My Garlic Lime Shrimp with Cauliflower Purée may look familiar to you if you were following along during my takeover of the Whole30 recipes Instagram and Facebook pages. I created this recipe for my takeover and SO many of you loved it that I decided to get it up on the blog. Now you can pin the recipe for later (click save in upper left side of pic) or print out the recipe card below, yay!

This has become a favorite dish around our house, I think you can see why! Hello slow drizzle of ghee, wink wink!  Sometimes you just want a bowl of comforting deliciousness and this meal fits the bill! I can’t wait for another blustery Fall day in California. We had three straight days of rain last week and I was just getting into the groove of Fall. Pulling out my boots and scarves and getting all crazy with pumpkin spice errythang!  Then bam, summer was here again. I felt like Bill Murray, and it was groundhog’s day all over again ha ha!

Often times cauliflower purée/mash can be so boring and bland, but this recipe combines so many goodies into one dish it will literally take your breath away, promise! The cauliflower purée mixed with the citrus marinated shrimp is just heavenly! I love eating cauliflower this way because it’s so silky & creamy! You won’t want to share with anyone, not even your BFF! Also, the longer you marinate the shrimp the better the flavor. If you have the time for it, I highly recommend it!

GARLIC LIME SHRIMP with CAULIFLOWER PURÉE

Ingredients

    For Shrimp:
  • 1 lb. fresh shrimp, deveined
  • 1 large lime, juiced
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp thyme
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste
    For Cauliflower Purée:
  • 1 lb. cauliflower, steamed
  • 1/2 cup homemade or compliant beef/chicken broth (I used bone broth)
  • 2 tbsp coconut milk
  • 1.5 tbsp ghee
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Mix shrimp, lime juice, olive oil, minced garlic & seasonings together in ziplock bag. Let marinate about 1-3 hours.
  2. Break cauliflower into smaller pieces & steam until tender Aprox 10-15 mins.
  3. Transfer to blender/food processor & add broth, coconut milk, ghee & garlic powder. Blend until smooth. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
  4. Remove shrimp from bag & add to skewers.
  5. I cooked on a ghee coated grill pan (med-high heat) for a few mins. on each side until shrimp were pink & slightly opaque w/ red tails. Don't overcook, you want shrimp in a C shape not an O shape. An easy way to remember this: C shape for cooked & O shape for overcooked.
  6. Season w/ salt & pepper to taste, squeeze more lime on top of shrimp if desired & serve over cauliflower purée drizzled with some melted ghee.
