Easy and delicious salsa verde shrimp and coconut cauliflower rice is the quickest healthy dinner! Packed with so much flavor!
Happy Trader Joe’s Tuesday! I have a new easy recipe for you! All made with ingredients from Trader Joe’s, of course! This shrimp recipe comes together in minutes and requires minimal ingredients. What else could you ask for in a week-night dinner?
What you’ll need for this recipe:
Shrimp, salsa verde, cauliflower rice, canned coconut cream, and lime! I added some cilantro for some extra fresh flavor. But, that’s totally optional.

For this shrimp recipe I used the frozen red Argentine shrimp from Trader Joe’s. They are by far my favorite frozen shrimp. They almost have a lobster taste to them. The texture is also great.
You can get these ingredients at most grocery stores, not just Trader Joe’s! I just love their shrimp, salsa verde and coconut cream. Also, their pre-riced cauliflower in a bag is a life-saver.
My goal for these easy Trader Joe’s meals is to make week-night dinners less time consuming and simple! That’s why I try to do five ingredients or less. Also, all the ingredients being from the same store is a huge bonus. Bouncing from multiple stores for groceries can be exhausting. These recipes are a one stop shop!Print

1 lb. shrimp, I used red Argentine, if frozen make sure they are de-frosted

Add lime juice and zest. Remove from heat and set aside.
Carefully wipe down skillet or use another one and heat over medium high heat.
Add the other tbsp olive oil.
Add shrimp in a single layer and let them cook on each side for 2 minutes or until they’re cooked through.
