  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb frozen raw shrimp, desfrosted and de-shelled
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 yellow onion, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 4 cups cauliflower rice (or 1 head cauliflower)

  • 2 cups mixed frozen vegetables
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 egg
  • 4 green onions, sliced

  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over med-high heat. Add shrimp and season with salt & pepper, stir frying for 2-3 minutes until shrimp are no longer translucent. Remove from heat and transfer to a plate.
  • Without wiping skillet clean, add butter. Once melted, add onions and garlic, sauteeing for 1-2 minutes until softened. Add cauliflower rice and soy sauce, sauteeing another 5-6 minutes until softened. Stir in frozen vegetables and salt, and cook another 2 min.
  • Create a circle in the middle of veggies and add a tiny bit more butter. Crack egg and scramble, cooking for 30 seconds or so until solid. Stir in with the rest of veggies, and add shrimp back to pan.
  • Remove from heat and stir in green onions, then garnish with sesame seeds. Serve and enjoy!
  • Storage and reheating: Wait until meal has cooled slightly, then store in glass meal prep bowls up to 5 days. To reheat, microwave for 1-2 minutes.
