I have been loving fresh seafood since I have memory. Umm!, seafood, is delicious all over the world. Those shrimps have nutritional values and nutrients, cholesterol, proteins, vitamins B12, B6, A, E, some vitamin C, and minerals like selenium, iodine,  zinc, iron, copper,  phosphorus, choline, sodium, and magnesium. They are healthy but in moderate amounts.

I grew up on a tropical and Caribbean island, where is supposed the seafood and the fish are wherever, is not too easy to understand that, but is not true, that is happening in my country. If you find them, you would have to pay a lot of money for them. Explaining this means that I am very excited when any of the seafood is coming to my mouth, because "The reserves imposed on pleasure, excite the pleasure of living without reservations", right?.

The best or most common recipes of my country are with tomatoes sauce, with rice, or in a cocktail with mayonnaise, they are rich and savory, but I just wanted to upgrade my mom´s recipe, to see how it combined, the result was..., please ask my husband first, haha, he told me that you can ask him anything about my recipes better than I would do.

I live in Lincoln, NE, so it´s complicated to have a batch of fresh shrimps on my hands, but I try to do my best and to buy them raw, so, I went to one of the grocery stores and buy 2 pounds of raw shrimps, Try don´t get them farmer-raised please, mine were peeled and deveined. I washed them, and prepare the sauce.

This recipe is rich in flavor, most of the ingredients have nothing to do when they are separated, but together, they are very tasty. The recipe is also gluten-free, and keto.

Let´s go to cook!.

Preparation Time: 6-10 min
Cooking Time: 15 min
Total Time: 25 min
Serves 3-4 persons.

  1. 2 pounds of raw shrimps unfreeze
  2. 2 tablespoon of organic virgin coconut oil or grass-fed butter
  3. 4 bigger garlic cloves chopped
  4. 1/2 half big onion cut into julienne strips
  5. 3/4 container (9 oz) of organic tomatoes marinade sauce
  6. 1/2 container of cherries tomatoes cut in a half
  7. 1-2  lemon juice
  8. 1/2 teaspoon of oregano, thyme, or other you prefer
  9. 1/2 teaspoon of curry
  10. 2 bay leaves
  11. 1/2 teaspoon of ground paprika
  12. 1/4 teaspoon of ground ginger or 1/2 teaspoon fresh or you can substitute for my favorite NuStevia Ginger Syrup.
  13. 1/2 can of organic coconut milk, 13.5 oz
  14. 1//4-1/2 teaspoon of mango-habanero seasoning
  15. 1/4- 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper (add more if you want it spicier)
  16. salt to taste
  17. pepper to taste
  18. 1/2 teaspoon of dry parsley leaves or 1 tablespoon of fresh-cut.
  19. 3 tablespoon of fresh chopped chives

In a skillet, put the coconut oil on medium temperature, when it's ready, throw the onion strips to cook, add a little salt, and let them start to caramelize, then put the chopped garlic cloves, and bay leaves, stir.

Add the tomato marinate sauce, oregano, curry, mango-habanero, paprika, ginger, cayenne pepper, and tomato cherries. Let them simmer.

Add coconut milk, lemon juice and stir to combine. 

When it starts to bubbling, taste it, remember, your shrimps are without salt, so, you need to have a  salty sauce, a little over, always there is time to add more.

It is ok, throw the shrimps, stir well, wait for the sauce to boil, then,  lower the temperature, so that it does not jump and mess up everything. Cook for about 10-15 minutes without the lid.

From time to time stir well, when the sauce starts to thick, take a sip with a spoon, and add more salt and black pepper if needed.

At the moment of serving, put cut fresh parsley or dry, chopped chives, and the Ginger Syrup over. Believe me, your mouth is going to exploit happiness! 😋 

Serve over a moderate quantity of cooked quinoa, broccoli or cauliflower rice or salad, or anything you like. Enjoy!
