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 loaded with flavour. It’s ready in 15 minutes and is great as leftovers!
These past few days have been very crazy for me. On the one hand, I’m very excited about our trip to Europe next week. My husband has to go to England for work, so we decided to take advantage of this opportunity and visit a new country on a beautiful continent. We’re going to spend a week and a half in England and another week and a half in Portugal. Wow, three weeks in Europe! 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 believe by the end of the week that I’ll be 100% good. Hopefully!
Even though I wasn’t feeling very well, I still cooked, but I chose easy and quick meals. I made my Ground Turkey Sweet Potato Skillet, 5-ingredient Chicken Zucchini Boats, 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 are 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 an excuse not to try this recipe during your busy week!
