This recipe reminded me of a beautiful fact of life: good food doesn’t need to be fancy food. Good food can be just three healthy ingredients.
I rarely need to pack lunches, but next time I will pop this into my lunchbox. With quick prep, minimal ingredients, portability, and no-reheating necessary, it’s the perfect travel-friendly paleo lunch.
About the Ingredients
Each ingredient counts in this minimalist recipe!
Wild Baby Shrimp – Use canned or fresh, both work beautifully. Want to avoid eating residues from cleaning agents and hormone-altering chemicals? Then make sure you get wild shrimp, not farmed shrimp.
Mayonnaise – If you think that homemade mayo is the only way to avoid highly-processed, omega-6 oils like canola oil and safflower oil, think again! I am never without a jar of Primal Kitchen’s Avocado Oil Mayo. And because this mayo is free of junk ingredients, it makes sense that it is likely the best mayo you’ll ever taste.
Bell peppers – Did you know bell peppers are on the Dirty Dozen list? Buy organic to avoid ingesting pesticide residue.
- 4 oz wild baby shrimp, fresh or canned, and drained
- 1 Tbs. Primal Kitchen's Avocado Oil Mayo (or mayo of your choice), available here at Thrive or here at Amazon
- 1 red bell pepper, halved and seeds removed
- Unrefined salt and pepper, to taste
- Instructions aren't really necessary, but here you go...
- Mix the shrimp and mayo and stuff the bell pepper. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Eat.
I want to try this recipe looks so good! I can’t use the avocado mayo because it has eggs any good alternative?
Try this egg-free mayo using coconut butter-http://empoweredsustenance.com/egg-free-mayonnaise-recipe/. I’ve never tried it because I can tolerate eggs but I use coconut butter in a lot of other recipes and it looks delicious
