  • 1 pound shrimp, fresh or thawed and deveined
  • Coconut oil (enough to cover pan plus 1 extra tablespoon)
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice plus 1 lemon sliced and seeds removed
  • 1 cup olives, any variety and pitted
  • 1 tablespoon capers
  • 1/2 tablespoon dried oregano
  • Dash of dried parsley
  • Salt and pepper to taste, optional


  1. In a large sauté pan, melt the oil and add the sea salt. Then add the shrimp. Cook on a medium heat for about 3-5 minutes, or until the shrimp has deepened in color (it will also shrink some). Once cooked, use a spoon to scoop out excess liquid so only enough liquid remains to cover the bottom of the pan. Then add a tablespoon of olive oil or coconut oil to prevent burning.
  2. Next add the lemon juice, sliced lemon, pressed garlic, olives, and capers. Cook about 5-6 minutes on medium heat.
  3. Stir in parsley, oregano, and black pepper. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
  4. For tastiest results, consume within 24 hours.


  • If you’d like to reduce the saltiness of the capers, then rinse them slightly prior to added them to the sauté.
  • A mixture of black, green, and Kalamata olives are perfect for this dish. Add more as desired.
  • Yield is an approximation and will depend on size of shrimp and whether this dish is served atop another food, such as cauliflower rice, veggies, or veggie noodles.
