Herbed Shrimp with Dairy-Free Tzatziki~It's What's for Dinner Weekend Addition

Hubby was in the mood for shrimp, so we tried out this new recipe I found on the autoimmune paleo  blog. The original recipe can be found here.

The recipe was perfect as our youngest is home visiting and recently received the results of her food sensitivity tests back.  She is now on a Dairy Free diet amongst other things!

Super simple to prepare, and a great light meal for the summer months.  We served it alongside microwaved steamed spinach.

Herbed Shrimp with Dairy-Free Tzatziki


2 lbs wild-caught peeled and deveined raw shrimp
1 TBS olive oil
1 1/2 tsp dried parsley flakes
1 1/2 tsp dried oregano flakes
1 tsp dried dill
3/4 tsp sea salt
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 tsp diced white onion
1 recipe Dairy-Free Tzatziki (below)


1. Rinse and dry shrimp well.
2. Heat olive oil in a large deep skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp to the skillet and cook for 4 to 5 minutes until almost cooked through.
3. Add seasonings, garlic, and onion to the shrimp and toss well to coat.  Cook for another 1 to 2 minutes until the garlic and onion are fragrant and the shrimp is pink and cooked through.
4. Serve with Dairy-Free Tzatziki on the side.

Dairy-Free Tzatziki


4 oz plain coconut yogurt
1/4 C minced, peeled and seeded cucumber
2 TBS finely minced white onion
1 TBS finely minced garlic
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp dried dill
1/4 tsp grated lemon zest
1/4 tsp sea salt
1/8 tsp garlic powder


1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients together. For best results, prepare at least 1 hour prior to serving to allow the flavors to marry.

That Tzatziki sauce sounds like it would go with lots of things. Yum! I hope the dairy free diet helps your daughter. A lot of people seem to feel like a brand new person after giving up dairy.

Thanks for the Tzatziki recipe, Lauren. It's one of my favorite things to eat. I usually buy mine at Trader Joes but now I can make my own. Have a great week!
