METHOD

For the Brown Rice

For the Slaw

  1. Place 2 cups of shredded carrots and 2 cups of shredded purple cabbage in a large bowl.

  2. Prep dressing by mixing together rice vinegar, lime juice, salt, and maple syrup together. Then, pour over veggies.

  3. Toss.

Greek Yogurt Dressing

  1. Whisk together Greek yogurt, olive oil, garlic powder, and lime juice.

  2. Cilantro Lime Shrimp

  3. Place coconut oil and garlic in a large sauce pan. Heat to medium/high heat. Add in shrimp and sautee for 2-3 minutes, just enough to heat them up.

  4. Squeeze on lime juice, season with salt and pepper, cumin, and fresh cilantro.

  5. ****Note: There will be a sauce of sorts that is created from the shrimp. We recommend pouring it over the rice!
