Fiesta Shrimp

21 Day Fix Fiesta Shrimp

I love a good shrimp recipe! We don’t eat a lot of seafood in our home, so when we do, it is a real treat. (I have this rule about being able to see the water a fish was caught in OR that we are in a nice fish restaurant to order or make fish!) ANYWAY, this 21 Day Fix Fiesta Shrimp recipe is awesome over some spaghetti squash with some veggies.   If I wasn’t on the Countdown to Competition plan today, I would have added Feta cheese, too!  One of my favorite meals!

Fiesta Shrimp - 21 Day Fix Approved!
Serves 2
Delicious combination of flavors is like a fiesta in your mouth! LOL Ok, sorry for being cheesy - this is one of our favorites! My husband said - 'this is top 5 for sure!'

    I bookmarked it.

  2. Karen

    What size bag of shrimp???

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Karen! I used a 1 pound bag of the frozen – BUT – I found that it was actually the SAME PRICE (if not a little cheaper) to go to the seafood counter at my local grocery and purchase a pound of their fresh jumbo shrimp. YUM!

  3. Laura

    Eating this now, delicious!! One question, is chicken broth allowed on the 21 day fix?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Thank you Laura!! πŸ™‚ I am so happy you love it! YES! Chicken broth is allowed (I typically will use the low sodium) – it is counted as a free food. πŸ™‚ Thank you for taking the time to let me know you enjoyed the recipe! πŸ™‚


  4. Gaby

    Angela thank you this looks amazing! Do you know how many shrimp count as 1 red? Is it how many fit in the container?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Gaby! It is delicious! Yes – fill the red container with the shrimp. πŸ™‚ Enjoy!

  5. Michelle

    Hey there, this sounds delicious, I was just wondering if you choose to do this as a freezer meal what is the best way to cook it after it’s been frozen?

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      The Fiesta Shrimp is delicious! If you are using fresh shrimp, I would season it and place it in a freezer bag – if you are using frozen – place the frozen shrimp in the freezer bag and season (DO NOT THAW!) When you are ready to cook, thaw first and dump the contents of the freezer bag onto the pan and follow the cooking directions! πŸ™‚

    How does the chicken broth thicken

    1. Angela Dimitrelias

      Hi Sandy – as it cooks, it will reduce into a thicker ‘sauce’ on the shrimp.
