If you’re a lazy cook and like Shrimp…no problem!
During my early years we lived in Long Island, New York. My Mom would always have a fresh pot of Italian Sauce cooking on the stove every weekend. Along with the fresh aroma of the homemade sauce, we would always have some kind of seafood. We would always have shrimp and clams around. My brother and I grew to love seafood at a really early age. Today it can be hard to get clean fresh seafood wherever you live. I always try to buy my seafood local and wild. I always avoid Farm Raised at all costs. When you buy your fresh fish, you always want to cook it as soon as possible without having it sit too long in your fridge.
Shrimp is so easy to cook. You don’t have to be master chef to whip up a shrimp dish. Shrimp I believe has so much natural flavor on it’s own, adding too much to it sometimes takes away it’s real taste. Shrimp is really low in calories, high in protein and even can help fight inflammation. If you’re trying to eat lighter foods and cutting back on meat, Mister Shrimp is your guy!
The recipe below I use when I’m in a rush and craving something salty. You can even have this as a snack and not feel like you’ve over done it in your waistline. 3 ounces of shrimp provides up to 20 grams of protein per serving. That’s amazing! Now go to the store and pick up some of these friendly little guys and make yourself a quick list of what you need. Good luck!
1/2 of an Organic Avocado
3 ounces of Wild Shrimp Raw
2-4 sprays of Organic non stick Olive Oil Spray
1 teaspoon of Organic Parsley
1 cup of Organic Quinoa Shell Pasta (It’s Gluten Free)
Wash all of your raw shrimp in a strainer in the sink. Peel off tails. Dry shrimp on a paper towel. Boil a small pot of water for your Quinoa Pasta Shells. Once water is boiling, place shells in hot water. Cook until al dente. (cooked but firm to eat.) Heat a small pan on medium to high. Spray pan with Non-Stick Olive Oil Spray. Once heated, place shrimp in pan. Lower heat to medium and cook until brown. Add in your cooked pasta with the shrimp and mix. Sprinkle parsley over the top. Once cooked, place food on a nice dish. Cut your half avocado into small pieces and mash in between shrimp/pasta. If needed, spray one more olive oil spray over the top of dish to make moist. That’s it! So easy!
Note: This meal takes only 15 minutes to cook. Try and have a nice soft avocado in your dish. The avocado with the shrimp makes a nice combo.
