Simple shrimps over Brown rice!

I have been a lil laid back for the past one month when its come to food, however I have been lucky enough to still not gain the pounds.Starting this week I have reverted back to eating healthy again, In fact I have been supplementing my ideas in the kitchen with my mom. Of course I am learning so many more healthier tricks which I was so new to. Thanks Mom.

I made this simple shrimp over brown rice and I was so happy it was relished by my family. My mom who is very particular about her food habits took an extra serving.


1 1/2 pounds shrimps
2 cloves garlic chopped
1 Thai chilli chopped
1/2 cup onion chopped
Zest of one lemon
Juice of one lemon
1/2 tsp crushed red chillies
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/2 tsp cumin powder
Cilantro chopped
1 tbsp EVOO
Salt and pepper to taste

Marinate the shrimps with 1 tbsp lemon juice, turmeric powder and salt and pepper

Heat oil over med- hi heat.Add the garlic, chillies and onion and wait until onion are translucent.Add the shrimp and cook for about 4 minutes until the shrimps curl up and are cooked. Add the cumin, crushed red chillies and the remaining lemon juice. Garnish with the chopped cilantro and serve over cooked brown rice.

Happy Eating!!
