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.
