Spicy Mexican Shrimp AND my Week 1 Results!

This recipe was a HUGE hit with the whole family!  We will definitely making this one again.  So easy, and the shrimp have so much taste with this spice combination.  I served this with rice on the side. 

Want a tip to S T R E T C H your grain serving?  Add cauliflower rice to it!  I did a mixture of cauliflower rice and actual rice.  This dinner (with a side of roasted broccoli) was SO filling. 

21 Day Fix Spicy Mexican Shrimp

Spicy Mexican Shrimp
  • 4 red containers of raw shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 tsp. cumin
  • 1/2 tsp. paprika
  • 1/2 tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp. onion powder
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • 1/4 tsp. red cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 cup low-sodium, organic chicken broth
  • 1-1/2 tbsp. coconut oil
Mix spices together.  Coat prepared shrimp with spices and coat thoroughly. 

Heat coconut oil in a large pan.  When the oil is hot, sauté shrimp until cooked through. 

Remove cooked shrimp to a plate and cover to keep warm.  Add chicken broth, and use spatula to scrape up cooked bits from the bottom of the pan.  Once broth has reduced just slightly, add shrimp back to pan and heat.

(21 Day Fixers: This recipe makes 4 servings and each serving of shrimp counts as 1 red and 1 tsp.)
