Coconut breaded shrimp

Coconut Breaded Shrimp

(what I used in parenthesis)

 

Set oven to 350 degrees.  Clean and pat dry shrimp.  Get three shallow bowls for your prepping stations.  In bowl 1 add your flour and seasonings, bowl 2 is your eggs, bowl 3 is your coconut flakes and bread crumbs.  Coat shrimp in bowl 1 then bowl 2 then bowl 3.  Place on cookie sheet that has been sprayed with cooking spray.  Cook for 10-12 min, turn and cook and additional 7-10 min or until golden brown.  Serve however you like shrimp, I prefer to dip them in my homemade bbq sauce lol

Broccoli, Cheese and Ham Omelet

Ham, cheddar and broccoli omelet

 

Broccoli, Cheese and Ham Omelet

(what I use in parenthesis)

  • 2   eggs (free range, farm fresh)
  • pinch sea salt (here), dash black pepper (here)
  • 1 TBS    butter (organic, grass fed)
  • 1/4-1/2 c   ham, diced (varies)
  • 1/4-1/2 c   broccoli, steamed, chopped (organic, frozen)
  • 1/4 c   cheddar cheese (raw)

Heat a skillet over medium heat.  Add your butter. Take your two eggs and break them open in a bowl add the salt and pepper, beating until fully combined and a little fluffy.  As the butter starts to lightly bubble, pour the eggs into the skillet.  I like to make holes as it is cooking for the runny parts to drain into, so that I can flip the egg over once it is good and set.  Quickly add your remaining ingredients to one side of the omelet and flip the other side over onto it.  Remove from heat and place a lid over the skillet for about a minute to let the cheese get all nice and melty (I skipped this step in the omelet pictured above because I was too anxious to get started on it lol).  Slide onto a plate and serve.

OR… if you are like me and do not have an oven safe skillet (yet), you can cover the frittata as it is cooking on the stove and pull up the edges every so often letting liquid slide under and cook until the top is set…. fauxttata… 😉 you’re welcome.
