high in cholesterol with about 41 milligrams per 3.5-ounce serving. A high-protein food, each serving delivers about 20 grams of protein.


Asparagus is a good source of Pantothenic Acid, Calcium, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium, and a very good source of Dietary Fiber, Protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E (Alpha Tocopherol), Vitamin K, Thiamin, Riboflavin, Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Iron, Phosphorus, Potassium, Copper and Manganese.


Snow peas are packed with vitamin A, vitamin C, iron, potassium, dietary fiber, magnesium, folic acid, and small levels of healthy fats. These pods are also very low in calories, with slightly over 1 calorie per pod.


So when I say healthy, this really is one of the best, but MOST importantly, this dish is delicious.  And just for a little extra bonus, this dish is cost effective.  You can get this dish done and feed 10 people for much less than it would cost to call out or go to an Asian restaurant.  


Give this a try, I promise you will love it.
