SO GLAD at our dinner party last night we did make!
As really is a delish dish for our friend's health sake!
Picked recipe initially as never tried Grains of Paradise, TRUE!
Now I can say I accomplished another challenge too!
Thank you as was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO easy to do!
We kept the almonds whole as really does add to the dish too!

When I tagged this recipe for Veg Tag/May I forgot that asparagus is out of season now. Not to worry, I subbed broccoli. Super quick to make and we liked it spooned over jasmine rice. The grains of paradise was coarsely ground in a pestle and mortar first and I cheat with lemongrass using a lemongrass puree in a tube from the grocery store. Used standard salt, too. I got a kick out of the recipe's name! Subbed grapeseed oil for olive oil because it has a higher smoke point. The garlic was added only the last 1 minute of stir frying. Good stuff!

I had the grains of paradise on hand, but really had little idea what to do with it so was happy to stumble over this recipe. It was delicious! It had a peppery taste, but with a slight floral note for something special. We also loved the crispy almonds. Served with The Best Citrus Salmon (I Promise!).
