Instructions

Instructions are for 6 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Wash and peel the shrimp. Leave the tails on if you want. Make a cut along the top of each shrimp and remove the vein, if present./steps_item] In a bowl, prepare the marinade: add the lemon juice, soy sauce, crushed garlic, salt and chili flakes and mix well.
  2. Add the shrimp to the marinade and leave for 15 minutes in the refrigerator.
  3. Cut the green onion stalks into inch-long sticks (2.5 cm).
  4. While the shrimp are marinating, prepare the chimichurri. Mix the ingredients together in a bowl and leave to stand so that the flavors combine.
  5. Take the shrimp out of the refrigerator and put together the skewers: pierce the shrimp with wooden kebab sticks, alternating then with the green onion sticks.
  6. Cook the shrimp skewers on a barbecue or grill until they have turned opaque, around 6 to 8 minutes.
  7. Serve the skewers with the chimichurri.

Tips

Green onions are also known as spring onions or scallions.

Soak the wooden sticks in water before putting together the skewers, while the shrimp are marinating. It will stop the sticks from burning on the grill.

Chimichurri sauce comes from Argentina and Uruguay. Traditionally, chimichurri sauce is paired with grilled steaks, but it also goes wonderfully with shrimp, fish, or pork.

Keto: Enjoy losing weight (16:8) #1

If you want to lose weight while still enjoying amazing food, we’ve got the perfect meal plan for you.

To help turn you into a fat-burning machine, we’ve decided to employ intermittent fasting (16:8) in this week’s meal plan. This means your first meal will be at lunch — but feel free to drink coffee, tea, and of course, water throughout the day.

This mouth-watering ketogenic menu will keep you way below 20 grams of carbs per day. It includes some popular budget-friendly meals, such as our No-bean keto chili and Crispy tuna burgers, plus a few more elevated meals like our
Ribeye steak with loaded cauliflower mash.

Remember, you can always swap pricey ingredients such as ribeye with cheaper protein options such as chicken thighs or pork chops. Just make sure to adjust the cooking time as needed.

By skipping breakfast, you’ll automatically save money that you could potentially spend on higher-quality ingredients such as grass-fed beef and organic eggs — a good investment for your body, the animals, and the environment.
