Paleo Teriyaki Shrimp, An Asian-Glazed Seafood

This Paleo Teriyaki Shrimp has a sweet and savory sauce made with coconut aminos, ginger, and sweetened with maple syrup. There’s something about teriyaki sauce that speaks to everyone. It is so simple to make and I really don’t know too many people who don’t like it. So, in my eyes, its important to have a really good teriyaki recipe on hand. It’s nice to know that when tasked with cooking for a group, you have an easy, go to recipe that can be translated into any meat. Literally any meat, like our Paleo Teriyaki Salmon! So we’re following up our Paleo Teriyaki Shrimp recipe with a 2 part recipe block today to cover a few of our bases. Enjoy!

NOTE: Shrimp can go from great to rubbery very quick. Once the shrimp look like they’re pink about halfway through, flip them and then be prepared. They should be taunt, with a little give, but not hard. Hard = Rubberband.

Why are the simple things so difficult sometimes? Like happiness. I feel like that shouldn’t be too hard to achieve. Angel was very unhappy at his standard 9-5 job and now that he’s doing his own business, the pattern is seemingly repeating itself. Sometimes I pray that this is just a little lull, as he’s been in such a good mood lately. I just want things to work out for him so badly that it stresses me out! At least he’s trying to accomplish his goals and dreams – and for that alone, I’m proud of him. I just hope he can figure out his rhythm so he can relax a little!
