Instructions

Cilantro Lime Cauliflower Rice

  • Add the cauliflower florets in a food processor and pulse until the cauliflower resembles grains of rice.
  • Mince garlic cloves and dice the onions. Chop the green onions and cilantro.
  • Heat the olive oil in a wok and sautee the onions and garlic until soft. Add the cauliflower rice and sautee for 3 minutes. Add the chopped green onions, salt, pepper and lime juice. Sautee until the rice is soft on the inside, but crunchy on the out (about 3-4 more minutes).
  • Grate the lime peel over the rice and add the chopped cilantro. Mix everything together and turn off heat.

  • Peel and devine the shrimps.
  • Mince the garlic and cilantro.
  • Add the shrimps, garlic, salt, pepper, garlic powder, cilantro and juice of a lime to a bowl. Mix and let marinate for 20 minutes.
  • Thread shrimp on wooden skewers, running skewer through the body once near the tail and once near the head end of each shrimp so it looks like the letter C.
  • Brush the ghee over a grill. Lay shrimp skewers on a grill and cook 5-6 minutes while turning them around once in a while. Reserve the leftover liquid & spices for later.
  • When shrimps are done cooking, transfer the skewers to a plate spoon the remaining liquid over.

Garlic Green Beans

  • Cut the stems off the beans. Mince the garlic.
  • Put some water to boil in a small pot. Add the green beans and cook for 4-5 minutes.
  • In a non-stick frying pan, heat the ghee and cook the garlic. Add the green beans, sprinkle the salt and pepper and cook until you can smell the aroma of the garlic.

Assembling

  • Serve 1/2 the cauli rice, shrimps skewers and green beans on a plate.
