Today calls for a sweet and savoury delight. If you have a craving for both like I did today, you’d enjoy this simple shrimp medley i scrambled together. I enjoy cooking with shrimp because it is so easy to get creative with it, plus its easy and quick! Wishing you all a great week! 


1lb raw and peeled shrimp

¼ cup chopped red onions

1 medium ripe orange (squeezed)

1 chopped garlic clove

2 tbsp pure honey

2 tsp Cajun spice

¼ tsp sea salt

4 tbsp warm water

Sliced red and yellow mini bell peppers

2-3 chopped green onions (for garnish)

1 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp sesame seeds

1. First, prepare your Cajun-orange sauce. In a small bowl, add honey, orange juice, Cajun spice, sea salt and warm water and mix until you get a semi thick sauce. Set aside to use for your shrimp.

2. Place a skillet over medium heat and add olive oil. Add red onions and garlic and simmer for about 30 seconds, then add shrimp and sliced bell peppers and cook for about 1 minute. Finally, add Cajun orange sauce to the shrimp, then cover the skillet and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Turn of your stove and transfer your cooked shrimp into a serving bowl. Top with sesame seeds and green onions and serve when ready.

Hey everyone! Winter is coming and so is Christmas! I’ve had such a busy year with nonstop activities which unfortunately derailed me from blogging my recipes and I apologize. I should be back on track really soon since things are starting to calm down a little bit, but in the meantime, let’s talk about this pizza!

For starters, let’s just say this didn’t last over 24 hours. I used the left over pizza dough from this pizza recipe I made a couple months ago and I was actually impressed with how well it preserved. If anything, the aging of the dough made the pizza taste a lot better.

    This recipe is very easy to make, well actually it’s easier to put together when the pizza dough is already made, which takes a long time so….Good luck lol. Alternatively, you could try my cauliflower crust recipe if you would prefer an easier and paleo friendly crust recipe.

Recipe: yields 4 servings

Half of my homemade pizza dough

1 tsp Cajun seasoning

Salt and pepper to taste
1 cup organic tomato sauce (smooth)
½ pound peeled shrimp
¼ cup chopped red onions
1 tsp crushed garlic
1 sliced jalapeno pepper
A handful of grape tomatoes (sliced)
½ tsp hot sauce (I used sriracha)
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese (or cheddar)
Cilantro leaves (optional, for topping)

Preheat oven to 450°F and line a baking sheet with parchment paper. Season shrimp with Cajun seasoning, salt and pepper and set aside. In small mixing bowl, combine tomato sauce, hot sauce, and garlic; set aside. Press dough into a 12-inch circle on a baking sheet with floured fingers (it may not cover all the edges unless you make a new batch of pizza dough).
Spread sauce onto dough evenly, leaving a 1-inch border. Top with cheese, peppers, onions, and shrimp.
Bake in preheated oven 12 to 17 minutes or until crust is golden brown. When ready, top with cilantro leaves and serve

If you’re looking for a low carb and high protein pasta recipe similar to what I posted yesterday, here’s an alternative. I used Flavor God garlic lovers seasoning and melted coconut oil to make the “garlic butter” to keep it on the healthy side, then coated it on the shrimp and marinated it with the shells on for an extra crunch. This also makes a good dinner option if you’re craving a pasta meal but don’t want the extra carbs👍

The recipe is very similar to my previous zoodle recipe, which you can find here.

Spicy pizzano time! I love experimenting with new pizza crust recipes because let’s face it, the quicker you find a healthy pizza crust recipe that works, the quicker you get bored of it, especially when you make it frequently. This pizza recipe is definitely a favorite because the crust tastes almost exactly like the pizza crust from Pizza Hut, and I know this because I do enjoy me some Pizza hut stuffed crust pizza every now and then 😉


Trying out different gluten free pizza crust recipes is a fun and interesting way of finding a variety of options and flavors that work, and depending on the toppings you pair them with, you could create an entirely new pizza flavor that doesn’t taste like the traditional pizza recipes we’re used to! I have a few pizza crust recipes on my blog so I have provided the links below if you would like to check them out 🙂

Cauliflower Crust Pizza (I have about 6 of these, but I have only provided 1 link. Type in “pizza” in the search bar to find the rest)

Zucchini Pizza Boats

Sweet Potato Pizza Crust

Single Serving Chickpea Pizza Crust

Zucchini Pizza Crust

Eggplant Pizza Crust

Have a great day my pizza lovers!

Recipe: Yields 8 Slices

1 ½ cups whole grain quinoa flour
¼ cup gluten free oat flour
½ tsp. sea salt
½ tsp. Onion powder
¼ tsp black pepper
1 organic cage free egg
½ cup warm water
2 tbsp. organic extra virgin olive oil
1 cup Cajun Shrimp (sauté for 2-3 minutes with a dash of olive oil after marinating)
*Toppings of choice (I used a handful of chopped red onions, red peppers, mushrooms, tomatoes, scallions, and feta cheese)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Grease a pizza pan with coconut oil or butter and set aside.

Mix all crust ingredients in a bowl and kneed with your hands. The dough is quite sticky so it may seem a little frustrating to handle, but be patient.

Place the dough in the pizza pan and spread it around the pan until you get a flat crust. The crust may not cover all angles of the pan depending on the size you are using, so your aim should be to get a flat and even crust, not to cover the entire pan 🙂

Place the crust in the oven and let it bake for 10 minutes, then take the pan out of the oven and top with veggie toppings (the shrimp and feta toppings should be used when the dough it fully cooked). Place the pizza back in the oven and let it bake for another 2-3 minutes.

When ready, take the pizza crust out of the oven and let it cool on the counter for about 2 minutes. Top with Cajun shrimp and feta cheese.

Hi guys! So i’m a little bit under the weather today, which meant I had to call out sick to work because the flu decided to visit for a few days 😦 But in between drinking soup and hot tea remedies, I figured i’d make a carb free pasta recipe :)The shrimp is breaded with almond flour because I wanted to keep it paleo, but you can also use gluten free rice bread crumbs if you’d prefer. You can find it at any health food store or even the organic section of your grocery store. Have a great day and stay warm!


1 medium zucchini (peeled)
5 pieces raw jumbo shrimp (peeled)
1 organic cage free egg
1/4 cup almond flour
1/4 tsp. sea salt
A dash of cayenne pepper
1 tsp. Mrs. Dash salt free spice mix
1 tbsp. chopped red onions
1 tbsp. chopped red bell peppers
1 tsp. coconut oil

Preheat oven to 400°F.

Peel zucchini with a potato peeper to form pasta shape.

Line a baking sheet with parchment paper.

Place egg (whisked) and almond flour in separate plates, then season almond flour with a dash of sea salt and cayenne pepper (different from the servings listed in the ingredients).

Coat shrimps individually in the egg mixture and almond flour before placing them on the baking sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes or until they look slightly brown and crispy. Take them out of the oven when ready and cover with foil paper to keep them warm.

Place a skillet over medium heat and add coconut oil.

Place zucchini, onions, bell peppers, and remaining seasoning ingredients in the skillet and let it simmer for 1 minute.

When ready, plate your zucchini with breaded shrimp.

Viola! You’re ready to eat!
