Paleo Shrimp and Sausage Skillet
My kids have become huge fans of shrimp. Who would have thunk. It was this dish that made them cross over to dark side, lol! I love to get the large Argentinian shrimp from Trader Joes. They are so flavorful and already cleaned up for ya. I'm not huge fan of shelling and deveining (aka cleaning out the poop) of shrimp. The other miracle of this dish is that it gets my kids eating zucchini and peppers too. They are not huge fans but for some reason with this dish they love it. So it's always a win win in our house, since it's easy to make, healthy and the kids love it!
This dish comes together in about 20 minutes. Serve it with rice pilaf and a nice squeeze of fresh lemon juice for that citrus kick. Let me know how you like it!
