Description

Creamy Coconut Shrimp has a bright lime flavor and is absolutely delicious. It’s a healthy dinner recipe that will be on your plate in only 15 minutes.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil
  • 1 tablespoon each: minced garlic and minced ginger
  • 1 14-ounce can coconut milk
  • Juice of 3 limes (a generous 1/3 cup)
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon each: sriracha and soy sauce (gluten-free, if needed. Sub coco aminos for paleo)
  • 1 lb. peeled shrimp
  • 1/4 cup minced cilantro

Instructions

  1. Heat the coconut oil over medium-high heat in a large frying pan. Add the garlic and ginger and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the coconut milk, lime juice, honey, sriracha, and soy sauce to the pan and bring it to a boil. Let it boil, stirring several times, until the sauce begins to thicken, about 5 minutes. Reduce the heat so the sauce is simmering gently.
  3. Add the shrimp to the pan and let them cook for 5 minutes.
  4. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cilantro.

Notes

I like to serve this over coconut cauliflower rice for a complete meal. While the sauce is thickening, cook some riced cauliflower in a little coconut oil.

Or put on a pot of regular rice before you start cooking the shrimp.
