Broccoli Slaw tossed with a creamy dressing and served with spicy shrimp.


Ingredients

1 lb. wild-caught shrimp (peeled and deveined)

1 tsp. old bay seasoning

1/2 tsp. ground turmeric

1/4 tsp. cayenne pepper

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1 tbsp. grass-fed ghee

1 tbsp. lemon juice

1/2 a purple onion (sliced)

1 12-ounce pack of broccoli slaw

1 sweet mini bell peppers (julienned)

2 tbsp. freshly chopped cilantro (or parsley)

1 cup cherry tomatoes

3 slices cooked no sugar added bacon

DRESSING:

1/2 a cup avocado mayo

2 tbsp. yellow mustard

1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

1/4 tsp. garlic powder

1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper

1 tbsp. filtered water


Instructions

To begin, pat the shrimp dry and toss them with the old bay seasoning, turmeric, cayenne pepper, and garlic powder. Now, heat the ghee over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the shrimp to the pan and sear for ~3 minutes on both sides or until the shrimp is pink. Remove the shrimp from the heat, toss with 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and set them aside.

Now, add the broccoli slaw, purple onions, bell peppers, cilantro, tomatoes and bacon to a large mixing bowl and aside.

Now, add all of the ingredients needed for the dressing to a small mixing bowl and whisk until creamy.

Add the dressing to the broccoli slaw mixture and toss to combine. Season with a couple pinches of sea salt to your desired taste. Transfer the salad to a serving dish and finish with the spicy shrimp. Garnish with lemon wedges and enjoy!


Notes

Store your leftovers in air-tight containers. If possible, try to store the salad and shrimp in separate containers. Will last in the fridge for up to 4 days.
