Mediterranean Shrimp Skillet

Quick and easy Mediterranean Shrimp made in a skillet with just 8 fresh, basic ingredients. A deliciously flavorful dinner recipe that happens to be low-carb, keto, whole30, and paleo.

Mediterranean style food is nearly impossible to beat with its big bold fresh flavors, lots of color, and ease of preparation.

Just take, for instance, my Mediterranean Salmon in Parchment Paper, Crispy Mediterranean Chicken Salad, Mediterranean Quinoa Salad, and more!

So zesty, so sultry, so flavorful…always crowd-pleasing and taste bud delight-ing.

Mediterranean Shrimp Skillet - a healthy meal that comes together in 20 minutes!

What I love about this meal, aside from how it makes my mouth water profusely is the fact that it only requires one skillet and less than 20 minutes to prepare.

Seriously, you’ll be amazed at how quickly this gem comes together!

Let’s dive right in!

Greek Potato Salad (Paleo, Whole30)

Greek potato salad made with jewel yams, kalamata olives, sun-dried tomatoes, dill and fresh parsley. This fresh, zesty potato salad with cider vinaigrette is a great go-to for all summer gatherings!

Potato salad. What team are we on? 

Team Traditional where lots of mayo and eggs are involved for creamy bliss, or Team Zesty with lighter dressing and more of a briny, vinaigrette flavor?

True to my Gemini-ic nature, I play for both teams.

I do try to keep my potato salads on the lighter end of the spectrum, but if a fully leaded potato salad happened to crash land in front of my face, I wouldn’t dare say no.

This recipe happens to be a nice amalgamation of the two. The dressing is creamy but not overly so, and contains plenty of tangy, briny elements for big bold flavor.

For this rendition of potato salad, I use jewel yams. Have you made potato salad using yams or sweet potatoes before? I’m on board. 

They definitely taste sweet, so if you’re looking for a more classic flavor and texture, stick with red potatoes or Yukon gold.

The dressing is a combination of avocado oil mayonnaise, avocado oil (or olive oil), cider vinegar, garlic, stone ground mustard, dried dill, and fresh parsley. We toss in some chopped kalamata olives and sun-dried tomatoes for that lovely je ne sais quois to yield even bigger flavor, fun texture and ease of transportation to somewhere Mediterranean.

Greek Potato Salad - a healthier potato salad recipe with cider vinaigrette, sun-dried tomatoes, kalamata olives, dill and parsley - an amazing side dish recipe for picnics and BBQs

Two of my favorite things about potato salad is it can easily be made in parts (think: cook the potatoes ahead of time and/or make the dressing in advance), and it saves super well! In fact, it typically tastes even better the following two days after it is made.
