I‘m really trying to eat much healthier and I won’t lie: it’s a day-by-day battle, often hard-fought and occasionally lost. One area I’m really try to improve is my carb intake. It’s much too high for my age and sedentary life. It breaks my heart cutting back, but if I want to get healthy, I have no choice. What does make it more bearable is finding delicious, low-carb meals like this one.
Even better, I only need one bowl and one sheet pan to make it. To be fair, if you’re feeding a family of four or more, you’ll need two pans. But still only one bowl, so all-in-all, not too shabby! Of course, none of that matters if the meal isn’t good. Fortunately, my friends, this is a simple, flavorful dish that you’ll want to put into regular rotation.
Sometimes I think we overcomplicate things. I’m certainly guilty of doing this, both as a cook and just a regular, old human being. Complicated seems better or more valuable in our eyes, which it can be. But not always. In fact, I would say less often than we tend to believe. This dish certainly proves it.
It’s very easy to make and the seasonings enhance versus mask the main ingredients, which are very good-for-you foods that I gobbled-up with a smile. And I didn’t even miss the carbs. Well, I barely missed them. 😀
This is also a fantastic meal for a busy weeknight, which for most people is every weeknight. It doesn’t take long to assemble or bake and tastes so fresh and clean. My body really craves meals like this, which serves as a good reminder that I need to cook and eat like this more often too.
And yes, the observant may have noticed a lack of parsley mixed with the shrimp. I forgot to pick some up. I like the freshness it adds, but don’t sweat it if you forget it either. 🙂 This is a low-fuss meal!
