During the week I like to make easy meals for my family. And there’s nothing easier than sautéing shrimp. Really, easy. I love this recipe because it’s so simple and uses just seven ingredients. It tastes a lot like the shrimp served at the Japanese restaurants where the chefs cook at the table – but it’s way better because it’s made with organic ingredients.
Where to Get Kitchen Pantry Essentials
I get my other kitchen pantry supplies like sea salt, black pepper, spices, coconut oil, and other essentials either on Amazon or my local health food store usually. But then I got a Thrive membership. If you don’t already have one – it’s awesome! It’s like Whole Foods meets Costco. Bob’s Red Mill baking soda, for instance, is about $3 at my local health food store and $6 on Amazon. But it’s only $2.03 (YES!) on Thrive Market. Great deal right? And the raw honey?! Don’t even get me started how much that costs at the health food store. But on Thrive Market it’s just $5.45 for a 10.5 oz jar of raw honey.
