Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. shrimp
  • 2 tbsps. taco seasoning
  • 1 tsp. paprika
  • 3 tbsps. lime juice
  • 4 tbsps. olive oil 1 tbsp. for searing
  • 1 tbsps. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1 tbsp. black pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup black beans
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican Cheese
  • 1 1/2 cup corn
  • 3 cups brown rice cooked
  • chopped green onions (optional)
  • Taco Ranch optional

Instructions

  • Marinate shrimp with olive oil, garlic, paprika, lime juice, taco seasoning, salt and black pepper. Let them marinate in the fridge for 20 minute if time permits, but not required.
  • Heat 1 tbsp. of olive oil in a non-stick pan and pan sear the shrimps on each side for 3-4 minutes, until they get gold and cook fully.
  • Remove from heat and cover with aluminum foil for 5 minutes.
  • Assemble the shrimp with remainder of the ingredients in 6 meal prep bowl. Store in fridge for up to 3 days.

Notes

  • Ideally marinate the shrimp in the fridge for 20 mins, but this is not essential.
  • The shrimp are done when they turn opaque and form a 'C' shape.
  • Pan sear the shrimps or grill them if you have an easy outdoor grill set up.
  • Keep an eye on the shrimp as they cook! You don't want to overcook them and they turn rubbery.
  • Cook the rice according to package directions before getting started on the shrimp so it cooks while you are preparing the shrimp.
  • Top the shrimps with some chopped green onions to add in some more fresh flavors
  • To spice things up, you can add in some crushed red pepper flakes.
  • If you are a heavy eater and need more macro, double up the quantity.
