PCOS Diet Friendly Shrimp Scampi
from Amy Medling, PCOSDiva.com
My sweetheart loves shrimp. He is from the South and grew up vacationing in St. Simons on the coast of Georgia where shrimp abounds. He loves them fried, baked and broiled, but for this Valentine’s Day, I thought I would make my special Shrimp Scampi. It is a healthy and festive dish, perfect for the holiday. Serve with spaghetti squash or spiralized zucchini to make it very PCOS Diva friendly. Add a side salad with my Dressed up Vinaigrette and a slice of my Flourless Chocolate Cake for dessert to make the dinner complete.
1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup shallots, minced
1/2 cup white wine
4 cups shredded kale or spinach
3 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup parsley chopped
1 lemon, juiced and zested
sea salt and ground pepper to taste
1 cup chopped and seeded fresh tomatoes
Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and shrimp and sauté until shrimp are cooked through. Remove to a plate. Add the garlic and shallots to the skillet and sauté until both are fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the lemon juice, white wine and greens and raise the heat to high. Let the liquid reduce and greens wilt for 2 minutes. Whisk in the butter and return the shrimp to the pan. Mix in the zest and parsley and season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped tomatoes.
