Shrimp in a Bacon Blanket?

Yes.  So recently I have been realizing that my dietary tendencies gravitate towards more fruits and veg and not necessarily enough sources of protein or meat.

So I have been forced in this Fit Action plan by Action Jacqueln to really dive into my meat consumption, relationship to meat, and realizing that meat (grass fed and taken care of) offers many health benefits.  AND is tasty!

As my experimentation continues to spark curiousity and creativity in me as well as venturing to parts of the grocery store that I haven’t been to in a while – I made this dinner the other night that was summery, simple, and delicious so I thought I would share.

I don’t know why but shrimp for me seem to be a summer thang.  So I purchased some shrimp which I rubbed with ghee (clarified butter for those of you that don’t know) and some garlic salt.  Then I let it sit in the fridge for a bit.  Using some no sugar bacon (which can be challenging to find but I guarantee you it is out there), I took the shrimp out and wrapped a piece of bacon around each.  For half the shrimp I added a layer of no sugar mustard (also available but must read labels and contents) between the shrimp and the blanket of bacon.  Then I cooked them in the over for 15 minutes and removed.  For some color and added protein packed punch I added a cut up hard boiled egg.  The entire meal was both filling and tasty.

You could even drizzle some olive oil atop or a few herbs of choice for some more yum, flavor and color.  This is another recipe that one could get uber creative and come up with some variations on.

As always, hope this recipe finds you WELL.
