Coconut Shrimp

Coconut Shrimp with spicy mayo. Super simple. thaw frozen shrimp. Dunk in egg then in coconut flour/coconut mix. Make sure pan is hot and coconut oil is sizzling. Fry about 2min on each side.

Mayo is one cup grape seed oil, one egg and the juice from 1/2 a lemon. Add Cajun spice if you like it hot. The key to mixing the mayo is using a glass jar. It whips up in about 1 minutes if you mix it in glass.

This is one of my favorite high protein, fat and fibre meals. Enjoy!

Thanksgiving Side Dish: Bacon and Chive Sweet Potato Biscuits

From PaleoOMG
Prep time: 
Cook time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 12
  • 1 large sweet potato or yam (equivalent to 2 cups mashed)
  • 3 tablespoons Coconut Flour
  • 3 eggs, whisked
  • 6-8 strips of bacon, diced
  • leftover rendered fat from bacon
  • 3-4 tablespoons chives, thinly diced
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Preheat oven to 415 degrees.
  2. Pork holes in your sweet potato with a fork.
  3. Place in oven and bake for 30-40 or until soft.
  4. Once the sweet potato is done baking, turn oven down to 375 degrees.
  5. When you sweet potato is almost done cooking, place your diced bacon into a skillet and brown until crispy. Then place your cooked, crispy bacon on a plate covered with a paper towel to soak up the excess fat. The fat that is left behind in the pan, you will use in your biscuits.
  6. When your sweet potato is done, peel and place in a bowl and mash with a fork.
  7. Then add in your eggs and mix well with your sweet potato. Then add your in your bacon fat and mix well.
  8. Then your dry ingredients: coconut flour, baking powder, garlic powder, and salt and pepper.
  9. Finally add your diced cooked bacon and chives. Mix thoroughly
  10. Now line a baking sheet with parchment paper and use a large spoon to drop your biscuits on the sheet, shaping them as needed. Try to make them all equal in size so they cook the same.
  11. Place in oven and bake for 22-27 minutes.
  12. Let rest.
  13. Top with some melted grass fed butter. You don’t have to, since it’s not paleo, but I did it, and it was delicious. Trust me.
If you don’t use bacon/bacon fat, add ¼ cup of coconut oil, melted.

Sweet Potato Latkes

"My boys love Sweet Potato Hash for breakfast but frankly, I’m kind of tired of it, so last weekend I decided to make my pile of freshly grated potatoes into sweet potato pancakes, or latkes if you will. We topped the savory sweet cakes with bacon and fried eggs.  Yum.
If you are looking for a way to fill up your kids in the morning, or if your trying to get them excited about eating paleo, there’s nothing like a sweet potato based breakfast fried in coconut oil to delight their taste buds."

Sweet Potato Latkes
5 cups grated sweet potato
2 eggs
2 tablespoons onions, minced
1 teaspoon cinnamon
Sea salt and black pepper to taste.

Mix all ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Heat a griddle or skillet over medium heat and melt a spoonful of coconut oil.  Take small handfulls of the potato mixture and drop onto the hot griddle or skillet and press down gently into little “cakes”.  Cook for 3-5 minutes on each side or until golden brown and crispy and the potatoes are done all the wat through. Top with fried eggs and bacon if you so desire. Makes 12 latkes.
