Spicy Shrimp n Cabbage (featuring VitaminSpice)

by on Apr.28, 2010, under Fish and Seafood, Recipes, Supplementation

This dish has an unbelievable full flavor. It is high in protein and very low carb for a main course meal….which means this can be included on even the strictest of diets.

As prepared, each serving has under 15 grams of carbohydrates.  Feel free to add to the basic recipe with pea pods or water chestnuts or turn up the heat with more red pepper flakes.  Serve over brown or whole grain jasmine rice, if not on a carb restricted meal plan.  And it is stir fry, which means from pan to table in under 15 minutes!

  • 1 small/med head cabbage shredded
  • ~4-5 tsp olive oil (divided)
