Thai Basil Shrimp Skewers

The quickest & easiest dinner, served best along-side some sweet & creamy coconut lime cauliflower rice!

Three things I cannot get enough of lately are..shrimp, Thai food, & cauliflower rice. So I decided to combine the three and make the perfect, light dinner. I just started eating Thai food, and I love all the flavor and spice. These shrimp aren’t too spicy, I added some extra sriracha to mine because I love a little kick. But, even with the extra spice, it’s perfectly balanced with the creamy coconut lime cauliflower rice. If you make these shrimp skewers, I HIGHLY recommend adding the coconut rice, you can get the recipe right here. Do it, you will not regret it.

This dish is great for a busy weeknight, it’s quick, simple, and a whole lot healthier than some take-out.
