Lower Carb Bang Bang Shrimp

Lower Carb Bang Bang Shrimp

What I am learning about eating low carb(ish) is that for me, it is not so much that the foods are low carb, but they must have lots of flavor. I keep seeing people say eating “healthier,” whatever that may be for you, is boring and bland. I cannot eat that way. So make this as spicy or as bland as you like! Add more Siracha or hot sauce to the sauce to ramp up to the flavor you like!

Verdict: This dish had good flavors but what I have since learned is the shrimp need to be really dry before going in the egg mixture and then press the dry mixture onto the shrimp. The less you handle it the better it will stick.

    Healthy food does definitely not need to be boring at all. I am vegetarian (because of the animals, not health) but you automatically are more checking on the facts behind the food. However, taste and health are no opposites.
