I am thrilled to have Lydia from Five4Five Meals join us today with a scrumptious recipe that is both healthy and delicious.
Take it away, Lydia!
I was practically born in the kitchen. I come from a long line of southern cooks and if it isn’t deep fried, covered in cheese and slathered with butter it must not be good, right? Wrong.
I say this all the time and it is my truth I AM A WORK IN PROGRESS.
My health is a work in progress, my transition to a healthier kitchen is a work in progress and my ability to overcome the southern “unhealth” food is a work in progress.
But I still love my Alabama cuisine. Particularly the shrimp. I am a sucker for a good shrimp.
Have you ever roasted shrimp in your oven? If you haven’t be prepared to have your life changed.
Roasting shrimp makes them super sweet and plump. Like butter, without the butter.
This little recipe is Honey Cilantro Shrimp, which I whipped up with just a few things I had lying around. They are super simple, super yummy and they won’t leave you feeling like your pants will split up the back.
What you'll need:
1/2 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
1/2 a cup fresh cilantro, chopped
2 -4 tbsp honey
2-4 tbsp olive oil (I used Extra Virgin Kalamata Oil)
Preheat your oven to 350 and spray a cookie sheet with Pam and set aside.
In a large bowl combine your honey, olive oil and cilantro. Whisk it all together so it fully incorporates.
Pour the mixtures with the shrimp onto a cookie sheet and slide in the oven. You will want to roast them 20-25 minutes.
