Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner – Gluten Free – One Pan – Quick and Easy
Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner……..
……All in one skillet, gluten free and on the table in 25 minutes!
Gammy likes shrimp cooked almost crisp, not at all soft or borderline mushy like in my favorite form of risotto.
So of course I try my best to stay on her good side and do things the way she likes. But, I still manage to screw up now and again. Surprised?
This one is real easy and if you want to go a step further and also have it Paleo friendly then just substitute potatoes for the gluten free potato gnocchi.
Here we go!
Just put a large skillet on at medium high and swirl in enough extra virgin olive oil to generously coat the bottom of the pan. Cut up the veggies, put them into the skillet and add the herbs.
Toss it all together and toss often as it cooks. Cook until the veggies start to show the first signs of getting brown on the edges – about five minutes. Add the gnocchi and cook another five minutes or so until the gnocchi gets soft to a poke with a table fork and the veggies are cooked through.
Move the skillet to a small burner that will heat only the middle of the pan. Push everything out to the sides of the skillet and lay the shrimp out on the bare center of the skillet. Just about a minute to a minute and a half a side until they are pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.
Toss it all together……
…and serve it up!
Keeping with the Mediterranean influence a chilled Italian Pinot Grigio or a French (or Italian) Chablis goes along great.
Gammy’s favorite white is Santa Margarita Pinot Grigio so, yes, that’s what we had with our Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner. It was a super quick and easy and super good weeknight dinner.
