Baked Shrimp Curry

This is one of my favorite dishes — its simple to prepare, completely versatile and totally yummy! It even won me 2nd place in a recipe contest I entered last year!

Throw in whatever veggies you have on hand — asparagus, more or less bell peppers, broccoli, shredded carrots or cabbage, whatever.  As for the protein you can do any type of seafood or cubed chicken or pork.

For a vegetarian flare, ditch the animal protein and add in a cup of cooked chickpeas instead.

These are the kinds of meals you’ll be able to enjoy in my detox.  Check out the details of the Abundantly Delicious Detox — starts October 5th!
