For the shrimp:

  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined (we love Fish Fixe)
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup cilantro, finely chopped (plus more for garnish)
  • 1 lime, juice and zest
  • Sea salt and pepper

For the sauce:

For the rest of the bowls:

  • 4 cups cauliflower, riced
  • 1 tbsp avocado oil (or for more flavor use bacon grease or lard)
  • Sea salt and pepper
  • 1 cup coleslaw mix (green + purple cabbage + carrots)
  • 2 avocados, sliced
  • Lime wedges (optional garnish)
  • 1 jalapeño, sliced into thin rounds (optional garnish)


  • Peel and devein shrimp if you didn't buy it that way and pat dry. 
  • Chop cilantro and zest and juice lime. Set aside and make sauce. Place sauce in the fridge until you serve. Rice cauliflower in a food processor or with a hand grater if you didn't buy it pre-riced. 
  • Heat a medium skillet over medium heat and add 1 tbsp of avocado oil (or bacon grease or lard). Place cauliflower rice in skillet and cook for about 5 minutes until tender. Turn down to low and season with sea salt and pepper, to taste. 
  • Heat a large skillet over medium heat and add 1 tbsp avocado oil. Add shrimp to pan and cook undisturbed for about 2 minutes. Flip and cook for another 2-3 minutes, until pink and cooked through. Turn off heat and add 1 tbsp of avocado oil, chopped cilantro, lime zest and juice and generous pinches of sea salt and pepper. Toss to coat shrimp. 
  • Put your bowls together, start with a bed of cauliflower rice, add some coleslaw mix, shrimp, chopped cilantro, avocado slices, optional lime wedges and jalapeño. Drizzle sauce over everything and enjoy!
