April 08, 2019 - Posted by
The Coaches are back with another meal prep recipe for you! In today’s recipe, we are using shrimp as our protein source and if you haven’t cooked with shrimp before, don’t worry, we’ll show you how to do it!
We are going to show you how to prepare his Mexican-inspired dish using one sheet pan, minimal oven time and lots of flavor! Our vegetables include peppers and onion, but feel free to add in any vegetable that sounds good to you. For flavor, we added olive oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin, crushed red pepper, salt and pepper. We mixed it all together and threw on a sheet pan. This makes 5 meals, one for each day of the work week!
