I love having a simple go to meal that you can truly make in no time. After long days working or as of late with this virus, so many parents are at home home schooling kids and working and just trying to keep their sanity.
Having a easy healthy meal is important. This dish can literally be put together in less than 15 minutes. This is a perfect meal for a meal prep. Easy to make and full of nutrients and flavor. Take a look.
Cauliflower Rice Shrimp Bowl
12-14 shrimp, cleaned and deveined
2-3 cups cauliflower rice (fresh or frozen)
2 T olive oil
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 large red pepper, diced
1/2 large yellow pepper, diced
1/2 large onion, diced
2 t chili powder
1/2 T garlic powder
1/2 T onion powder
3 t salt
3 t pepper
Directions: Heat a medium saute pan on high heat. Rinse shrimp and lay out on paper towel and pat dry. (This will help get a nice golden exterior) Season the shrimp with with 2 t chili powder, 1 t onion powder, 1 t of garlic powder, 1 t of salt and 1 t of pepper. Mix with hands to coat. Set aside. Heat 1 T of olive oil in pan. Let heat 2-3 minutes. Add in the shrimp and cook. Cook 2-3 minutes and flip. (Note: Cook time depends on the temperature of pan and how many shrimp you have in it)
The shrimp are cooked when they are pink and the flesh is slightly opaque. Once cooked, set aside.
Add remaining olive oil to that same pan. Let heat 2-3 minutes. Add in garlic, diced peppers and onions and cook 2-3 minutes until slightly tender. Add in the cauliflower rice and cook another 3-4 minutes. (Cook 7-8 minutes if using fresh vs frozen cauliflower rice) Season with remaining seasoning.
Once rice is finished add to a bowl and top with shrimp. Serve and enjoy!
Note: This can easily be made with any veggies you have on hand. If you’d rather use 2 pans to make this dish, you would need to make at the same time. I just try to make it simple and have easy clean up.
