Cuisine: Italian
Recipe type: Vegetarian Entree
Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • For the marinade:
  • ¼ cup (60 ml) extra virgin olive oil
  • 1½ tablespoons fresh lemon juice (1/2 lemon)
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, finely chopped
  • 1 shallot, finely chopped
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
  • 20 oz. (600 g) uncooked large shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 10 oz. (300 g) organic baby bella mushroom caps
  • 10 oz. (300 g) organic large grape tomatoes
  • 6 oz. (180 g) organic rucola (arugula), washed and drained
Instructions
  1. Place all marinade ingredients in a medium bowl; mix well. Add the shrimp and stir thoroughly to evenly coat the shrimp. Cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, stirring 1-2 times.
  2. Wash the vegetables, pat dry and set aside.
  3. Heat the grill (indoor or outdoor) according to manufacturer’s instructions.
  4. Using metal or previously water soaked wooden skewers, alternately thread the mushrooms, shrimp and tomatoes.
  5. Grill the skewers 2 minutes per side, basting with the marinade for the first two minutes only.
  6. Divide the rucola among the four dinner plates. Place two skewers on each plate and serve. This dish tastes best when the shrimp and vegetables are removed from the skewers and mixed in with the rucola.

The nutritional analysis assumes 50% marinade consumption.

Gushers vs Tricklers


"Gushers" are quickly-digested carbohydrates that cause a rapid rise in blood glucose and fuel appetite.

"Tricklers" are slowly-digested carbohydrates that are gradually released into the bloodstream and sustain satiety. These are the good carbs.
