You may have noticed by now that I’m a big fan of appetizers! Anything small that can be munched on in-between meals or before a delicious dinner is right up my alley, and this shrimp and pear skewer appetizer is no exception.
The below recipe makes 1 skewer. Double, triple or quadruple as desired!
2 x 1 tablespoon coconut oil
1 garlic clove, chopped finely
¼ pear, sliced into 4 thin strips
1 tablespoon raw agave nectar
In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the shrimp and garlic and cook until the shrimp are firm (about 4 minutes on each side), then remove from the heat.
In a small saucepan, heat the other tablespoon of coconut oil over medium heat.
Add the pear strips and agave.
Stir gently to caramelize the pear in the agave nectar and cook until the pear is soft (approximately 1 minute.)
Using a wooden skewer stick, skewer one shrimp, followed by two pear slices, another shrimp, the last two pear slices and then the final shrimp.
Easy and impressive 😉
