Ingredients for Chimichurri

  • 1 cup parsley — you can also use cilantro instead
  • ¼ cup red onion — chopped
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt — or to taste
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper — or to taste
  • 2 garlic cloves — minced
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • cup + 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar

Ingredients For Shrimp

  • 1 lb 454g uncooked extra-large shrimp — peeled and deveined tail-on
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 2 + 1 tablespoons grass-fed Ghee butter or extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic — minced
  • 1 broccoli — cut into florets


  1. Add all the Chimichurri ingredients in a food processor and process on low. For about 1-3 minutes. Let it rest for about 15 minutes.
  2. In a bowl, add shrimp, salt and pepper. Mix everything well.
  3. In a cast iron skillet add 2 tablespoon of olive oil or grass-fed Ghee butter over medium heat.
  4. Add garlic and sauté for 30 seconds. Add shrimp and sauté for about 4 minutes or until shrimp is cooked through. Be careful to not overcook them, otherwise they will have a rubbery texture. Set aside.
  5. In the same skillet add 1 tablespoon of olive oil and broccoli. Sauté for 5-7 minutes or until it’s tender. Stir occasionally.
  6. Return shrimp back to the skillet, pour the chimichurri sauce into the skillet and mix everything well to combine. Although you can have this recipe on its own, we also love to have this recipe with a side of Whole30 Mashed Cauliflower or this Cauliflower rice. Perfect combination! You should try it. Enjoy!
