Grilled Shrimp Skewers and Vegetables with Mustard Glaze

It’s no secret that I love shrimp. I could eat shrimp everyday – and have been obsessed with it since I was a young girl. My mom used to go to a local fish market weekly and I always tagged along because the owner would always give me a huge, cooked shrimp to nosh on while my mom placed her order. One of the first recipes I made on my own was a spicy shrimp vindaloo and it’s been a feature in many of my recipes ever since.

Shrimp is not only a delicious addition to a keto diet, this little sea creature is also one of the best sources of Astaxanthin – and anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory that is known to decrease the risk of diabetes-related complications as well as ward of some cancers. Shrimp also packs in a significant amount of selenium, which is also known for fighting diabetes as well as cardiovascular disease and also helps with cognitive function. And, shrimp is also, like other fatty fish, a solid source of Omega-3 fatty acids.

As I’ve mentioned, I have been loving to grill all year round and grilled shrimp is so much better than cooking in on a skillet! This grilled shrimp and vegetables on skewers has been on repeat at my home this year – popping with flavor, it’s perfect for a light main dish or a side for those summer barbecues.
