This meal is truly a testament to just how far vegan food has come!! This cruelty-free vegan shrimp dish looks like it takes hours to prepare, but as Erin demonstrates in the video, it is actually quite simple and easy to prepare.

When Erin first went vegan she thought for sure she would never have seafood again.  Well, she was right…no more animal-based seafood.  But now it is just as easy to enjoy a flavorful seafood dish, without the cruelty!  The vegan products available today, like vegan shrimp, are simply amazing, and much healthier for you in the long-run than the non-vegan versions.  If you are a fan of seafood, I highly recommend you try out this recipe.  WOW your friends and family with this delicious and impressive meal. They will not be disappointed.
