what’s going on guys and welcome back to
the fit men cook kitchen today’s video
is a lot of fun because we are making a
so it spike meal prep now a lot of y’all
outside of the US may not get that
reference but those of us here in the
u.s. you should because that reference
is a part of music television history
comment below if you get the reference
alright and now back to the recipe video
growing up one of my favorite foods and
still today is shrimp and grits or fried
fish and grits it’s traditionally served
with a blacken or cajun shrimp or a
fried catfish serve with savory and
buttery grits that are made even
creamier with a whole bunch of cheese it
is one of those comfort foods that’s
like love at first bite it’s just that
darn good the only downside to this dish
though is while it’s very tasty it’s
loaded with a bunch of simple carbs and
also saturated fats so today we are
taking up the challenge to transform
this dish by giving it a calorie
makeover we’re gonna aim to reduce the
calories by about 50%
as well as the carbohydrate we’re gonna
swap out the grits and replace it with
cauliflower and we’re gonna use a Greek
yogurt cream cheese as the base for the
grits so it’s still just very rich and
creamy but without all the calories
we’re gonna aim to do all this without
compromising the flavor alright guys
let’s get to it
spray broccolini with a little olive oil
then add a little sea salt and pepper
roast in the oven for 10 minutes at 375
then season shrimp with smoked paprika
cumin sage oregano cayenne and a pinch
of pepper rubbing the seasonings then
spray our skillet with a little olive
oil toss in the shrimp and cook through
about six to eight minutes add
cauliflower to a food processor and
pulse blend to create grits empty dome
cheesecloth or a heavy duty paper towel
to squeeze out all the excess moisture
this helps the grits to be even creamier
add olive oil to a skillet along with
garlic and red onions caramelize on low
heat for about three minutes pour in
chicken broth and Greek yogurt cream
cheese or reduced fat cream cheese chop
it up stir and bring it to a simmer
once it’s smooth sterling a drop of
arrowroot starch add in the cauliflower
grits and stir grate in some Monterey
Jack cheese then mix and meld everything
together garnished with cracked pepper
and chives
add the grits to your meal container
then the blackened shrimp and roasted
broccolini boom alright that’s it for
