BLACKENED SHRIMP MEAL PREP

This Blackened Shrimp Meal Prep is one of my favorite dishes to meal prep. It covers all the bases as far as protein, healthy fats, vegetables, and a healthy portion of carbs. The shrimp cooks in one pan in just 10 minutes. They are tender, juicy, and full of flavor!

Yes, we are obsessed with shrimp in this house. No, we make no apologies! It’s such a delicious and quick healthy protein option. Whether its tossed in a salad, such as my Cilantro Lime Shrimp and Avocado Salad, or covered in a delicious teriyaki sauce, like my Simple Teriyaki Shrimp over Zucchini Noodles, we can’t get enough of it!

The shrimp in this dish is seasoned to perfection and served with cilantro lime brown rice and an incredible avocado salsa. Both of which compliment the shrimp exceptionally well.

MEAL PREPPING

One of the best things you can do is to prep your meals for the week! My husband and I got into meal prepping 5-6 years ago and it has been such a tremendous help. Not only do we save money from avoiding buying lunches, but it also helps us to stay on our path to eating healthier, more fulfilling meals.

We don’t meal prep every week. But I do try my best to at least prep a few meats, a salad, and snacks for the upcoming week to ensure that we make healthier choices when we are grazing in the kitchen. You don’t need to become a professional meal prepper, prepping every breakfast, lunch, dinner and snack for the week. Do what works best for you.

  • Prep overnight oats to grab on the go for breakfast.
  • Cook chicken breast to have on hand for sandwiches, wraps, or salads.
  • Steam vegetables to have as a side dish.
  • Need healthy snacks? Portion out nuts, granola, or your favorite snack into sandwich bags to grab.
  • Make a large salad with all the toppings (that can be refrigerated).

The options are endless. Whether you meal prep snacks, side dishes, meats, or even one of your meals for each day of the week, you’re making positive steps in a healthy direction. Meal prep the foods that work best for you, your family, work life, and so forth.

MEAL PREP TIPS FOR THIS DISH

  • You can swap the brown rice out for white rice, cauliflower rice, or even quinoa.
  • I recommend prepping the avocado salsa the night before and only prepping it for 2 days max. Avocado will brown quickly.
  • Don’t use an avocado that is fully ripe. With meal prepping, I recommend using an avocado that is relatively firm and just beginning to ripen.
  • Give the avocado a good squeeze of lime juice when divided into the containers. This will also help to slow down the browning.
  • If you’re not a fan of shrimp, swap it out with chicken breast. Slice the chicken into bite-size pieces and cook through. The internal temperature should read 165 degrees F using a meat thermometer

FAVORITE MEAL PREP TOOLS

I don’t get into meal prep containers that I cannot wash and re-use. I prefer to keep it simple and not have a million containers to deal with and wash either. So here are a few of the main meal prepping and storage containers we use on a weekly basis and love.

  1. Three Compartment Bento Box Lunch Containers – these work great to keep foods separated, such as fruits, salads, or nuts and seeds.
  2. Single Compartment Glass Containers – these are wonderful for recipes that are cold or hot, such as a chicken salad or chicken and vegetables.
  3. To Go Dressing Containers – I love these for dressings, hummus, nuts, cheese, or garnishments.
  4. Contigo Autospout Water Bottle – we have several of these that are always filled with water and kept in the fridge. Great for grabbing on the go for work, the gym, or simply an easy way to keep track of your water intake.
