Every shrimp-based paleo recipe I’ve tried has ended up exceeding my expectations in every way. Take this recipe for bacon wrapped jalapeno shrimp skewers for example. You get that salty, smokey flavor from the bacon with the mild sweetness from the shrimp, plus some jalapeno strips add some heat and flavor as well. This dish is a great way to get some lean protein in, along with your heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids and other essential vitamins.
