Simple Wild Shrimp Recipe!

 I love shrimp, always have. There is so many amazing recipes out there but I like to keep mine very simple 🙂 I like things to be easy and colorful. I want to share my easy peasy recipe that I can make in under 5 min 🙂

Ingredients:

  • wild shrimp is best
  • salt
  • pepper
  • lime or lime juice
  • garlic
  • pepper flakes
  • parsley

All I do is remove the shrimp the night before from the freezer and place it in the fridge. Next morning I just simply rinse it off and put it in a ziplock bag to marinate. For my marinade I use salt, pepper and lime juice. Just a squeeze of 1/2 a lime will do 🙂 That’s it. I will let it marinade in the fridge all day until it’s time for dinner.

Instructions:

Heat olive oil or butter in a heavy skillet over high heat until its hot. Place shrimp in an even layer on the bottom of the pan and cook for 1 minute without stirring.

Stir in garlic and red pepper flakes (optional) cook and stir 1 minute. Feel free to add some more lime juice and about 1 tbs of fresh or dried parsley.

Cook additional 1 minute 🙂 Remove shrimp with a slotted spoon and transfer to a bowl. Serve immediately 🙂

ENJOY!

How to make Crepes

My boys LOVE Crepes! They can eat them everyday if I let them, so I found this easy recipe that I have been using for couple years now 😉 It’s quick and easy to make. Here are the ingredients:

2 Eggs

3/4 cup Milk (I use almond milk but any milk will work)

1/2 cup Water

1 cup Flour

3 tbs. melted Butter

2 1/2 tbs. Sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 drops of Young Living Orange Vitality Oil (optional and make sure it’s Young Living ONLY, you can get them here).

Ningxia Berry Syrup or Maple Syrup

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 3 ingredients. Gradually add in the flour and butter, stirring to combine. Add the sugar and vanilla and tangerine oil, mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour about 1/4 a cup of the batter onto the griddle. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.

Pour about 1 tbs of the syrup and spread it around and roll it up! So EASY and quick!
