Shrimp Garlic Pasta
  • 3 tablespoons coconut oil
  • 10 small garlic cloves, minced (approximately 6 teaspoons of minced garlic) (see note*)
  • 20 cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • 340 g (12 oz.) shrimp peeled, deveined, and cut in bite-sized pieces
  • ½ cup coconut milk
  • 220 g small pasta (see note**)
  • 3 cups broccoli, chopped in bite-sized pieces
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Black pepper, to taste
  • Chili flakes (optional), to taste
  1. Sauté garlic and tomatoes in coconut oil in a big pot. This is where you will mix all the ingredients later. Add the shrimp when the tomatoes are a little shrivelled. Sauté for 3 more minutes. Add coconut milk and stir everything together for another minute.
  2. Boil pasta separately with water, coconut oil, and salt in a large pot. Drain when cooked.
  3. Separately steam the broccoli.
  4. Add the shrimp sauce and broccoli over pasta. Mix well. Serve right away and sprinkle sea salt, black pepper, and chili flakes (if using).
* It might seem that there is a lot of garlic, but the garlic won't be overpowering once all the ingredients are mixed.[fusion_builder_container hundred_percent="yes" overflow="visible"][fusion_builder_row][fusion_builder_column type="1_1" background_position="left top" background_color="" border_size="" border_color="" border_style="solid" spacing="yes" background_image="" background_repeat="no-repeat" padding="" margin_top="0px" margin_bottom="0px" class="" id="" animation_type="" animation_speed="0.3" animation_direction="left" hide_on_mobile="no" center_content="no" min_height="none"]

** Any small pasta works. This time I used elbow pasta.
