Lemon-Thyme Succotash with Shrimp

Tonight's dish was Lemon-Thyme Succotash with Garlic-Parsley Shrimp from Rachael Ray 365: No Repeats and I for one, thought it was quite yummy. Laura is trying seafood, but is having trouble with shrimp due to the "pop" they make when you bite into them. She also wants to go on record saying they are the "little cockroaches of the sea." I still maintain that they are beyond compare and only made better with butter and garlic.

We both agreed that the Succotash was great and that it is worth another go. We don't agree so much on the shrimp, but that is due to the aforementioned disagreement about the awesomeness of said critter.

A fun aspect of this dish was that it was in two pans at once so we were able to work together at the stove. See more pictures on at the Flickr set.

The succotash included onions, red bell pepper, celery, corn, cannellini beans and thyme.

The shrimp were cooked with olive oil, butter and loads of garlic. They were finished with parsley and white wine.
