With a simple mojo sauce on hand, this delightful mojo shrimp with vegetables can be made in a Fusion Cooker in just 15 minutes. It’s the best kind of healthy one-pot dump meal ever!

Last week, Han went to New York City for work. I was alone at home and realized that how much I didn’t feel like cooking.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s interesting to me that how much we’d like to cook for our loved ones and how little we actually cook for ourselves. Think about it. All the cooking you do is more for your family rather than for yourself, right? I am not complaining. I think cooking makes us a better person. It’s just that cooking for one is really hard because you kind of lose the motivations to cook knowing that you’ll be eating alone and have to clean up afterwards.

Therefore, on those days that Han’s not around, I don’t even want to turn on the stove, or preheat the oven, and deal with dirty dishes. But what am I going to eat if I don’t cook?

I opened my fridge and went through everything I had. Closed it. You know sometimes you stand in front of your closet that’s full of clothes but you still feel that you have nothing to wear? That’s a similar feeling.

I wandered around the kitchen and started debating between take-outs and instant noodles but felt like it’s not really healthy. So I opened my fridge again. On the top shelf, I saw that I had some homemade mojo sauce left. In the vegetable section, there were 2 broccoli heads and an orange bell pepper. Then I recalled that I had got some frozen shrimp in the freezer. Then this idea hit me.

What if I throw the vegetables and shrimp in a Fusion Cooker with the mojo sauce? I had made a shrimp asparagus recipe in the Fusion Cooker before and it only took me 15 minutes. So I assumed that 15 minutes was enough for this mojo shrimp idea.

I literally dumped everything in the waterless pot of the Fusion Cooker and set the cooking level at 5 for 15 minutes. The whole thing was fabulously done! I was very happy with the fact that I didn’t go for take-outs or instant noodles. Instead, I totally took care of myself by eating a super healthy low-carb dinner that has enough protein, vitamins, and tons of flavor. The best part was that I got only one pot to wash.

Fusion Cooker 15-Min Mojo Shrimp with Vegetables (Stove Method Recipe Included)

This mojo shrimp recipe can also be made in other methods. For example, you can cook the shrimp on the stove and roast the vegetables in the oven. You can also wait until the shrimp is cooked, then sauté the vegetables in the same pan on the stove. However, neither cooking methods are going to cook this recipe as fast or as convenient as the Fusion Cooker.

If you are currently facing the challenge of cooking for one, I hope you find my experience helpful. If you don’t have a Fusion Cooker yet, you can order one here. Or you can make this recipe on the stove. I’ve included the instructions in the recipe below. As always, happy cooking!

  • Cook Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Time: 20 minutes
  • Yield: 2
  • Category: One-Dish Meal, Main, Gluten Free, Low Carb, Fusion Cooker
  • Method: Fusion Cooker
  • Cuisine: American

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup mojo sauce, divided
  • 10 ounces large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 pound broccoli, stems removed and cut into florets
  • 1 bell pepper, chopped
  • 1/4 cup onion, roughly chopped
  • Cilantro leaves for garnishing

Instructions

  1. Marinate shrimp in 1/4 cup mojo sauce for at least 5 minutes.
  2. In the meantime, prepare vegetables and arrange in the waterless pot of a Fusion Cooker.
  3. Pour the other 1/4 cup mojo sauce over the veggies and place the marinated shrimp on top.
  4. Cover with the metal lid. Select “Cook” mode and set the cooking level for 5 for 15 minutes.
  5. Dish. Garnish with cilantro and serve.

Notes

Stove method: Marinate the shrimp in 1/4 cup mojo sauce and let it stand for 5 minutes. Add the remaining mojo sauce to a pan and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes to let the flavors develop. Place the shrimp to the simmering sauce and cook, turning once, until opaque, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the shrimp on a serving plate, season to taste with salt and pepper.

As for the vegetables, you can either sauté them in the same pan with the remaining sauce left in the pan or season the vegetables with salt, pepper and some olive oil and toss to coat. Spread the vegetables in an even layer on a sheet pan. Roast them until lightly browned and tender at 450°F, about 20 to 22 minutes.
Serve the shrimp on top of the vegetables. Garnish with cilantro leaves.

  1. I have only heard amazing things about these cookers. I love the meal idea especially because I’m looking for more ways to incorporate fish and seafood into my diet.

  2. Would the temp and time setting need to be adjusted if I doubled the quantities for your Mojo Shrimp with vegetables in order to make it for two people? Just got my fusion cooker and am excited to start working with it.
    Thank you,
    Doug
