Hello There,

This week I have for you a simple lemon paprika shrimp paired with whole wheat couscous with some steamed zucchini.

  • Put 1 lb of shrimp in a ziplock bag and season it to taste with salt, pepper, a bit of Mrs. Dash, 1 tsp of paprika, 1 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil and squeeze half of a lemon juice over it.. Let it sit for 15 minutes in the fridge.  Warm-up a skillet and spread the shrimp evenly and cook each side for 3 minutes.
  • Prepare the couscous by boiling 1 cup of water first.  Take the boiled water put it in a container with a lid and add 1 cup of whole wheat couscous and cover for 5 minutes.  Spread with a fork when done.
  • Boil 1/4 of water and add the zucchini cut in small half-moon shape.  Steam the zucchini for 3 minutes.
