Garlic Grilled Shrimp

Great for summer barbecues and picnics, shrimp is also heart-healthy with omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3s may help reduce irregular heart beats called cardiac arrhythmia and also help lower blood pressure.

Recipe Ingredients:

¼ cup avocado oil

¼ cup fresh parsley, finely chopped

4 garlic cloves, minced

1 tablespoon lemon juice

¼ teaspoon black pepper

cayenne pepper, to taste

sea salt, to taste (optional)

1 lb. (25) Shrimp, large jumbo

Recipe Instructions:

In a medium to large bowl add the avocado oil, parsley, garlic, lemon juice, black pepper, cayenne pepper, and sea salt (optional), then whisk together. Add the shrimp, mixing together gently until the shrimp are well coated.

Cover the bowl with lid or plate and allow the shrimp to marinate for approximately 30 minutes.

When finished marinating, add the shrimp on to skewers and heat the grill or pan on medium high heat.Once the grill is hot, place the shrimp skewers on the grill and cook the shrimp for approximately 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until they turn pink and opaque.

When finished grilling, remove the shrimp from heat and the skewers, placing shrimp on serving plates.

Makes 4 servings.

Cucumber Salad

Refreshing cucumber salad made with only cucumbers, onions, mint, honey, vinegar, and seasoning.

Recipe Ingredients:

6 English cucumbers, peeled and thinly sliced

½ cup red onions, sliced and chopped

¼ teaspoon sea salt (to help remove excess water)

¼ cup rice vinegar

1 tablespoon honey

¼ teaspoon black pepper, or to taste

Mint leaves, for garnish (if desired)

Recipe Instructions:

Peel and thinly slice cucumbers and add to a medium bowl. Next, chop onion and add to bowl, lightly salting to help remove excess water. Press down on cucumbers to release liquid, being careful not to crush cucumbers. Once liquid is removed, as much as possible, place in a clean bowl.

In a small bowl combine vinegar and honey by whisking together. Add the honey-vinegar mixture to bowl with cucumbers, tossing lightly. Season with black pepper to taste. Garnish with mint leaves if desired.

Makes 8 servings.

Mini Mango Cobbler Pie

Delicious, mini mango cobbler pies are high in fiber, potassium, vitamin C and pectin which may help in lowering cholesterol levels. Also, mangoes are

a great source of vitamin B-6, helping to control homocysteine levels within the blood. Mangoes may also help improve brain function, decrease risk of cancer, improve digestion, decrease risk of obesity and diabetes, along with helping to strengthen the immune system.
