The perfect meal

14 hours of parenting today and I'm pretty much over it, so let's just cut the whining and get to the good stuff, mmk?

I don't want to sound overly dramatic, but if both a bowl of this shrimp curry AND my children were somehow hanging from a cliff and I could only rescue one...

...I mean...

...just LOOK at how good this is!

I'd still choose my kids OF COURSE, but man, I'd shed a few tears seeing this fall to its fate.

It has pretty much everything I like, both taste-wise and nutrition speaking. Fiber. Protein. Vitamins.

Shrimp Curry

~24 oz jumbo shrimp, thawed (I personally like raw deveined tail-off, but get whatever you like)

3 red bell peppers, seeded and diced (you could use yellow or orange. I just like how the red looks. #superficial)

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 sweet onion, diced

1/2 teaspoon minced garlic

1 cup matchstick carrots

1 12 oz bag cauliflower rice, cooked to package instructions.

1 13 oz can lite coconut milk

1 tablespoon green curry paste (can do less depending on how spicy you prefer)

1 tablespoon lime juice

1/2 teaspoon ground coriander

1 teaspoon turmeric

1 teaspoon ground ginger (fresh would be awesome, but I only had powdered)

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper

Fresh cilantro for garnish

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-high heat and add olive oil. Toss in shrimp, onion, and peppers. Cook for a few minutes, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is pink and firm. Add garlic, carrots, and cauliflower rice. Stir to evenly mix.

Meanwhile in a pourable bowl, whisk together coconut milk, curry paste, ground coriander, turmeric, ginger, salt, and pepper. Pour over the shrimp mixture and let simmer for a few minutes.

Serve with a garnish of extra lime juice and cilantro, if desired.

Makes four heaping servings. Per serving: 353 calories, 16 grams carbohydrates, 8 grams fiber, 14 grams fat, 34 grams protein, 777 mg sodium, PLUS this gives you 227% of your daily vitamin C needs AND 248% of your daily vitamin A needs. Peppers and carrots don't mess around when it comes to packing in the nutrients.

Perfection in a bowl!
