Healthy Crispy Potatoes and Stir Fried Shrimp - what a fun dinner.

Fun, fun fun.  That is what I thought when the Idaho Potato Commission asked for Poutine recipes for this week’s Sunday Supper.  Poutine is a Canadian dish with French fries topped with cheese curds and gravy.  The Idaho Potato Commission challenged us to come up with something new.  Of course, there was a twist.  You could not use French fries.  What?  Oh, this was a good one.  Time to put on my thinking cap.  Potatoes are a fabulous choice for dinner.  They have about 110 calories for a small potato with 2 grams of fiber.  Additionally they have no saturated fat  and are loaded with Vitamin C and potassium.  That makes them perfect for a healthy meal.

Healthy Crispy Potato and Shrimp Poutine with Stir Fry Vegetables - what a fun dinner.

My inspiration came from one of my favorite Dim Sum dishes, a fried shredded taro cake with shrimp in the middle. I have been wanting to make a healthier version forever.  First I thought of substituting the taro for shredded Idaho® potatoes and chopping up some shrimp into the “potato cake”.  Next I was  going to cut them into logs to look like French fries. While I liked the idea, something was missing.

Then I got a hankering for crispy noodles with stir fried vegetables.  I love the contrast of the deep-fried noodles with the saucy stir fry.  Since I try not to deep fry food anymore, I needed a substitute.  Bingo!  That was exactly what I needed.  I could combine the two ideas to make this Crispy Potatoes Shrimp Poutine with Stir Fry Vegetables.  It’s perfect.  I rarely have the proper Chinese noodles in my pantry, but I always have Idaho® potatoes on hand.  Idaho® potatoes have to be the most versatile food, plus they are inexpensive. They make a wonderful substitution for noodles.

I just love food challenges like this.  It makes me think of being on a Food Network show.  What poutine recipe would you make?  You can use any type of Idaho® potato except French fries.  My fellow Sunday Supper members have come up with some fantastic ideas, too.  I cannot forget to tell you about a truly exciting part.  There is a contest! Help us celebrate National Sunday Supper Month by entering the Idaho® Potato Let’s Poutine contest.  Prizes include $500, $200 and $100, plus a ticket for each winner to the Food Wine Conference 2016 in Orlando, FL.  All the rules and conditions for entry can be found on our Sunday Supper Movement website here.

      Hi Emily, I am not sure the chicken would work as part of the potato cake but you could add it to the stir fry.
  15. I love your transformations!
