Quick Shrimp with Beans Recipe
  • Drain beans and put in microwavable serving dish. Mix in sage; microwave about 2 minutes. (If not using a microwave, heat beans in a small pan with 1 tablespoon of water or bean liquid.) Pour 1 tablespoon olive oil over beans and leave in microwave to stay warm.
  • In skillet, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil. Add onions and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is soft--about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, until shrimp change color and are cooked, about 3 minutes. Lightly salt and pepper the contents of the skillet as the shrimp cook. Stir in parsley. Spoon over warm beans, add lemon wedges, if using, and serve.
