Giveaway alert!! With the holidays fast approaching, we all know how busy this time of the year gets. From holiday shopping to hosting and cooking for your friends and family, it’s nonstop festive fun. The good news is, I’ve partnered with All-Clad Canada for #12daysofAllCllad for an #AllCladGiveaway of this gorgeous D5 Polished Dutch Oven! With this Dutch oven, cooking my favorite holiday recipes were a breeze, like this Coconut Ginger Shrimp & Sweet Potato Stew for example. That right guys, I was winning in the kitchen with this recipe, #humblebragging…. just kidding, but this D5 Polished Dutch Oven would be the perfect holiday gift to add to your kitchen!
The key ingredient in this hearty recipe was the use of ginger. I cannot even begin to list how many ginger bread cookies I’ve baked or my many failed attempts to put together a ginger bread house. So, although ginger is a very popular spice used in baked dessert recipes during the holidays, you don’t find many savory recipes that incorporate it. That’s why I decided to go the savory route with this ginger shrimp and potato stew. That way, you can still enjoy the festive flavors of the holidays at lunch or dinner time!
A great tip for preparing this recipe for a holiday dinner is to cook it ahead of time. Because the recipe has several steps, prepping it too close to dinner time might have a lot of hungry and not so happy faces waiting. The good thing about the D5 Polished Dutch Oven is that is has excellent heat retention, which would keep your stews or any other recipes warm and ready to serve for at least a couple of hours. Isn’t that amazing!?
This stew also yields about 20 servings. So whether you’re hosting a small dinner for your family, or for your several cousins twice removed, this coconut ginger shrimp and sweet potato stew would make a hearty wholesome holiday dinner your loved ones would devour.
