Shrimp and Pineapple Curry Recipe {Gluten Free and Paleo Recipe}

I love the look of pineapples. They are so strange looking and you would never know something so delicious and juicy is inside. Tonight, I was craving soup so I made this delicious, super easy, and super fast Shrimp and Pineapple Curry over Cauliflower Rice.

3T Vegetable Oil
1 Can Red Curry Paste
1 Can Coconut Milk
1.5 Cups Water
1 Lb Peeled Raw Shrimp
1 Whole Pineapple Cubed
1.5 Tbsp Gluten Free Fish Sauce
1.5 Tbsp Sugar
Limes

Directions:
1. Heat cooking oil in a small pot
2. Add the curry paste and stir for about 30 seconds. Do not let burn. I have never been able to find curry paste in my local stores so I ordered this one from Amazon:

BBQ Burgers and Unique Gluten Free Buns

When I first found out I couldn’t eat gluten the food I missed the most was definitely bread. Especially warm, chewy sourdough bread. So I tried all of the gluten free bread, buns, muffins I could find between Whole Foods and Trader Joe’s. Most of it was bland, super dry, tasted like cardboard, didn’t stay together and definitely was not worth the calories. I have since started making my own gluten free bread and some awesome brazilian cheese biscuits I will definitely be sharing the recipes for. During the week it’s hard to find the time to make bread, biscuits, or anything other than a quick dinner. Sometimes you just want to fire up the grill and have a simple burger. When I make burgers I like to use some very non-traditional items for buns. Of course at In-N-Out and most restaurants, you can get your burger made protein style with a lettuce bun. Lettuce is ok if that’s the only option. But i’d rather go bunless than have hot from the burger, slimy lettuce stuck to my burger – ewe gross. So at home I use portabella mushrooms and peppers as buns. Here is how you do it.

What you need:
3 Jalapeños, diced
4 Slices of Bacon, chopped
2 Lbs. of Ground Beef
1 TBSP Fresh Ground Pepper
1 TBSP Minced Garlic
Bell Peppers, tops removed, seeded, and sliced in half
Portabella Mushrooms, stems removed

Place jalapenos, bacon Ground Beef, Garlic and Pepper and mix fully in stand mixer

Heat the BBQ to medium and place burgers and mushrooms on grill. I always do the mushrooms top down first. And, put a thumbprint in the middle of your patties so they stay more flat after they are done. Close lid for 3-4 minutes

Flip burgers and mushrooms for another 3-4 minutes. Add peppers for 2 minutes per side.

The peppers are sweet and crispy with lots of flavor after BBQing and WAY better than a cardboard gluten free bun.

My new favorite gluten free bun is the portabella mushroom. I heart them. Lots of flavor and even the texture is more similar to a bun than the peppers. You can even add a slice of pepper with the burger too for more flavor.

There you go! Two awesome super easy, super delicious alternatives to gluten free buns. Happy BBQing!

An easy, quick, nutritious and totally crowd pleasing dessert. Not one time have I made these and not have them be a super big hit.

I promise they will love them without even knowing the health benefits.

What you need:
Bananas sliced in half with skin still on
Honey or agave nectar
Cinnamon

Heat BBQ to medium
Rub honey or agave on bananas
Sprinkle with cinnamon
Place bananas on BBQ skin side down and lid closed for 2 minutes
Turn over and bbq tops with lid closed for 2 minutes
Remove and serve.
