This recipe is very simple and perfect for busy nights! You will be in and out of the kitchen in less than 25 minutes.  This gluten free and low calorie stir fry is great for lunches during the week.

1.5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 tablespoon of minced garlic
1 teaspoon of Flavor God Lemon and Garlic Spices (can use any brand)
*1.5 lbs of small shrimp, peeled and deveined
12 ounce bag of broccoli florets
12 ounce bag of cauliflower florets
dash of pepper

Heat olive oil and garlic in large skillet over medium heat. Add broccoli, cauliflower and lemon garlic spices and cook until almost tender. Next add in shrimp and dash of pepper  and continue to cook for 2-3 minutes. You can serve this over brown rice, rice noodles, spaghetti squash or just enjoy it the way it’s prepared. This is such a versatile recipe, feel free to add many other vegetables, such as snow peas, carrots or onions.

If you love soy sauce but want to keep the sodium content down you can top this with Coconut Aminos! I promise you won’t notice a difference. You can find a bottle at Kroger or Walmart. Perfect to keep on hand.

*If frozen, thaw the shrimp: Place the shrimp you want to cook in a colander in the sink and run cold water over them for about 5 minutes. Toss the shrimp occasionally to make sure they are all exposed to the cold water.

  1. I’m going to try some of these!!

  2. I can find the Flavor God Lemon & Garlic Spices anywhere here on the West Coast. Is there any homemade substitution I can use for this dish?

      Hello Nadine, I just googled Lemon Garlic Spice and there are quite a few different brands out there. Spice Islands has one, which is a very common brand. I guess if you wanted to do it at home, maybe just try fresh squeezed lemon and a pinch of garlic salt or powder. You can always use other spices, Old Bay Seasoning, Tonys Cajun Seasoning, any of those would be good too.
