Corn Shrimps Nuggets

Today I want to show you another very healthy fast food alternative. Personally, I am not really a fan of chicken nuggets – even when they are high quality. And therefore these here have not so much in common with the classic nuggets. But don’t worry, they are probably a hundred times tastier in return. 🙂

But why are these nuggets so super healthy? On the one hand, we don’t deep fry them, obviously, instead we just roast them in a frying pan. However, the taste result is still phenomenal. On the other hand, the nuggets consist of only four healthy ingredients: Corn, shrimps, oat flour and eggs.

Healthy nuggest for Appetizers, Snacks or the Side

You can make these nuggets not only for dinner or lunch – for example, as a side dish for a salad. They are also, in my opinion, the perfect savory snack or awesome appetizer. Plus, an incredible number of dips go well with these. You could serve them with guacamole, a salsa, or even hummus. Or you can use the incredibly delicious Moroc’n’Roll sauce from Spicenerds (advertising).

Be sure to give this recipe a try. They are way too good to pass up. 🙂
Have fun trying them out and see you for the next recipe.
