- 100 grams (3.5 ounces) seafood (any combination of shrimp, scallops, lobster or white fish)
- 1 clove garlic, chopped*
- 2 large Roma tomatoes, chopped
- ¼ tsp onion powder**
- ¼ tsp Creole seasoning
- ⅛ tsp garlic powder**
- ⅛ tsp celery salt
Sauté seafood with chopped garlic over high heat until lightly browned.
Add remaining ingredients and simmer on low heat for 15 minutes.
*You should always mince fresh garlic rather than using pre-minced garlic from the grocery store. Most pre-minced garlic contain preservatives. Be on the safe side... mince your own fresh garlic cloves for the best possible weight loss.
**Check the ingredients of the garlic powder and onion powder, as some brands can contain unallowed ingredients such as -dextrose. Avoid any brand with words ending in -ose, -tol, or -dextrin.
