A short while ago, I paired up with Woman’s health to create 4 inspiring and healthy dishes that could ALL be made in under 20 minutes. Just incase you missed the opportunity to grab the recipes then, I wanted to share them with you on the blog now, because frankly, they’re too good to miss! I’m starting with one of my absolute favourite dishes – shrimp tacos and avocado cream. Yum!
I’m a big Sunday night chicken fajitas girl but occasionally it’s nice to change it up and get a little creative!
Using only raw vegetables in the wraps, these spicy shrimp tacos are the perfect combination of mouth-watering indulgence and healthy living. You definitely don’t feel like you’re holding back and they’re great to make for dinner with friends as it gets everyone involved! The shrimps are naturally spiced with smokey paprika and as they only take a few minutes to cook, dinner will be ready in a flash! A lot of the prep (chopping of the vegetables) can be done before hand and kept in the fridge covered with cling film and lime juice to make sure they don’t dry out.
It’s essential to smother as much avocado cream over and in the tacos as your guests allow you! It’s one of my favourite creations and consisting of mainly greek yoghurt and avocado, is the perfect healthy alternative to the likes of sour cream. If you have any left over, pop it on a salad the next day for a creamy and delicious dressing. Hope you enjoy these as much as I do!
Coming soon are my healthy Berry Crumbles, Greek Salmon with Creamy Cucumber & Dill Salad and Grilled Nectarine and Mozzarella salad.
Make sure you’re signed up to my newsletter to get the recipes when they come out!
