Ingredients

  • 24 ounce of raw large or jumbo shrimp peeled/deveined tails on
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • juice and zest of 2 lemons
  • 2 tablespoons fresh parsley
  • 1/3 cup white wine I use Pinot Grigio
  • 1/4 cup grass-fed butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Cut each shrimp partially down the middle, careful not to cut all the way through, leaving the tails on.  In a large skillet over medium heat, add in the butter and olive oil.  Once the butter is melted, add in the garlic and lemon zest.
  • Add in the shrimp on top, then sprinkle half of the parsley, pour in the white wine and lemon juice.  Cover and sauté the shrimp for just a few minutes, until they turn pink.  Once cooked, remove the shrimp, leaving behind all the juices.  Keep the shrimp warm while you cook the cauliflower rice.
  • Add in the cauliflower rice, remaining parsley, salt and pepper and cook (stirring often) for another 5-7 minutes,  or until it reaches your desired texture.  I like mine a little on the al dente side.  Serve the shrimp over a bed of cauliflower rice, with a squeeze of lemon and a garnish of fresh parsley.
