Happy Monday Beautiful Friends!
After a weekend of working, I was given today off and I am so grateful to have a little time to catch up on life!
This was one of those dishes that I had planned in my head for some time, and semi-recently got around to making it and now I am finally getting around to posting it. This was my take on a southern classic of fish and grits, but I cleaned it up and made it my own.
I am in the beginning stages of planning an e-book of sorts and this dish will most likely be included! I am going to keep more details or the book secret for now, but I will soon divulge some more information!
A great thing about this dish is that each part of the dish can be used for alternate recipes if for some reason you aren’t a seafood eater or you don’t particularly enjoy cauliflower.
1 head of cauliflower
2 tablespoons of nonfat Greek yogurt
2 oz goat cheese
1 cup uncooked cleaned shrimp
Mrs. Dash Southwest Chipotle Seasoning ***or any Cajun seasoning
1 tablespoon coconut oil/olive oil
1) In a large frying pan, bring approximately 4 cups of water to a boil.
2) Rinse and chop up cauliflower into smaller pieces.
3) Steam in boiling water for about 10-12 minutes until tender. Sprinkle with a touch of salt and pepper.
4) While the cauliflower is cooking, in a medium bowl, combine shrimp, seasonings and olive oil and mix well until all the shrimp are well coated. Set aside.
5) Remove and drain cauliflower and transfer into a food processor or blender.
6) Add yogurt and goat cheese to blender and pulse cauliflower until well puréed. * If you’re purée is still chunky, add some more yogurt.
7) In a small sauce pan over medium heat, sauté shrimp until translucent, about 3-5 minutes on each side.
8) Take some of your “grits” and top with shrimp.
9) Share and Enjoy!
I really loved this dish and I’m thinking about heading to the store now to get some shrimp now! I used an herbed goat cheese and I found that it beautifully complemented the heat from the shrimp. I think I also seasoned my shrimp with an additional touch of cayenne because I loveeee the spicy. Quick and simple dinner under 30 minutes!
