Shrimp Scampi

541442_242869219192107_77131930_n1 lb of non imported, U.S. fresh/wild shrimp cleaned, deveined 

Fresh or Frozen Spinach or Kale (2+ cups)

1 package of sun dried tomatoes

1 cup of organic low sodium chicken broth

1/4 cup of Chopped Onions

Sea Salt and Pepper

Basting Oil

 3/4 cup of organic extra virgin olive oil

1 tbsp of parsley

1 tsp of thyme

1 tsp of basil

4 garlic cloves minced

Prepare the basting oil and set aside about 1/4 of it.   Marinate the shrimp in the remaining basting oil so they are all coated  (the longer the better i.e. overnight).

In a sauté pan, cook the shrimp until they turn pink.  In a separate pan sauté onions, spinach and/or kale and sun dried tomatoes using the remaining basting oil .  Combine the two pans, add the chicken broth and simmer for a couple of minutes.  Salt and pepper to taste.  You can serve over spaghetti squash (see Garlic Lover’s Spaghetti Squash),  just eat it as is!

*Unfortunately imported shrimp is often farm raised and contaminated with antibiotics, chemicals and residues, thus the reason I recommend US and not farmed raised shrimp.

Avocado Deviled Eggs

guacamole-deviled-eggs-horizontalDeviled eggs are so 1970′s to me, but here is a new twist on an old recipe!  I adapted this recipe from several that are floating around on the internet.  Enjoy!

 

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 12 hard boiled eggs (click for the Perfect Hard Boiled Egg!)
  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan or Celtic Sea Salt
  • 2 Tbsp Full Fat Plain Greek Yogurt (Omit if dairy free)
  • 1 Tbsp chopped cilantro (plus garnish)
  • 1/2 tsp of ground red cayenne pepper
  • 1 Tbsp chopped green onion

Cut the hard boiled eggs in half (lengthwise) and scoop out the yolks.  Using a blender or food processor, blend about 8 of the yolks (use the remaining yolks for another recipe) for  30 seconds until smooth.  Add the  flesh of the avocados and remaining ingredients and continue to blend for another minute on low speed.  Scoop the mixture into the well of the hard boiled egg whites and garnish with additional cilantro and green onions.  For fancy looking eggs, use a cake decorating bag instead of spoon.  Enjoy!
