I forget how convenient frozen shrimp can be.  I buy the frozen wild shrimp that’s already peeled and deveined from Trader Joe’s and I just dump them in a strainer (straight from the ice box) and run cold tap water on it for ~ 5 minutes to defrost them.  Then, I toss the shrimp with some olive oil, salt, and pepper and fry them up in some butter and ghee.  When I plate them, I squeeze on some lemon or lime and sprinkle on some chopped parsley (if I’m feeling fancy). 

Tonight, I served up the shrimp with some cauliflower “rice” and roasted broccoli and bacon

This dinner was easy and yummy but I was hungry an hour or two later.  Damn shrimp is too low calorie!

About Michelle Tam

Hello! My name is Michelle Tam, and I love to eat. I think about food all the time. It borders on obsession. I’ve always loved the sights and smells of the kitchen. My mother was (and is) an excellent cook, and as a kid, I was her little shadow as she prepared supper each night. From her, I gained a deep, abiding love for magically transforming pantry items into mouth-watering family meals.
