Rice bowls have always been my favorite healthy-ish go to meal. But what if you’re trying to lighten it up just a bit more?

You’ve gotta try going with a cauliflower rice bowl!

Any chance I have to use these massive shrimp I’ll take it. Other than these looking like tiger shrimp the only way I can find these online is by searching for “colossal shrimp”

They eat just like a lobster tail and go perfect for this cauliflower rice bowl.

I threw these on the grill with a strip of marinated flap meat (used my carne asada recipe)


For the cauliflower rice, you can grate a head of cauliflower on your own, but I opted to buy some pre-grated cauliflower make for making your own rice.

No sense in making things more difficult!

Make the cauliflower rice first and let it sit on the stove on warm with a little lime and cilantro while you throw the steak and shrimp on the grill.

You’ll have dinner ready in around 20 minutes, and with plenty room in your caloric budget for dessert!
