Chilli-tossed shrimp with garlic

A great dish for an outing as it can be cooked over an open fire. Remember not to fry the shrimp for too long as this can make them a bit tough.

  • 2 red chillies
  • 2-3 cloves garlic
  • 100-200 ml oil

  • juice of 1⁄2 a lemon
  • grilled or toasted bread to serve

Step by step:

  1. Defrost and peel the shrimp. Slice the chilli and garlic thinly.

  2. Heat up plenty of oil in a pan. Fry the shrimp, chilli and garlic over high heat for a minute or so until they start to colour, and add salt and pepper to taste.

  3. Remove the pan from the heat and fold in the parsley. Squeeze over a little lemon juice and serve with grilled or toasted bread.


Asparagus salad with seaweed pearls

The oat/wheat grains make this salad a bit more substantial, but you can leave them out if you like. Use your own favourite spice mix.

Serves 4 pers
Time: 30 min

Ingredients:

  • 2 bunches (250 g each) green asparagus
  • salt
  • 1 bunch spring onions
  • oil for frying
  • 100 ml grains, e.g. wheat berries or oat groats
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 2-3 tbsp rapeseed or olive oil
  • A pinch of IKEA PS spice mix with apple and fennel
  • 50-100 ml crème fraîche
  • approx. ½ jar (just over 40 g) SJÖRAPPORT seaweed pearls black

Step by step:

  1. Trim and boil the asparagus in lightly salted water for about a minute – it should still be slightly crispy. Cool in ice water to halt the cooking.

  2. Trim the spring onions and fry in oil in a pan until they colour slightly.

  3. Cook the grains as per the instructions on the pack. Drain the water and fry them until slightly crispy in a little oil in a pan.

  4. Place the asparagus and spring onions onto a large dish. Whisk together the vinegar, oil and mixed spices into a vinaigrette and drizzle it over. Sprinkle with the grains. Add dollops of crème fraîche and seaweed pearls.
