Delicious Italian marinated grilled shrimp is topped with homemade tomato basil bruschetta and served over sautéed zucchini noodles in this healthy, Whole 30 and gluten free Shrimp Bruschetta Zoodle Bowl recipe!
The original inspiration for these bowls came from my Tomato Basil Bruschetta Recipe that I’ve been making for years! I wanted more ways to eat this delectable recipe, rather than just as an appetizer, so I served it over grilled chicken, on a bed of zoodles and the world took notice!
Today, I’m sharing how to make a similar bruschetta zoodle bowl, but with delicious grilled shrimp! And I’m serious when I say DELICIOUS grilled shrimp! I could eat this shrimp by itself, all day every day… and I did! I could not resist gobbling up a few grilled shrimps before putting these bowls together!
Chili lime garlic marinated grilled shrimp tacos with green chili avocado salsa are a simple, healthy Mexican recipe, perfect for weeknight dinners!
These tacos came about as I decided to combine a couple of different recipes that I love all in to one dish!
Chili Lime Garlic Shrimp, bomb! Green Chili Avocado “Awesome Sauce” Salsa… lets just say it has awesome in the name, bomb! Throw in a little Red Pepper Lime Slaw and some cotija cheese, a winning combination of deliciousness!
Grilled shrimp is marinated in a delicious, slightly spicy, chili lime garlic marinade, then cooked on the grill, or in a cast iron skillet, for an easy, healthy gluten free recipe!
Yay!! My first dinner post!! So unfortunately my roomie Nick is moving back to Boston on Tuesday, but fortunately that gave us a great excuse to plan a little going-away dinner for him this weekend that involved surf-and-turf!
Now if you would have asked me 5 years ago what surf-and-turf was I would have probably said some sort of exercise but after venturing in to the seafood world about 3 years ago… yes New Years Day 2009 was my first time to eat anything out of the water IN MY LIFE!
No salmon, no shrimp, no lobster, not even my favorite, crab, until this fateful day in 2009! I don’t know how I lived before crab legs, lobster rolls and one of my favorite things I’ve ever made, Chili Lime Garlic Grilled Shrimp!
Now there’s still that fishy (get it, fishy, haha) story out there that my parents always try to tell me about how I ate fish sticks from Hardee’s when I was about 9 years old because I thought they were chicken strips, but all the same, for the purpose of this post we’ll say my first fish experience was in 2009 (besides I don’t know if you can consider fish sticks from Hardee’s really fish!)
Back to the dinner! As soon as the boys (my two roommates) decided on surf-and-turf for dinner I knew I had to make these grilled shrimp. I made them once before on Father’s Day this year and they were to-die-for!
