Sadly, I can’t take credit for this awesome recipe, but I’m excited to share the original one and my small changes. Heather Christo is an amazing blogger, mom, chef, published author, wife…all the things. For years I have followed a small band of food bloggers and this amazing lady is one of them. In 2014, she was diagnosed with severe food allergies, along with her darling girls, Coco and Pia. Being the rockstar that she is, she took it in stride. “Turning Lemons into Lemonade, Heather has totally rededicated her passions into creating delicious allergy free recipes that everyone can enjoy without missing a thing!”
I made minor changes, (mainly because I was trying to remember the recipe instead of looking it up) I know, I can be ridiculous. I made the shrimp paste in my nutribullet. I added the shrimp, one whole jalapeno, and a handful of cilantro to the mixer with a squeeze of lemon and lime. It’s an awesome trick for those of you that can’t use egg as a binder. I’m already imagining multiple takes on this recipe.
Anyway, Heather Christo is the bomb diggetty, and so is this recipe. Annnnddddd, buy her new book, Pure Delicious! It’s divine and a little birdy told me it’s been nominated for a James Beard Health Award! Yummy!
