Shrimp & Cabbage Stir Fry

Oooops. I forgot to take something out of the freezer, and I had NO idea what to do for dinner! Ever have one of those nights? I used another great shopping staple from Costco... frozen shrimp! It is super quick to thaw and doesn't take long to cook. This was made up on-the-spot, with ingredients I had on hand (lots of miscellaneous veggies). I am happy to report that is was VERY tasty. Hope you enjoy our last minute, unplanned creation! Paleo meals CAN most definitely accommodate our busy lives. It doesn't hurt to keep some easily thawed items in the freezer for emergencies! :-)
Now, I'm off to bed... a bit sore from today's Turkish Get-Ups!

1 shallot, minced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 T olive oil
1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped
2 C mushrooms, sliced
1/2 cup cashews, raw, unsalted
1/2 C fresh Italian parsley, chopped
~1 lb. shrimp
1 small head cabbage, chopped
1/4 tsp. red chile flakes
2 T coconut aminos ("Coconut Secret" soy sauce substitute)
1 tsp. wasabi
Pinch sea salt

Heat oil in large skillet. Saute garlic and shallots. Add peppers, mushrooms, cashews and Italian parsley. When mixture looks thoroughly sauteed (about 5 minutes) remove to a separate dish and add a little more olive oil to skillet. Saute shrimp and cook until just no longer pink, and remove. (I do not like over-cooked shrimp... too rubbery!). Now add cabbage to skillet (maybe a tad more olive oil). Let the cabbage cook down a bit (about 8 minutes). While that's cooking combine wasabi, chili flakes, sea salt and coconut aminos. Now add all ingredients back to the cabbage saute. Mix well, making sure everything is thoroughly heated and well blended. Serve up, and enjoy!
