Happy May the 4th y’all! Join me today on Twitch.tv/thejedimanda after 8pm EST for a full cooking stream with Star Wars themed foods and drinks. Let’s have some fun!
Here is what I’m making
½ cup apple, diced small
¼ cup radish, thinly sliced
1 avocado, mashed with salt and pepper
1 pound raw shrimp, shelled and deveined
2 tablespoons olive oil
1-1/2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Freshly ground pepper
In a small bowl stir together the chili powder, cumin, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Set aside.
In a skillet over medium-high heat, add the olive oil and shrimp.
Add the seasoning mixture and cook through until the shrimp are no longer pink, 4-5 minutes.
Place the shrimp onto a leaf of butter lettuce. Top with mashed avocado, diced apple, then sliced radish to serve.
MAI TIE FIGHTER
Saving the corniest one for last, we bring you the Mai Tie Fighter. This is a slight variation on the Mai Tai.Don’t let the bright colorful nature of this drink fool you, this Star Wars Cocktail is one of the most popular drinks. The twist in this is the garnish. Take two small slices of pineapple, and one cherry in the middle held together by a toothpick, and you’ve got yourself a mini TIE fighter.
Thank you to the Nerdista for the idea for the garnish.
- ½ oz Rum
- ½ oz Triple Sec
- ½ oz Creme de almond
- ½ oz Dark Rum
- 1 oz each sweet/sour, pineapple and orange juice
Combine ingredients, shake over ice and strain. Then garnish with the TIE FIGHTER!
