There will always be times when you are not prepared for a meal and this was one of those times when I realized I had not taken anything out for lunch and there was no easy protein in my fridge to combine with something else. (I like to try and include a good source of protein with every meal, because it keeps me well satiated for longer). So I had a quick look in my freezer and the first thing that grabbed my eye was some frozen raw shrimp I had picked up from Costco. I quickly defrosted by running under some cold water and while that was happening chopped up some veg and cooked some rice. The result was a quick delicious and filling lunch. I could of easily of grabbed for something naughty and blown the whole day, but with a little thought and throwing together of some ingredients you can quickly make meals that are on plan, filling and delicious.

Slimming Eats Recipe
Yummy sticky sweet skewers of honey garlic shrimp mmmmmmmm
If you want to keep this paleo then serve this up with my yummy Oven Roasted Cauliflower Rice as well as some stir fried veggies of your choice.
- 400g (14oz) of raw shrimp, shelled
- 2 tablespoons of honey
- ¼ cup (60ml) of all purpose soy sauce (or coconut aminos)
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger
- fresh chopped coriander
- black pepper
- low calorie spray
- Soak some wooden skewers in water for a few hours (this will prevent them from burning)
- Skewer the shrimp onto the wooden skewers, I added about 5 per skewer.
- Whisk the honey, soy sauce, garlic, ginger and black pepper together in a bowl
- Heat a frying pan over a medium high heat, spray with oil.
- Add the shrimps skewers and pour in the sauce
- After a couple of minutes turn over the skewers to cook the other side and then use a brush as the sauce starts to thicken, brush over the top with the sauce.
- Sprinkle with fresh chopped coriander.
- Once cooked served with your choice of sides (I served with stir fried carrots, zucchini and onion and some steamed rice)
