Lemon Garlic Shrimp Dinner

Nothing harder than to motivate yourself after a long day of work to make a healthy and fun dish… We’ve all been there, we wish we could prep something super quickly and that it won’t jeopardise all the efforts we made in the gym 🙂

This dish is extremely simple and quick to make!

Prep and cooking time : 20 minutes

You will need the following ingredients :

  • Shrimps (usually 5 or 6 per person is enough) – I used frozen and defrosted them during the day but you can also use fresh ones
  • 1 lemon juice + 1 full lemon
  • garlic powder
  • parsley (fresh or dried)
  • 1 cup (185g) broccolis, fresh or frozen
  • a carb of your choice : rice pilaf, whole-wheat or gluten-free pasta. this time I used Isreali couscous

Recipe :

Israeli couscous :

  • If you are doing an Isreali couscous like me, you will have to cook it in a pan with coconut or avocado oil for 5 minutes (until golden brown).
  • After 5 minutes, add 1 and 2/3 cup (400 ml) water and let it cook on medium heat for 10 minutes.
  • Let it sit while you prepare the rest…

Parsley, garlic, lemon shrimps :

  • Oil your pan with avocado, coconut or canola oil
  • Wait until it is really hot and drop your shrimps, let them sizzle 3 minutes per side approximately
  • Once they are pink, add the broccoli and let it cook for 2 minutes (I like my broccoli almost raw, I think it tastes better and is not as mushy…)
  • Add the lemon juice, the parsley and the garlic powder and let it cook for 1 more minute after you mix everything together
  • Serve the shrimps on the Israeli couscous and add a few lemon slices for taste and to make it pretty and like you know what you’re doing 😉
  • Add any salt and pepper (to taste) and enjoy while hot

Let me know your thoughts,

Love, Coco
