Skinny Louisiana Honey Glazed Shrimp

 

This 15 minute, high-protein, low-net carb, anti-aging dish is perfect for busy weeknights.

Spring is our favorite time in the Skinny Louisiana house. Great weather, family events, and seafood! Our favorite Louisiana seafood? Shrimp. Shrimp is a Louisiana superfood not only due to its low-calorie, high-protein ratio but also because of its antioxidants. That’s right! Shrimp is loaded with antioxidants. While we think of blueberries and cocoa as antioxidant rich foods, our Louisiana shrimp is loaded with the antioxidants selenium and astaxanthin, both amazing anti-agers. Add in our honey and olive oil, we have an amazingly high-protein, anti-aging dish!
