Bang Bang Shrimp

Jumbo shrimp drenched with bang bang sauce and served over cauliflower rice.

  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 4 people 1x

Ingredients

Scale
  • 20 jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 cup mayo (whole 30 approved (see instagram for my recipe))
  • 2 tbsp hot Sauce (Franks)
  • 2 tsp sriracha (for whole 30 either buy approved or make your own)
  • salt and pepper (to taste)
  • 1 bag cauliflower pearls (or cauliflower rice )

Instructions

  1. Thaw your shrimp in a bowl of water. I usually let mine sit for 15- 20 minutes.
  2. While your shrimp is thawing, go ahead and prep your bang bang sauce. How you make your sauce will depend on your dietary needs. Due to my families paleo lifestyle, I usually make my own. If you would like my recipe, it is located on my instagram page.
    Add 1/2 cup mayo to a bowl and simply add 2 tbsp of Frank’s hot sauce and 2 tsp of sriracha sauce ( for whole 30 you will need to make your own version). Simply mix together and sit to the side.
  3. Next, heat up your cast iron skillet with olive oil and add in your jumbo shrimp. Make sure to cook your shrimp on a lower heat. I find that if I cook at a higher temp the shrimp will have a rubbery texture. It is important to flip your shrimp so it cooks evenly.
  4. After you get the shrimp in the skillet, heat up another pan and add in your cauli pearls. I find my pearls at Sams Club. Cook your rice until tender. I usually season with a little salt and pepper to taste while cooking.
  5. Once your rice is done go ahead and add your bang bang sauce to your shrimp. Let the sauce and shrimp simmer another 3 minutes until combined.
  6. Finally, add your cauliflower pearls to a plate or bowl and top with your shrimp and sauce. Top with green onions and enjoy!

    Delish!! Realized at the last minute I didn’t have sriracha, so I used a little bit of whole 30 ketchup instead.

✨We all need quick meals and I’m obsessed with these  English Muffin Tuna Melts. They can be on the dinner table in under 15 minutes and can be tailored to be gluten and dairy free. 

 ✨ENGLISH MUFFIN TUNA MELTS✨
*3 English muffins split in half (gluten-free or regular)
*Butter (to toast muffins) optional
*6 slices Colby Jack cheese or cheese of choice (you can also use dairy-free cheese)
*6 slices red onion, thinly sliced (Optional, but adds nice crunch and flavor)
*Three 5-ounce cans of white meat tuna packed in water, drained
*2 tablespoons finely chopped yellow onion
*2 tbsp dill relish or 2 large pickle spears, chopped
*1/3 cup homemade or mayo of choice
*1 tablespoon pickle juice
*1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
*1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (or to taste)
*Parsley for garnish

✨Instructions✨
1. MIX THE TUNA SALAD: In a medium mixing bowl, add the canned tuna and break up the tuna with a fork. Transfer the chopped onions, relish, pickle juice, salt/pepper, and mayo. Mix together until combined. 
2. TOAST MUFFINS: You can choose to toast the English muffins with butter under the broiler for 2-3 minutes. However, if you don’t want to toast before adding the tuna, that’s okay. It still turns out great without toasting muffins first. 
3. BUILD THE MELTS: Divide the tuna mixture evenly among each of the toasted English muffins. Add a thin slice red onion along with a thin slice of Colby Jack cheese over the top.  Return to the oven and bake for 7-8 minutes in a 375F oven or until cheese is melted. Garnish with fresh parsley and enjoy!
