I actually did a live Facebook video while making this recipe. It was a lot of fun and even inspired a few people to come up with their own versions for dinner that night!

I will say that I have never cooked raw shrimp. I always use pre-cooked/frozen shrimp from Trader Joe’s. So if you opt for using raw shrimp, please cook them as needed. I can’t advise on that one.

  1. this recipe looks great as well ofcourse. I’ll put this on my plan for somewhere this week. I have a question though, why don’t you put any nutritional info anywhere? Is that becaise the recipes are low carb, low calorie anyway?

      Miranda – I do not include the nutrition data simply because online calculators are not truly accurate. It’s actually a liability to give data that is incorrect, so I stopped doing it.

    Looks like a great recipe. My preference is to use local sourced shrimp since so many chemicals are used in those from overseas.

      Ron – That’s great! Local is always best!!
