Okay post-op friends. I’ve got another great shrimp recipe for you!

I love the flavors in this recipe – the pesto and my favorite seasonings for sure. I also really love the texture. I’m a fan of summer squash with a little crunch still left compared to mostly softened so between the texture and the flavors of this recipe, I’m putting it up there on my go-to list!

I also love how fresh and summer like it feels. The pesto brings that vibrant fresh basil taste and the tomatoes are an awesome compliment!

Many post-bariatric surgery patients do well with shrimp. It’s a lean protein source that is not super dense compared to beef or chicken breast. Those solid proteins are AWESOME for hunger and portion control (and therefore weight loss) but it is nice to change it up with shrimp!
