Recipe Notes

  • We recommend grilling, pan-frying, or baking your chicken with a generous amount of seasoning. Pat the chicken dry. Rub with sea salt, ground black pepper, and 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder. Either grill or pan-fry for 4 minutes on each side or until cooked through, or bake at 400 degrees °F for 10 minutes or until no pink remains.
  • Cook the shrimp: In a small skillet heat 1 teaspoon oil of choice over medium-high heat. Add in shrimp. Season with sea salt and pepper. Cook for 1-2 minutes on both sides, or until pink and fully cooked.
