Paleo Chicken & Stir Fry
Servings: 4

1 pound of frozen shrimps, thawed
1 pound of frozen scallops, thawed
1 cup fresh basil leaves
2 celery stalks, sliced
2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
1 small onion, chopped
10 mushrooms, finely minced
10 snow peas, deveined
1 red pepper bell, chopped
2 tablespoon clarified butter (or ghee)
Coconut oil
Salt and pepper to taste


In a large pan, put onions and garlic in coconut oil over medium heat until they become transparent.
Add shrimps and scallops and season with salt and pepper. Sear for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. Reserve.
Sauté the remaining vegetables in the same pan for about 5 to 6 minutes
Return scallops and shrimps to the pan, stirring delicately to combine. Add the fresh basil, sprinkle with lemon juice on medium heat for another 2 to 3 minutes. Season with salt and pepper if needed.
You could easily substitute the seafood for raw salmon cubes or precooked lobster tails for this recipe. Other fresh herbs such as parsley, chives and oregano would also be delicious for this recipe.
