Thai Shrimp and Cabbage

"This spicy shrimp is absolutely wonderful served over shredded cabbage. When I'm in a hurry, I use packaged coleslaw mix instead," notes Beth Malchiodi of Brooklyn, New York. "It's a welcome change from rice."- Beth Malchiodi, Brooklyn, New York

Another tasty recipe from my Taste of Home Recipe Book.

1 cup shredded cabbage
3 teaspoons canola oil, divided
1 slice onion, halved
1 garlic clove, minced
8 uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon soy sauce
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes

Directions: In a small skillet, stir-fry the cabbage in 1 teaspoon oil for 2 minutes or until tender. Remove and keep warm. In the same skillet, stir-fry onion and garlic in remaining oil until tender. Add the shrimp, water and soy sauce; stir-fry for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp turn pink. Stir in cilantro and pepper flakes. Serve with cabbage. Yield: 1 serving.
