Hey guys! It’s been a hot minute since my first “In the Kitchen” post. Now this doesn’t mean I haven’t been eating lol, I’ve just been a bit busy juggling school and work. Most days I’ve just been eating leftovers or eating out (which costs way too much!). If I’m serious about gaining the 10lbs I so desire I gotta make sure I’m eating right.
Today, I want to share with you one of my favorite recipes which is also my go to recipe for when I am: 1) feeling a bit lazy, 2) too tired from work/ school and 3) just want a quick meal. My friend who was in law school at the time introduced me to this meal a little over a year ago and since then it has been a staple in my life. The good thing about this recipe is that you can get all the ingredients for under $20 and it takes less than 30 minutes to make.
Check out the ingredients and how to prepare this meal below ⬇️
2 zucchini squashes
1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
½ yellow bell pepper, sliced thin
1 lemon juiced (about 2 tablespoons)
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
½ teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons olive oil
Preheat oven to 400°F.
Use a vegetable peeler, peel long strips from the zucchini.
In a large bowl, mix the zucchini strips, shrimp, sliced bell pepper, lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, and olive oil until the mixture is evenly coated.
On a roasting tray, spread the mixture into one even layer and bake for 8 minutes.
Partake in this delicious meal!
