1/2 tsp cajun seasoning (a mix of paprika, garlic, cayenne, pepper, oregano) (1 CONDIMENT)
1/4 c water
1.5 tsp butter (1 HEALTHY FAT)
1.5 c riced cauliflower (3 GREENS)
1/2 c unsweetened almond milk (1/2 CONDIMENT)

1 wedge Laughing Cow Creamy Aged White Cheddar (1 CONDIMENT)

Directions:
  1. Thaw and rinse the shrimp, pat dry. 
  2. Add shrimp and cajun seasoning to a bowl or plastic bag, and mix or shake until coated.
  3. Heat shrimp in a skillet over medium heat until cooked through (3-4 minutes per side usually, shrimp will be pink and opaque when cooked).
  4. Add water to skillet with shrimp, scrape the bottom, simmer for 1 minute, and remove from heat.
  5. In a separate skillet, heat butter until melted.
  6. Add riced cauliflower to butter, and stir frequently for about 5 minutes.
  7. Add milk and salt, and continue to stir frequently for another 5 minutes.
