May 10 is National Shrimp Day so we wanted to provide an anti-inflammatory recipe that we adapted from Prevention Magazine to fit this lifestyle.  This meal can be made in 20 minutes and costs under $10.00 to feed a party of four.  We all know the benefits and many uses of cauliflower; to find out how versatile it really is, click here.

CAULIFLOWER COUSCOUS WITH SHRIMP

Servings: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 medium head cauliflower, head and stems chopped
  • 3 Tbsp olive oil
  • ½ cup dried apricots, roughly chopped
  • ¾ tsp Celtic sea salt
  • ½ tsp black pepper
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 20 large shrimp (approximately 2 lbs), peeled and deveined
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • ½ seedless cucumber, cut into pieces, optional
  • ¼ cup fresh mint, chopped

Instructions:

  1. In a food processor, pulse chopped cauliflower until finely chopped.
  2. In a large skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil on medium. Add cauliflower, apricots, ½ tsp salt and pepper.  Cook covered, stirring occasionally, about 2-3 minutes.  Once cauliflower begins to soften, transfer to a large bowl and toss with lemon juice and 1 Tbsp olive oil. Wipe skillet with a paper towel.
  3. Season shrimp with paprika and ¼ tsp salt. In the same skillet, heat 1 Tbsp olive oil on medium. Sauté shrimp in batches until opaque throughout, 1–2 minutes per side.
  4. Add cucumber and mint to cauliflower. Toss well to combine and serve with shrimp.

Notes:

  • If first run through food processor does not finely chop all cauliflower, re-pulse any large pieces separately.
  • Instead of processing the cauliflower, you can use riced cauliflower. It will not have as fine of a chop but can be cooked exactly the same way.

 

As an added bonus for #NationalShrimpDay, we are going to give you another recipe that we adapted from the July 2020 issue of Feast Magazine to fit an anti-inflammatory lifestyle.
