This Shrimp, Bell Pepper and Onions Skillet is a delicious low-carb and gluten-free meal that’s super quick and easy to make and it’s loaded with flavour. It’s ready in 15 minutes and it’s great as leftover too.
These past few days have been very crazy for me. On one side I’m very excited with our trip to Europe next week. My husband has to go to England for work and we decided to take advantage of this opportunity and visit a new country on this beautiful continent. We’re going to spend one week and a half in England and another one week and a half in Portugal. Wow three weeks in Europe! It’s so cool!
And on the other hand, I haven’t been feeling very well these past few days because I have an annoying inflammation of my right eye. It’s nothing very serious and I’m already being medicated, but it hurts a bit. I’m feeling much better and I believe by the end of the week I’ll be 100% good! Hopefully!
Even though I wasn’t feeling very well I still cooked, but I chose to cook easy and quick meals. I made my Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet, my 5-ingredient Chicken zucchini Boats, my Cauliflower Fried “Rice” and this Shrimp, Bell Pepper and Onions Skillet I’m sharing with you today. All easy recipes that don’t require lots of ingredients and not time consuming.
I love this recipe because even if you don’t have bell peppers or onions, you can still make this Shrimp, Bell Pepper and Onions Skillet with other veggies of your preference such as green beans and asparagus. You don’t have any excuse to not try this recipe during your busy week.
