This dinner was so easy I could make it on a week night – and that is saying a lot! Almost a one pot wonder, if you are looking for high protein and low carb meal, this does the trick and you won’t miss the lack of bread on the plate. Liam loved the shrimp and Cole liked the beans, but we giggled at the fact they thought they were eating mashed potatoes! Make sure to adjust the Blackening seasoning level to you or your kids liking.
