Grilled Stuffed Zucchini with Shrimp will delight your mouth in amazing ways. Spices, herbs, and loaded with nutrition.
Juicy, little bursts of sort of sweet and justalittlebit spicy goodness on a stick, grilled to perfectly, smoky perfection.
These are the things make my <3 beat.
The things that make my taste buds SING. The things that, well, you get.
These little shrimpies? I am all about them. If you didn’t pick that up already.
Considering that I am finally able to take off my eleventy billion layers of sweaters and crawl out from the warm, blanket fortress that I thought I was going to have to call “home” for all the evers that I have left on this earth, I figured it’s time to BREAK OUT DA GRILL.
Like really, this is the first recipe EVER that I grilled myself. Usually that is the hubs’s domain. But he was working.
And the craving for a light and healthy meal, JAM PACKED with flavah hit. I could have made Southwest shrimp tacos, and not ventured out into the land of scary, hot man-domain.
BUT. A girls gotta do what a girl’s gotta do yaknow?
Sidenote: Did scary, hot man-domain sound as awkward to you as it does to me?
Sidenote, the sequel: Do not attempt to spray cooking spray at your grill after you’ve already preheated it. THERE WILL BE FIRE.
I am lucky to still have my eyebrows.
These shrimp are tossed in the SIMPLEST OF SIMPLES marinade. Like, there’s THREE ingredients, kinda simple. Olive oil, Honey and Cayenne. ßYou can’t have all that sweet without a LITTLE SPICE.
If you know anything about Food Faith Fitness, you’d know that I LUHVE my high protein recipes, so I debated just stopping here.
And then the post would be written something like this: This recipe is about 95% protein, which made my muscles happy, so I just stopped there. I know it’s just some random shrimp but you should eat them because they taste good. The end. Bye.
But, I didn’t think you would be down for such an incompl-EAT (see what I did there) recipe. So, I made you some stuffed zucchini boats.
With grilled asparagus and onions obvi.
Because, when you see actual sunshine, and not the liquid kind that Seattle is known for, you grill ALL THE THINGS.
Can’t Stop. Won’t Stop.
I leave you with one piece of advice from out Australian (or is it New Zealand?) friends:
Put a shrimp on the barbie!
