Get excited for this recipe, people! Today I am thrilled to be partnering with ALDI for this delicious healthy coconut shrimp recipe. I first started shopping at ALDI back when I was in college (10 years ago OMG). I remember it as the affordable grocery store near campus that sold really high-quality food and had amazing deals. Lucky for all of us, this is still true today, woo! If you live in the Minneapolis/St. Paul metro area there are…get ready for this…25 different ALDI locations to choose from. 25!
In today’s recipe, I am featuring two different ALDI products– Sea Queen Frozen Medium Cooked Shrimp and the Ambiano Professional Nutrition Blender. Friends, if you are in the market for a new nutrition blender, the Ambiano is the best I’ve ever used. It’s super powerful and the size of the cups are perfect for smoothies, sauces, dips, dressings, you name it! When I say powerful, I mean it pureed my soaked cashews for our Creamy Vegan Pasta in NO TIME. Guess how much it retails for? $39.99! And it goes on sale March 14!
Anyways, I’m excited to tell you more about this delicious recipe.
The star ingredient for this baked coconut shrimp recipe is…SHRIMP! Shrimp is one of those foods that I just love so much, but don’t eat nearly enough of. ALDI Sea Queen Frozen Cooked Shrimp comes in multiple sizes, medium, large, and jumbo. In this recipe, we used the medium size, but any of them will work! What I love about ALDI shrimp (and seafood) is that they partner with the Sustainable Fisheries Partnership and the Global Aquaculture Alliance to source sustainable seafood wherever possible. ALDI aims to buy all its fish and shellfish products from responsibly-managed fisheries and farms that have minimal impacts on the marine environment.
I CAN GET DOWN WITH THAT.
This recipe might look intimidating, but it’s really not! It’ll take you less than 30 minutes to make, too.
