  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 cup shrimp

  • In the same pan with butter, saute garlic and onion until tender. Next, add the carrots and green peas. If using canned green peas then this should be added at the end. Mix in the ham and cook for 2 minutes. Add 1/2 cup of water, cover and let simmer until carrots are almost cooked.
