Sesame Shrimp

Every now and then I get a craving for some good Chinese food so when this happens I do what I love to do best – I love turning foods into Paleo friendly meals.  I looked in my cabinet and I had coconut aminos, balsamic, garlic and sesame seeds, so I figured I’d give this a try to see how it turned out not thinking it would of turned out as good as it did.  This is probably the closest to Asian food I will ever get! :p   My favorite part about this was it took me under 10 mins.  From work, to CrossFit to home to do school work I am all about my 10 minute delicious meals.  If you’re craving something different and delicious try this!

Ingredients (serving size 1):

  • 12 Uncooked Shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon coconut aminos
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon garlic powder (or fresh garlic, I would of preferred fresh but went with what I had)
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil


Heat a medium pan on medium heat and add the coconut oil to melt.

In a bowl mix together the coconut aminos, balsamic vinegar and garlic powder.

Place the shrimp in a seperate bowl and pour the mixture on top.   (If you let this marinate for a little while I bet it will taste even better!)

Once the coconut oil is melted and the pan is heated, add the shrimp to the pan and cook until brown on all sides.

Top with the sesame seeds and mix well together.

This will go well with just about anything!  I’m a big guacamole person so I ate this with a side of quac (don’t judge!).

Enjoy all!

    We just made this shrimp for dinner and it was delicious! So quick & easy! I made it with a side of zoodles with almond butter sauce. I like the idea of pairing it with guac. Thank you for the recipe!
