Food: Dinner Tonight – Garlic Shrimp with Honey Drizzle

Although I am following a no-carb no sugar diet, I have to consider the family when preparing dinner – Meaning to clarify – a dish where I can leave out the carbs and enjoy the key parts of the meal to feed my dietary needs. Like this amazing recipe I found here:

In this case I simply eat the shrimp and avocado, and pass up on the rice, beans and just maybe have two slices of the plantain or maybe not (I need to be good)

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 pound raw tail on shrimp
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 4-6 cloves garlic finely minced or grated (I like using around 4)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh grated ginger
  • 2 jalapenos seeded + chopped
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (use less for less heat maybe 1/4-1/2 teaspoon)
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro chopped
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 1/4 cup canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons fresh basil chopped + more fore serving
  • kosher salt + pepper
  • steamed white rice + black beans + sliced avocado for serving

FRIED PLANTAINS
