Quick and Easy Yummy Sautéed Pineapple Mango Salsa Coconut Infused Tropical Jumbo Shrimp


You all know I love me some food. I've loved to cook ever since I was 11 years old and my mother worked two jobs, essentially leaving my brother and I to either fend for ourselves (microwave totinos anyone?) or figure it out and learn to read a recipe or two. However, since having weight loss surgery, I focus on healthy but very flavorful meals for my family. Here's a recipe that I wrote when doing a coconut oil review and giveaway, that I had to bring it over and share it with my current readers!!! It will just give you a little tidbit of summer in all this dreary winter weather.  

Sautéed Tropical Pineapple Mango Salsa Coconut Infused Jumbo Shrimp 

  • 1 lb raw, wild-caught large to jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 jar fruit based salsa (I am in love with a mango/peach blend
  • 1/2 c crushed pineapple + juice
  • About 1/3 cup Tropical Traditions Gold Label Coconut Oil 
  • Chopped Garlic (I used like 3 fresh large sized cloves)
  • Finely Chopped Onion or Shallot (1/3-1/2 medium~ about 1/3 cup)
  • Dash of Crushed Red Pepper if you want a little extra kick of spice
 
DIRECTIONS:
  1. Peel the shrimp, leaving on the tails.
    (Obviously thaw if frozen)
  2. Chop 1/2 onion (or shallot), 3-4 cloves garlic (or more if you're like me and believe garlic should be its' own food group).

  3. Pour about 1-2 tbsp coconut oil into pan, sauté garlic onion, do not let the garlic and onion burn or brown! You want the onion translucent.

  4. Place shrimp in sauté pan with the mango/peach salsa, pineapple, and 2 more tbsp coconut oil.
    If you have prep time, can prep the night before, or can freeze ahead, try to let the shrimp and yummy goodness flavors marry together.
  5. Finally toss shrimp and entire marinade mixture in the sauté pan. Sauté until shrimp become pink all the way through.




 Enjoy!!!

  21. Holy Mama that looks good!! My kids LOVE shrimp. I made a quick hibachi chicken steak and shrimp the other night and I had to literally go and take some of the shrimp out and put them aside for my husband or my kids would have ate them all before he even got home!

  48. I've tried quite a few salsas, we have a nearby mexican restaurant that has tons of different flavors, including a pineapple one. I haven't tried the pineapple yet, it just doesn't sound good with mexican food. But you used the salsa on shrimp with coconut oil, that sounds wonderful to me. Is this part of your diet, as you mentioned your surgery and trying to eat healthy? If so, please share your diet...
