Paleo Recipes for Modern Day Cavemen

Shrimp Cocktail

Greetings from Seattle! I’ve been traveling a bit for work but being in this beautiful Pacific Northwest city reminded me of all the fresh seafood available and I had to bring up one of the most simple paleo ideas ever.

This might not be the most gourmet of paleo “recipes” but I had to post because it was a game changer for us during the start of football season and hadn’t occurred to me to do at home until recently. When watching the games, we were so used to snacking on everything – or at least we were. But the chips and junk food went away and crudités ended up being our paleo snack of choice.  A few weeks ago, my husband asked for something other than fruit and veggies to munch on and a lightbulb went off in my head – I actually forgot how simple and satisfying shrimp cocktail could be. I know, silly me… Try it for your football weekends!

Shrimp Cocktail, Paleo, Cavemen Gourmet

Ingredients
Serves 4
2lb large shrimp (de-veined and tail on)

Directions
Bring water to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook for 3-5 minutes, stirring occasionally until shrimp turns pink and curls slightly.  (To make my life easier, I buy shrimp that’s already cleaned and peeled.)

Drain and cool. I wish I could say that it was harder but that’s really it. For the dipping sauce, I had some amazing and natural marinara sauce from the local farmers market so I just added some horseradish. Next time I’ll try to be creative and add things to the water to flavor the shrimp slightly.

Serve chilled. Enjoy!

  1. I love shrimp cocktail! If you ever don’t feel like making your own sauce, you can get Paleo friendly cocktail sauce from Trader Joes.

  2. I saw 77 ounces of shrimp cocktail at Costco today… Wanted to buy it and eat it ALL… I don’t share – and I totally would be able to eat it all. I am a fish HOOVER! All fish fear me more than they do sharks~ LOL
