Nutty Shrimps over Kale

This is a fun recipe balanced in fats and proteins and PACKED with nutrients thanks to the kale and pepitas!  And I think it took me all of 7 minutes to make...love it!

10 shrimp, thawed, peeled
3-4 big leaves of organic red kale
1/2 ounce (small handful) of pepitas (shelled raw pumpkin seeds)
2 oz coconut milk

Rinse and coarsely chop the kale and put in a heavy saucepan with a lid and a few splashes of water, cook until they're soft enough for your liking. Add the pepitas and the shrimps and cook for another 2-3 minutes, just until the shrimps are that awesome orange color. 
Plate and pour the coconut milk over the top. Easy-Peasy. And yummy! 


  1. This looks great and so simple. Could you put a facebook link and a google reader link on your page so it would be easier to follow you?

  2. Thanks for the tip Cathy! I think I managed to get both links into the blog - let me know if they work, and if you have any requests!

  3. This looks so good. I can't wait to try it. Thanks! How many would you say this serves.

  4. This one serves one - plan on about 1/4 pound of shrimp per person and the rest change to suit volume. For a family of 5, say, I'd use 1.25lbs shrimp, a whole bunch of kale or chard (about a pound?), two handfuls of seeds and a can of coconut milk.
    Depending on where you live, that would cost you under $15 and be PACKED with nutrients! Love it.
    Hope that helps!
