Creamy Sundried Tomato Shrimp

This Sundried Tomato Creamy Shrimp recipe is proof that living Whole30 and Paleo can be simply divine. I adore this recipe because it can be done in less than 20 minutes. Shrimp is always a quick protein option if you are in a hurry and need an easy and delicious meal option. This dish looks so fancy and is honestly one of my favorite recipes that I have created to date. Sometimes I get too caught up in cooking with beef and chicken that I forget about shrimp and fish. This meal is always a great way to break up your protein options during the week.

When I first started living Paleo I assumed I would have to give up all of my favorite cream sauce recipes due to cornstarch and flour being the main thickening agency. I was worried until I found arrowroot and tapioca flour which are 2 amazing substitutes for the real thing. I simply add a couple of tablespoons to chicken broth, ghee, and coconut milk and it makes a cream sauce that the whole family will love. If you are not a shrimp fan, feel free to mix up this recipe with any protein of choice. This recipe is very versatile and would be delicious with chicken, scallops, and even steak. For a complete meal, make sure to serve over freshly steamed cauliflower rice.
