Jasmine Green Tea Shrimp and Tillen Farms Giveaway

by Amie on November 30, 2010

I was so excited to create this delicious dish, not only because I love cooking with green tea, but I used a new fabulous ingredient for this recipe, ghee.  I have entered the Pure Indian Foods Ghee Recipe Contest and thought this would be a delicious dish to incorporate delicious flavors of tea and ghee in a savory shrimp dish that is perfect for a lunch atop your salad or a dinner atop steamed wild rice.

Jasmine Green Tea Shrimp


  • 2 quarts water
  • 1 ounce jasmine green loose tea leaves
  • 1 lbs. large shrimp, peeled and devined
  • 2 Tbsp. Pure Indian Foods Ghee
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 ounce fresh ginger, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh basil, finely chopped
  • 1 lb. fresh Rainbow Swiss chard, roughly chopped
  • 1 lb. fresh kale, roughly chopped
  • Sea salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1 Tbsp. black sesame seeds
  • 2 Tbsp. white balsamic vinegar


  1. In a large stockpot, bring water to a boil.  Add tea and shrimp; cook for 4 minutes or until shrimp are opague.
  2. Remove from heat; set aside to cool.
  3. In a skillet over medium heat, add Pure Indian Foods Ghee, garlic, ginger and basil.  Cook for 1 minute; add Swiss Chard and kale; cook for 3 minutes.
  4. Remove from heat; transfer to a serving dish.  Serve shrimp atop greens, sprinkle with sesame seeds and a drizzle of white balsamic vinegar.
  5. Enjoy!

And now for my Tillen Farms VIP Kit Giveaway.

I am so excited to announce this giveaway as I have had the pleasure of working with this amazing company, whose products are out-of-this-world incredible and deliciously perfect for the palate.

Their products range from a rainbow of white asparagus, green beens, carrots, cherries and green asparagus…some with a hint of natural sweetness and others with a true kick.

To Enter:

Leave a comment on this post telling me which Tillen Farms product you’d like to try.  I am in love with the Tillen Farms products; they are fresh, crisp and delicious.  I’ve noted them on my ‘Favorites’ Page because they truly are the only brand of pickled vegetables that I purchase because of their fresh, crisp taste.  Believe me, they are far from the odinary pickled vegetable…My favorite is the white asparagus…so delicious.

I will be picking a winner on Thursday, December the 2nd at 5PM EST.

Good Luck!

Also, I wanted to tell all of you about this Winter Expedition hosted by Good Commons

This sounds like a dream boat to me…a lil’ skiing, private chef, massage, yoga…

Paradise on the East Coast?

I think so…

I’d love to try the white asparagus, and would top it on my salads. Just like the French! :)

I’ve never tried ghee, but I’ve recently tried some indian dishes and I’ve liked them so far. Where can you get ghee?

Oh and for the giveaway, asparagus all the way!


The Healthy Apple December 1, 2010 at 4:43 pm

Thanks so much! You can purchase ghee at Whole Foods Market and Health Food Stores…let me know if you have trouble finding it!
Have a great night.
