This vibrantly colored combo is a bit spicy and a bit sweet from just a touch of honey and the natural sweetness of carrots.
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cardamom powder
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
4 tablespoons medium carrots, peeled and thinly bias-sliced
2 tablespoons chopped green onion
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon honey
1/2 teaspoon finely shredded lime peel
Place a steamer basket in a saucepan. Add water to just below the bottom of the basket. Bring water to boiling. Add carrots to steamer basket. Cover and reduce heat. Steam for 3 minutes. Add shrimp. Cover and steam for 3 to 5 minutes more or until shrimp are opaque and carrots are tender.
Transfer shrimp and carrots to a serving platter. Sprinkle with green onion. In a small bowl combine lime juice and honey. Drizzle over shrimp and carrots. Sprinkle with lime peel.
