½ teaspoon ground ginger.
½ teaspoon kosher salt or sea salt.

Crohn’s Friendly Shrimp Recipe and Asparagus Cooking Instructions
Prepare the rice, cook in a rice cooker or per directions on the package.
Heat a large skillet on medium/high heat, add 1+ tablespoon olive oil and let it get hot.
Blend all the spices together in a small bowl or cup to create a Crohn’s friendly seasoning mix that is anti-inflammatory.
Place a single layer of shrimp in the skillet. Sprinkle some of the Crohn’s friendly spice mix and cook the shrimp each side for about 2 minutes (If using frozen/thawed cooked shrimp, the process is the same but cook just until hot).
When the Crohn’s friendly shrimp is cooked through (they turn white and slightly pink on the tail), remove from the skillet.
In the same hot skillet, add a little more olive oil (maybe 1 teaspoon), let it get hot and then add the parsley leaves. Let them sizzle for about a minute but don’t burn.
Add the cooked rice to the skillet and blend all until hot.
Heat a skillet over medium heat. Add 2 teaspoons of olive oil and layer the asparagus in.
Cook until you can poke the asparagus with a fork and the consistency is tender.
Add the yellow peppers now, sprinkle some of the seasoning mix.
Cook just a minute more until the peppers are tender. You will know when the peppers are tender by poking them with a fork.
Serve your healthy anti-inflammatory veggies with the shrimp and parsley rice for a delicious Crohn’s friendly recipe that will help you avoid flares.

Preparing the veggies for our Crohn’s shrimp recipe:
Asparagus can be cooked as little or as much as you prefer, and it can come in thick tender spears, or thin spindly spears, or anywhere in-between. When thick, it tends to be more tender by nature, and when thin and spindly, it can tend to be a bit fibrous. So, when faced with thin, you will want to cook it a little slower and lower to make it more tender.
