Mediterranean Shrimp Cauliflower Bowl

Dinner, Lunch, Recipes

Recommendations:

  • Seasoning: My go-to seasoning is from The Spice Lab. Their Spicy Seafood seasoning is amazing and award winning (literally). A good alternative is the Blackened Seasoning as well. If you don’t like heat, you can go with a simple salt and pepper as well.
  • Feta: I don’t think you can go wrong with Feta in most cases. However, the best Feta I have had is the Garlic and Herb Feta from Athenos. The additional flavor it has from the seasoning adds to this dish perfectly. Sometimes I will add a little to the cauliflower while it is cooking to have a more creamy texture.
  • Riced Cauliflower: I like to take the easy route here and buy this premade from Green Giant, I find it easier to cook when I am in a rush and the taste is consistent. However, if you want to make it homemade, the Minimalist Baker has a quick and easy recipe here.
