Another tasty dish from Go Figure chef/co-owner David MacDonald

This recipe is perfect for a summertime BBQ! It’s quick and easy to prep and only takes a few minutes to grill.

1 lb. peeled, thawed raw shrimp             ½ tsp. salt

¼ cup freshly squeezed lemon juice       ¼ tsp. pepper

¼ cup olive oil                                          1 medium garlic clove, chopped

1 tsp. agave                                                ½ small bunch fresh basil

 

 

Blend all ingredients in blender, except shrimp (that would be interesting!) Mix shrimp with blended sauce and marinate for about ½ hour. Cook on medium heat until done, about 5 minutes. Enjoy!

 

Please Note: Shrimp is only 28 calories/ounce, so to get 140 protein calories you would need to eat 5 ounces of shrimp. It’s important to get enough of it, along with your healthy fats and veggies, or you will go away feeling hungry after eating it.basil lemon shrimp
