I made shrimp for dinner on Monday and I gotta say, it never disappoints! I remember when I first made shrimp I was pretty intimidated, I had no idea which to buy or how to go about making it. But just like anything new, you learn as you practice and I was so happy to find how easy it was during my first hand at it.
I used raw frozen shrimp, peeled & deveined, tail on. I made about 7 per serving as pictured here since it gave me about 20 gm protein.
Here’s the method: Heat a large non-stick pan on medium heat for 2-3 minutes. Add ½ tsp of butter or ghee. Add the thawed shrimp and let the shrimp cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes until opaque with a pearly pink color & bright red tails. Once you flip the shrimp to cook on the other side, add about 1 minced garlic clove to the pan as well. (I like to add the garlic to the side of the pan and sauté as the other side of the shrimp cooks since we do not need to be touching the shrimp as it cooks). Season the shrimp with red chili pepper flakes, salt & black pepper. Once done, remove from the pan and set aside.
I paired my shrimp with brown rice (I made on Sunday) + cilantro and sautéd spinach. So easyyy & so yummyyy! #ravLean - 3 hours ago
