One of the many kinds of beans that I love since I was a kid is the Lima bean. My parents used to grow this veggies at our backyard and we would pick them and open it up to get the seeds, it was a fun memory. My Mom would cook this coconut mil with fish and it was always a hit in our kitchen table for us kids. Even though I can only have frozen lima beans here, I still buy them because I like them and it reminds me of home. Below is a simple recipe.
1 bag of frozen lima beans
1 can of coconut milk
1/2 lb of frozen shrimp
1 thumb size ginger, crushed
2 sticks of lemon gass
1 onion, diced
salt and pepper to taste
2 jalapeños, diced (optional)
- Put the coconut milk in a pan and salt, onion, ginger, and lemon grass. Let it boil, stirring occasionally.
- Add the lima beans and let it cook for 7-10 minutes in a medium high heat.
- Add the shrimp and let it cook for another 5 minutes.
- Add black pepper and jalapeño.
Serve with steamed rice.
