H-Burn Recipe: Basil Shrimp
Your taste buds will feel like the H-Burn is an intervention for them and not your hormones after you’ve eaten these shrimp with a pleasant zing! Add fruit on the side or a dressed salad to make it a lunch.
Or, nix the fruit and enjoy it with a salad for an H-Burn dinner.
Prep time: 15 minutes | Total time: 1 hour, 15 minutes | Serves 4
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 1/2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
- 1 1/2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
- 1/4 cup minced fresh basil leaves
- 1 1/2 teaspoons minced garlic
- Sea salt to taste
- Black pepper
- 1 1/2 pounds fresh jumbo shrimp (about 16-25 count per pound), peeled and deveined
In a shallow dish, mix together the first 5 ingredients (olive oil, lemon juice, Dijon mustard, fresh basil leaves, garlic), and season with salt and pepper. Add the shrimp, and toss to coat. Cover, and refrigerate for 1 hour.
Preheat the grill or broiler to high heat. Remove the shrimp from the marinade, and thread them onto skewers. Spoon or brush any excess marinade onto the shrimp.
Arrange the skewers in a single layer on a broiler pan. Broil for 2 to 4 minutes (depending on your broiler), or until opaque.
This is a delicious recipe for Phase 3.
