Turmeric-Garlic Shrimp with Cabbage-Mango Slaw

Turmeric-Garlic Shrimp with Cabbage-Mango Slaw sounds complicated, but it's really quite simple. Flavor-packed shrimp tossed with turmeric, red pepper flakes, and cumin atop a bed of cooling cabbage slaw makes a healthy but satisfying lunch or dinner. The slaw balances out the spicy shrimp with fresh mango, crunchy cabbage, red onion, tangy lime, and aromatic cilantro. It's spicy, savory, sweet, and sour, yum! Ready in less than 30 minutes, you can whip this up any night of the week. Seafood is such a good choice for a summertime meal—it's cool and succulent. It's an awesome entree shrimp salad, but also could serve as an appetizer salad or even a rich side dish. The family will love this!

Ingredients

  • Tons of flavor in this quick, shrimp dish! The perfect balance of spicy, savory, sweet & sour – and ready in less than 30 minutes.
  • I seasoned the shrimp with turmeric, cumin and red pepper flakes, then gave it a quick saute with garlic and finished it with some fresh lime juice and cilantro.
  • To balance out the heat (it's mild, although you can make it spicier or leave milder to your taste) I served this over a quick slaw with sweet mango, red cabbage and lime juice.
  • My husband gave it two thumbs up! This dish is perfect for most diet restrictions: gluten-free, low-carb, paleo, whole30 and of course weight watcher friendly!
