Dinner is always better when eaten together.

Ingredients:
For the Coconut Caulirice:
  • 1 teaspoon coconut oil
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets

  • For the Shrimp:

  • ¼ medium sweet onion, diced

  • 3 sprigs cilantro, chopped
  • ½ medium lime, juiced

  • How to prepare:
    1. Preheat non-stick skillet to prepare cauliflower rice. Heat coconut oil and sauté half of the unsweetened coconut flakes to slightly brown.
    2. Place cauliflower florets in a food processor or blender, and pulse until the pieces resemble rice.
    3. Stir riced cauliflower into skillet. Sauté ingredients until coconut flakes are toasted and riced cauliflower is softened. Don’t add extra liquid and let the cauliflower rice fry in the coconut oil. . Remove the coconut flakes and riced coconut from the skillet, and cover in a container until ready to serve.
    4. In the same pan, sauté the remaining coconut oil, garlic, and onion until fragrant.
    5. Stir in coconut milk and bring to a simmer, allowing the sauce to reduce for 5 minutes.
    6. Place the shrimp in an even layer in the coconut sauce and cook on medium-low until the shrimp is soft and just begins to curl in. This should take 3-5 minutes.
    7. Gently stir in lime juice and cilantro. Top the shrimp with crushed red pepper.
    8. Place shrimp on top of cauliflower rice, and drizzle the shrimp and rice with sauce.
