As Seen on SnapChat: Cooking with Britt

IMG_4960If you’re a regular snapper you know that almost EVERYONE turns into a master chef when they’re cooking on SnapChat. The playlist is usually either super sexy or super ratchet and impressive plating is a must – major keys in the production LOL. (seriously) But I have to admit it is one of my guilty pleasures too. So here we are, letting my snap live on on my blog forever.

On the Menu:

Honey Shrimp

Sriracha Green Beans

  4. Toss green beans around so that they are coated with the sauce mixture.

  6. Remove from heat and add a pinch of salt and pepper over green beans.

The last step is to boil some rice. I chose Jasmine rice but you could use whatever rice you prefer! Once finished, drain and get crafty while preparing your plate. I packed the rice into a small bowl, placed a plate on top of the bow, and then flipped the plate & bowl over to get a perfect rice pile. Add the green beans and shrimp to your plate and enjoy!

Here are a few extra pictures!

 

If you try this recipe let me know your thoughts in the comments section below! I thought the honey shrimp and sriracha paired really well together but I’m curious to know what you guys think!! Oh, and if you post it on IG or Twitter, tag my page and #cookingwithBritt.

PS. In case you were wondering, I was listening to Tank’s Sex Love & Pain II while cooking this meal. #sexyAF 🙂
