I can eat sliders by the dozen. There’s something about mini-hamburgers that bring out the “honey badger” in all of us. But that’s not a good thing when you’re eating for a 3 hours straight while watching sports. Here’s a high protein and low fat option that will have you building muscle, without all the guilt.
● 6oz raw shrimp (deveined, peeled)
● Ozery Bakery multigrain slider buns
● ½ cup bell pepper diced
● 1 Roma tomato (slices)
● lettuce leaves
● Kelapo Coconut oil (spray or use ½ tbsp)
● Seasonings: onion powder, garlic powder, pepper, cumin
● Suggested chips substitute: baked beet chips
1. Remove the tails and skin from the raw shrimp. Dry the shrimp with a paper towel so that it is “dry.”
2. Add the shrimp to a blender and pulse blend until it is chunky and thick and sticky.
3. Remove the shrimp from food processor and season with choice of seasonings. Mix using your hands. Form small patties of about 2-3oz.
4. Add Kelapo coconut oil to a skillet and place on medium heat. If you are placing the shrimp on the grill, be sure to grease the rack since the shrimp patties are pretty “sticky.” Place the shrimp sliders on the skillet and cook until the shrimp patties turn pink.
5. Assemble the sliders using a small leaf of lettuce and a slice of Roma tomato. Boom.
Approx macros of 1 slider using 2oz shrimp: 135 calories, 14g protein, 13g carbs, 2g fat.
About the Author
Kevin is a fitness enthusiast out of Dallas, TX. When he saw himself in his friend’s Facebook photo he knew it was time to make a change. He was overweight, felt sluggish and had steadily rising blood pressure. So, he did what many people try to do – he started exercising to try to “out train” a poor diet. He quickly learned through periods of weight cycling that if he was going to accomplish his fitness goals, it would have to be through a steady, healthy diet, complemented by hard work in the gym.
He started studying nutrition and got started cooking! In 2012 Kevin started a small blog to share his meals online in order to build a community around healthy food ideas.
The blog was called Fit Men Cook and it had a simple message and belief system – “Our bodies are built in the kitchen, Sculpted in the gym.”
Kevin firmly believes that healthier food options do not have to be boring. Ever. In fact, they are pretty tasty!
Fit (Wo)Men Cook is the “fit” story of all of us. It is taking your individual success stories and things (in nutrition & fitness) that have worked for you, and sharing those ideas with the masses so we can all grow, improve together. Just everyday people – no matter the fitness level or athletic ability – aiming to live the best life possible through fitness and healthy eating. Are you a Fit (Wo)Men Cook?
