Basil Lemon Shrimp
This is the last of our recipes for food served at our December Open House. We hope you have been trying and enjoying these recipes!
– 1 lb. peeled, thawed raw shrimp
– 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
– 1/4 cup olive oil
– 1 tsp. agave
– 1/2 tsp. salt
– 1/4 tsp. pepper
-1 medium garlic clove, chopped
-1/2 small bunch (.75 oz) fresh basil
Blend all ingredients in blender, except shrimp (that would be interesting!), in blender. Mix shrimp with blended sauce and marinate for about 1/2 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 oz of shrimp. It’s important to get enough of it, along with your healthy fats and good carbs, or you will go away feeling hungry after eating it.
