Crunchy Shrimp
These grain-free crunchy shrimp are made with arrowroot and almond flour for that perfect crunch! Served with a mouth watering lemon aioli, once you pop, you just can't stop!

Did you know… Shrimp are a great source of high quality protein and provide some of the most important vitamins and minerals that make up a healthy diet. They are surprisingly low in calories and are made up of extremely healthy cholesterol.

Pairs well with fried rice and a side salad.

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 lbs peeled raw shrimp fresh or frozen & thawed
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot flour
  • 1 egg whisked
  • 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • spray oil - olive, coconut or avocado
  • Lemon Aioli
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1/2 lemon use 1 tablespoon juice
  • 1 garlic clove minced - use a garlic press or chop very fine
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt or to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper

How to Make:

  1. Preheat oven to 400° and place rack in the middle of the oven.
  2. Rinse the shrimp and lay them on a paper towel; cover with another paper towel and pat them dry.
  3. Place the shrimp into a medium-size bowl, add the arrowroot and toss lightly to coat, and then add the whisked egg and toss again to coat.
  4. Combine the almond flour and sea salt, and spread evenly onto a large plate.
  5. Using tongs, place the shrimp onto the mixture and turn to coat all sides thoroughly.
  6. Place the shrimp onto an oven-safe baking rack set over a baking sheet, and spray them lightly with oil.
  7. Bake for 10-15 minutes, or until done; this depends on the size of the shrimp.
  8. Plate the crunchy shrimp hot out of the oven, and serve with a side of lemon aioli.
