Spring Break = Time to Bake

In the last month or so, inspired by the gamers and some of my other fellow CrossFitters, I have tried to work towards eating a livable Paleo diet.  My personal struggles with Paleo come in the form of dairy and desserts.  So this week while I have had some time off I have been playing with some recipes to satisfy my sweet tooth.  Here is the easy pseudo Paleo Berry Crisp:

 Ingredients:

2 packages of frozen berries of your choice
¼ c honey
¾ c almond meal (can be purchased at Trader Joe’s)
½ c cashew meal (made my own in my food processor, can omit and just use almond meal)
¾ tsp cinnamon
½ c butter

Put frozen berries in a square glass dish and drizzle a little bit of honey on top.  In a bowl combine the honey, nut meal and cinnamon.  Cut in butter until mixture is crumbly; then scatter over fruit.

Bake in an oven preheated to 350 degrees 45 minutes – 1 hour or until berries are bubbly and topping is crisp.  Enjoy without guilt, the CrossFit Scottsdale Coaching team did on Monday night during our staff meeting :)

Weekend Recipe #2-Chipotle Lime Bacon-Wrapped Shrimp

Ingredients

  • 12 large, raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • Zest from 1 lime
  • Juice from one lime (about 2 Tbsp)
  • 1/4 teaspoon chipotle powder (or more to taste)
  • 6 strips thin bacon, cut in half (12 pieces)
  • Skewers (for grilling) or toothpicks (for oven)

Method

1 Mix together in a small bowl the lime zest, lime juice, olive oil, and chipotle powder. Put the shrimp in the lime chipotle mixture; make sure each piece is well coated.

2 Spread the bacon pieces out over several layers of paper towels on a microwave-safe plate. Cover with another layer of paper towel. Microwave on high until the bacon fat begins to melt but the bacon is still pliable, about 1 1/2 minutes.

3 Prepare grill on high, direct heat (if grilling) or preheat the oven to 450°F.

4 Working one at a time, wrap a half piece of microwaved bacon around each piece of shrimp. If you are grilling, thread the shrimp onto long, flat skewers (flat skewers make turning the shrimp on the grill easier). If you don’t have flat skewers, I’ve used two thin bamboo skewers (soaked in water for 30 minutes beforehand) to the same effect. If you are using the oven, secure each the bacon onto the shrimp with toothpicks. Place the bacon-wrapped shrimp on a slotted baking pan (lined with foil inside for easy cleaning). Brush remaining lime chipotle mixture on the outside of the bacon-wrapped shrimp.

5 Grill uncovered for 5 to 7 minutes on each side, or bake in the oven for 10-14 minutes, until shrimp is pink and the bacon is crisp.

Makes 12 pieces.
