Lemon  Shrimp with Feta and

This is a quick way for a dinner or appetizer and using cooked shrimp!  I love getting my shrimp at City Fish and they always have cooked shrimp on hand.  You can always buy raw shrimp and make it yourself.  Either way this is a yummy recipe!

For the rice I am using cauliflower for a great Paleo meal!  If you are not paleo then go ahead and enjoy rice.

I am also using feta cheese in this recipe - feel free to omit!

Last minute I added capers and it really made this dish great.....  

 

Ingredients

  • 1 head cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter or ghee

  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano

  • 1/2 cup feta cheese, crumbled
  • Fresh parsley, chopped

Directions

  1. Chop up cauliflower and press through your food processor with the appropriate shredding disk attachment.  Or use a box grater to create your cauliflower rice.

  2. Heat a large sauté pan over medium high heat.  Add in oil and once hot add in cauliflower.  Season with salt and pepper.  Take the butter and cut into pieces then add into the pan along with the garlic, parsley and oregano.  Stir around using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.

    Let cook for about 5 minutes then add in shrimp to warm through.  Top with feta cheese and parsley then serve!
