Super easy dinner idea for you! You need this garlicky shrimp with broccoli rabe in your life. This is one of my no-recipe recipes.
Local shrimp … do you know where your shrimp comes from?
We got our hands on an obscene amount of local shrimp from Catch On Seafood Company in the spring. YUM. I prepped a bunch to eat right away, but I also froze some so we could enjoy a little taste of the Carolina shore later in the year.
For this garlicky shrimp recipe, I used about 3 pounds of our local shrimp and sautéed tons of garlic (like 10 cloves!) in olive oil and then added the shrimp in two batches. You don’t want to crowd your pan when you cook your shrimp and you want your shrimp to be dry when you put it in the pan. Also, one more tip … only turn the shrimp once. Resist the urge to flip them around a couple of times. Once is enough. You don’t want overcooked, tough shrimp. Shrimp cook quickly!
After the shrimp was cooked, I added one small crown of broccoli and one bunch of broccoli rabe (well chopped). I drizzled more olive oil over the veggies and added a little more salt. I wanted the veggies bright green and just a little wilted.
I added the shrimp back in with broccoli, added some lemon juice and a handful of chopped parsley and then served it over CAULIFLOWER rice.
For the cauliflower rice, I bought cauliflower that was already finely chopped (thank you, Harris Teeter!). I sautéed garlic and shallots in olive oil and then added the cauliflower. Cover and cook for about 6-8 minutes.
Super easy Whole30, gluten free, dairy free, grain free meal! No leftovers!
