  • 46 cups riced cauliflower
  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped


  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, tail removed and de-veined
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • Sea salt, to taste
  • Fresh cilantro, chopped


  1. Turn on the broiler to low heat and line a stone baking pan with unbleached parchment paper.
  2. Prepare the riced cauliflower by using one of these options.
  3. Place the cauliflower in the oven under the broiler for 4-5 minutes and then remove and stir. Place back under the broiler for another 2-3 minutes until softened and heated through. When done and removed from the oven, drizzle with a little lemon juice and chopped cilantro.
  4. While the “rice” is under the broiler, put a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil and the shrimp. Saute for about 3-4 minutes. When the shrimp begins to turn pink, drizzle the orange juice, lime juice over the shrimp. Add the garlic and sea salt and continue to saute until fully cooked.
  5. Serve the shrimp with a large spoon of cilantro lime cauliflower rice. Top with sea salt and cilantro, as desired.
