I have a soft spot for really easy dinners that also are really healthy and loaded with flavor. Like, a really soft spot. And healthy dinners don’t get much easier, healthier, or flavorful than Zesty Lime Shrimp with Simple Cauliflower Rice.
1tablespooncooking fat(I use avocado oil or ghee, but use whatever you prefer that has a high smoke point)
1headcauliflower (about 5 cups), washed a roughly chopped
1poundraw shrimp, peeled and deveined
1/4teaspoon black pepper
2tablespoon lime juice
1/2tablespoon cooking fat (again, I use avocado oil or ghee, but use whatever you prefer that has a high smoke point)
For Cauliflower Rice
Put the roughly chopped cauliflower in a food processor. Pulse until the cauliflower is well chopped and resembles a rice texture. It is best to do this in two batches, so that the cauliflower gets evenly “riced”.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat and add the cooking fat. Once the cooking fat is hot, add the riced cauliflower to the skillet.
Stirring occasionally, cook for 5-7 minutes or until the cauliflower starts turning golden brown on the edges. Remove heat.
Season the shrimp with cumin salt, and black pepper.
Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and add cooking fat. Once fat is hot, add the shrimp in a single layer to the skillet.
Stir and cook until shrimp is about half way cooked through, about 3 minutes. Add the lime juice to the pan and continue cooking until shrimp is pink all the way through, about 3 more minutes.
Serve over warm cauliflower rice and enjoy immediately.
If you are not a fan of rice, just replace it with your favorite side. This zesty lime shrimp will still taste as good!
