Hey guys. I put this dish together last week and want to share it with you. I will make a video of this at my next shoot, but this one was too good to wait to share…
Here are some pics to help walk you through the process:
Starting the meatballs hot will achieve carmelization and rendered fat.
Here is the mise en place of roots: onion, garlic, shallot.
And the Mise of the sea: shrimp, shark and scallops.
“The Shrimp Hits The Pan” as the shark turns from pink to opaque.
Similar in size, but different in color and flavor, this is the addition of the grape toms and bay scallops.
A plopping of Paleo Pesto.
The finished product.

This recipe yielded ten, 5 block portions of protein with a grip of fat and a trace of carbs. Making this and having it ready in your freezer will put you at ease and help you sleep better.
Just do it!

Italian Seafood Curry
“Keep It Paleo!”
Our 40 mini meatballs start as 681g of Italian sausage. After they are cooked, they weigh about 565g, and with each block weighing 28g, we end up with 20 blocks of protein from the meatballs. In addition we have our shrimp. We know that 2oz of shrimp equal one block therefore since we have 2 pounds worth, or 32oz worth, we have 16 protein blocks from the shrimp. Our shark has a starting weight of 454g, but after cooking it ends up weighing around 320g. with 42g equaling one block, we have about 8 blocks from the shark. Finally we have our scallops. We start with 1 pound of them, or 16oz and know 1.5oz equals on block, therefore we have 10 blocks from the scallops. Total we have 74 Protein blocks.
Our carbs are minimal in this recipe, more just adding flavor to the meat and fish as they cook. However we do have a total of 5 carbs. One coming from a combination of the shallot and the 4 cloves of garlic, 3 coming form the onion, and 1 coming from the tomato.
We have a lot of fats in this recipe, but all to make it taste so delicious. We first get 11 blocks from the light coconut milk. Each can is about 13fl oz. We know that 1.2oz of light coconut milk equal one block, therefore we get 11 blocks. Then we have a lot of blocks fro the paleo pesto. See the breakdown below, but you will end up getting about 90 blocks of fat from this!
This is a very protein and fat intensive meal. We have about a 3P/4F ratio going on with our servings. Keep this in mind when serving it out, and remember to add some carbs to bring that carb count up for a balanced meal.
