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.

Tacos are one of the simplest dishes to make when you’re in a hurry. However, often times pre-made taco seasoning can be filled with unnecessary and unhealthy ingredients. Thankfully, homemade taco seasoning is simple to make and can be stored for future meal prep.
Here’s a simple and quick taco seasoning recipe. Make your life easy by making multiple batches and storing for future meals.
1.5 tablespoon paprika
2 teaspoons cayenne pepper (substitute paprika if no spice is desired)
1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon onion powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Mix it all together.
We told you it was simple! Use this seasoning for tacos, fajitas and even barbecue rub. It’s also a great back-up for when you run out of your pre-made seasoning because you most likely have these spices already stocked in your spice cabinet.
If a sushi roll and a lox bagel where to merge into one delicious bite sized Paleo snack, I think this might just be it!
This super simple wrap that makes an excellent healthy lunch or perfect Paleo appetizer is made with just 4 ingredients: a coconut wrap, lox, avocado and kale.
Better yet, each ingredient is jam-packed with goodness, such as fiber, vitamins and essential oils. It truly is clean-eating at its finest – ideal for the start of the New Year!
1 Coconut Wrap (we love Julian Bakery Paleo Wraps)
1/2 an avocado, sliced into thin strips
1/4 cup kale
3 to 4 slices of lox (fillet of brined salmon)
Place the coconut wrap on a plate.
Starting with the avocado, place thin strips down the middle of the wrap.
Then put a layer of kale and lox on top of the avocado layer.
Starting on one empty side of the wrap, roll the wrap over the center toppings, towards to the empty side, as tightly as possible. (Think sushi rolling and you’ll be in business!)
Once the wrap is tightly rolled, use a sharp knife to slice it into bite-sized pieces and serve chilled.

“Devils on Horseback” is a very fancy (and somewhat odd) name for the decadent little appetizer otherwise referred to as “bacon wrapped dates.”
In writing this post I did some research on where this now popular appetizer got its name, but it seems there is no clear answer – just a number of fables with not much evidence to back them up.
Regardless of their name, these little devils are so delicious you might just catch yourself making them two days in a row…or at least that’s what tends to happen when I make them!
3 strips bacon, cut in half
6 dates, sliced in half
6 thin slices of a filling of your choice – fillings we love include apple, pear, cooked yam slices, or for those who indulge in grass-fed cheese, that’s a great option as well!
Pre-heat the oven to 425 degrees F.
On a cutting board or prepping plate, make “sandwiches” with the dates, placing the filling of your choice between two date halves.
Then place one date “sandwich” on each slice of bacon.
Roll each strip of bacon around the date “sandwich” to form the bacon wrapped dates, and ideally hold each one in place with an oven-friendly skewer or toothpick.
Once the oven has reached 425 degrees F, place the baking sheet with the bacon wrapped dates in the oven and bake for 15 to 20 minutes, until the bacon is well cooked.
Remove the baking tray from the oven and place each bacon wrapped date on a serving plate.
Enjoy while warm.
As Nick Offerman said,
“You know, it’s hard to beat bacon at any time of the day.”
