Healthy Shrimp Burrito Bowls

Happy Tuesday! I am so excited to share this recipe with you all!
I can't speak highly enough about this amazing dish!! It is so simple to make, yet so delicious and flavorful! Not to mention it is super healthy for you as well; it is loaded with protein, healthy fats, and whole grains! This dish will surely make multiple reappearances at your dinner table! 
Let's get to cooking!

Healthy Shrimp Burrito Bowls (serves 4)
  • 2 cups brown rice
  • 4 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lb shrimp (cleaned and tails removed)
  • 2 avocados, halved and sliced
  • 1 cup black beans 
  • 1 cup multicolored cherry tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup sour cream 
  • Juice of 2 limes 
  • avocado oil, to grease pan 
  • homemade taco seasoning blend (2 teaspoons paprika, 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper, 1 teaspoon garlic powder, 1 teaspoon onion powder, 1 teaspoon black pepper, salt to taste)
  • fresh cilantro, to garnish
  • quartered limes, to garnish 
Add brown rice, water, and sea salt to a pot over high heat. Stir and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce heat to low, cover, and let cook for 20 minutes. 

Whisk together sour cream, lime juice, and a pinch of sea salt in a small bowl until it turns into a sauce. Set aside.

Lightly coat a large pan with avocado oil over medium-high heat. Once hot, add in shrimp and season with seasoning blend. Cook on each side for about 2-3 minutes, or until opaque. 

Once the rice and shrimp have finished cooking, it's time to assemble the bowls! First, scoop about 1/2 cup of brown rice into a boil. Top with 1/4 cup black beans, 2 slices of avocado, handful of cherry tomatoes, shrimp, and drizzle on the lime creme sauce. Garnish with cilantro and fresh lime wedge. Serve and enjoy!
