There are so many things to love about shrimp recipes, in my humble opinion.

It’s a lean protein – so it’s filling without the fat content.

It’s super fast to cook – hallelujah.

It’s very adaptable the kind of meal you add it too!

If you’ve had Gastric Sleeve, Gastric Bypass, Duodenal switch…or really any weight loss surgery procedure…shrimp recipes are wonderful thing! I imagine that’s why you are here :)

This recipe is a fast option for a traditional caesar salad without all the extra calories. I tossed bagged kale (ripped up with my clean hands first) with cole slaw mix and parmesan cheese. Then I cooked the shrimp with a simple lemon juice and salt and pepper mixture and added it with light Caesar dressing to the salad.

I loved how fresh tasting it all was!

Some patients do well with salads and some do not…take is slow and listen to your pouch! It’s always a good idea to focus on the shrimp the most anyway, the protein is what fills you up and keeps you full which helps fight snack attacks later!
