Your Favorite Healthy Recipe Could Win!

I have mentioned in this blog many times about how healthy foods and juices affect our bodies in a positive way. If you are like me, I do a lot of grilling, so I have a lot of healthy recipes just for the grill.

I have come across this contest and wanted to pass the information along.

There is a contest going on over at that gives you a chance to win $400 for your favorite recipe. Even better if you use your barbeque grills for preparation. Please get complete rules by going to

In order to qualify for the $400 grand prize, you must submit your entry URL to Post your favorite recipe in your blog or website and then submit your url. How easy it that?

Here's one recipe I am considering to enter myself. It's super easy and so unbelievably amazing!

Lemon Sauteed Shrimp over Caramelized Fennel

1 lb. uncooked large shrimp, peel and deveined
2 tbsp lemon juice
1 large clove garlic, chopped
1 cup chopped fresh Italian parsley
1/2 tsp grated lemon peel
1/2 tsp salt
3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1 medium fennel bulb, thinly sliced
1 large onion, thinly sliced

In large non aluminum bowl or re-seal able plastic bag, combine shrimp, lemon juice, garlic, lemon peel, parsley and salt. Marinate in refrigerator 15 minutes or longer.

Meanwhile, in 12 inch nonstick skillet, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil over medium heat and cook fennel and onion, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until vegetables are golden. Remove vegetables into a serving platter and keep warm.

Remove shrimp from marinade (discard the marinade). I put the shrimp on skewers or use my grilling frying pan and grill until shrimp are a nice shade of pink. I then remove the shrimp into the serving platter, spooning the warm fennel and onion over the shrimp. Season with fresh ground pepper if desired. Absolutely yummy!

Serves: 4
Prep time: 15 minutes
Marinade time: 15 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes

Something that taste this fantastic takes so little time and is healthy for you. Enjoy!
