SHRIMP

When Purchasing shrimp, I go for: Most industrial fish farms are so crowded and unsanitary that manufacturers must use high levels of antibiotics, pesticides, and other substances to prevent disease. Residue from these toxins winds up in the flesh of the shrimp, posing risks to our wellbeing. Besides great taste, wild-caught shrimp provide a lot of health benefits. FROZEN. Most”new” fish sold in supermarkets have been shipped frozen and then thawed to the fish counter. That means that the shrimp you see in the freezer aisle is precisely the same as what is presented as”new”–it just hasn’t been sitting around on a bed of ice all day.

This is one of my favorite recipes, and I am excited you will attempt that, too. Below, I’ll describe how to buy the best ingredients and show you step-by-step the way to put this delicious Shrimp and Vegetable Skillet together.

VEGETABLES

I’m using zucchini and bell peppers in this recipe. These vegetables have the same cooking time and work well together. That said, you can use asparagus, onions, okra, or green beans as a substitute.SEASONINGSCajun spice mix and paprika are employed in this recipe. Please, make sure to have regular, sweet paprika on hand, and not the spicy variety.

WHAT TO SERVE SHRIMP AND VEGETABLES WITH

This yummy dish can be served as is, with a few crusty pieces of bread on the side. It will also pair nicely with cooked rice, quinoa, couscous, and pasta. This Shrimp and Vegetable Skillet remains well in the refrigerator and tastes good the following day. Additionally, it makes an ideal meal prep option. Enjoy!
