Sautéed Courgettes, Spinach and Mushrooms

With a lot of leftover courgettes from my colleagues’ garden we have another opportunity to do a freestyle recipe and the easiest way to do this by doing a stir fry. I know, stir fry is so common but for our recipe today it will be a combination of vegetables and other flavours that I haven’t tried before and those ingredients are spinach, mushrooms, anchovies and shrimps.

Like most stir fries, this is quite simple, in fact since most of the ingredients are vegetables, it is cooked really fast, meaning you can enjoy this delicious dish in matter of minutes. It’s a dish with a lot of contrasting flavours and taste, crunchy courgettes, soft and earthy mushrooms, slimy spinach, pungent and salty anchovies plus a delicate shrimp.

  2. Looks like a perfect way to use the courgettes, Raymund. I like the addition of a few shrimp, but I think the ingredient that really packs the flavor here is the anchovy! Very nice.
