Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner – Gluten Free – One Pan

Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner

 

Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner. All in one skillet, gluten free and on the table in 25 minutes!

Gammy likes shrimp cooked almost crisp, not at all soft like in my favorite risotto.

So of course I try my best to stay on her good side and do things the way she likes. But, I still manage to screw up now and again. Surprised?

Today’s tip 

Add a little of something slightly acidic to perk up the flavors  Squeeze in a little lemon juice or add a dash of wine. Believe it or not a little bit of good vinegar like balsamic or cider also helps  to jazz things up.

 

This one is real easy. If you want to go a step further and also have it Paleo friendly. Just substitute potatoes for the gluten free potato gnocchi.

Here we go with your Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner

 

Put a large skillet on at medium high and swirl in enough extra virgin olive oil to generously coat the bottom of the pan. Cut up the vegetables, Get them into the skillet and add the herbs.

Veggies

Toss a few times as it cooks. Cook them until the vegetables start to show the first signs of getting brown on the edges (about five minutes). Add the gnocchi and cook another five minutes or so. When the gnocchi gets soft to a poke with a table fork move the skillet to a small burner. One that will heat only the middle of the pan. Push everything out to the sides of the skillet and lay the shrimp out on the bare center of the skillet. Give them about a minute to a minute and a half each side until they are pink on the outside and opaque in the middle.

Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner

Keeping with the Mediterranean influence a chilled Italian Pinot Grigio or a French (or Italian) Chablis goes along great.

Gammy’s favorite white wine is  Pinot Grigio so, yes, that’s what we had with our Mediterranean Diet Shrimp Dinner.

It is a quick, easy and real good weeknight dinner.

And, here is another quick and easy shrimp dinner for you.

Here is another!
