Simple Shrimp Ingredient Meal (Whole30)

by | Nov 9, 2018 | Recipes, Whole30


Prep Time: 10 minutes |  Cook Time: 25 minutes | Serves 2-3


This Whole30 compliant dish is a simple shrimp ingredient meal. Ingredient meals are a great concept to master and add to your bag of kitchen tricks for nights when you just need to get something on the table. They are also a great way to use up whatever odd ingredients you may have on hand that are starting to turn in your refrigerator! You can also store leftovers separately in the fridge to mix and match with other prepped food items you have on hand which allows for some easy variety when you’re feeling stuck in a cooking rut. Our power protein here, shrimp, gets jazzed up alongside some spinach and cauliflower for a satisfying and healthy easy meal.




For Cauliflower:

1 head organic cauliflower*

1-1/2 TSP turmeric

1/4 TSP cumin


1/2 TSP S&P


For Shrimp:

1 lb EZ Peel shell on shrimp, peeled*

4 cloves garlic, finely chopped

1/2 TSP S&P

10 oz bag spinach
