This recipe is perfect for a quick dinner fix during the week or a nice weekend dinner with friends. The shrimp needs to be marinated which turns into the perfect excuse to make more delicious and nutritious side dishes. Seafood is very beneficial for people with diabetes as it’s an excellent source of protein and has omega 3 fatty acids that help with cardiovascular health.

1/4 tsp. crushed red pepper

1/4 tsp. salt, or to taste

1 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley



  • Combine lemon juice, wine, extra-virgin olive oil and garlic in a medium bowl. Add shrimp and toss to coat.
  • Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 15 minutes, tossing occasionally. Drain well, reserving marinade.
