Oh, how I adore these tacos. This quick and easy Chipotle Shrimp Tacos Recipe is not only a perfect weeknight dinner recipe that can be prepared in a pinch, they are incredibly delicious. The rich, smoky chipotle cream sauce is the star of this dish. The amount of chipotles in adobo sauce will affect how spicy these are, so if you can’t take too much heat, stick with just 1 tbsp. However, if you can handle spicy, then add as much as you’d like. I actually doubled the recipe so that I could have some for lunch the next day. One thing to pay attention to is the tortilla size. The ones I used in this recipe were the “slider” size. If you use a larger tortilla, it may add an extra Point. Serve with black beans, and roasted corn on the cob or other roasted veggies for a complete meal. Enjoy!
Pad Thai is a fabulous dish. It’s simple and easy – a wonderful one dish meal. One of the downsides for me, well, actually, there are two. Pad Thai noodles aren’t my favorite, and they tend to make the dish very carb heavy. This incredible Thai inspired stir fry is the answer to that. Skip the rice noodles and just stick with the bean sprouts instead. The key to cooking delicious tofu is to make sure that it’s seasoned well. To do this, you’ll just want to make sure that you let it simmer for quite awhile in the sauce. Then all you have to do is add the shrimp and carrots. I think I’m in love with this one. It’s simple and easy, only one pot is dirtied and it’s full of flavor and nutrients.
I’m someone who is pretty indifferent to seafood. I typically don’t really like seafood – it’s a texture thing. But with the right shrimp, and the right recipe, I’ll go for it. Chili lime is a great combination, and with a bit of ginger and some white wine, I couldn’t resist. The trick was cooking the shrimp a bit before, then making the sauce and finishing them in the sauce. That way the sauce has time to cook down and really meld the flavors together without overcooking the shrimp. Then I just added the shrimp back in and cooked for a couple more minutes, until they were done. I threaded mine on skewers to make it easier to work with. If you’ve got a big enough skillet, that’s an easy way to get all those shrimp to go in and get flipped during cooking without overcrowding or overcooking. It’s also a great way to serve them, since they look beautiful on the skewers. Serve these shrimp with some cilantro rice and a side salad, and it’s a delicious meal that’s low in carbs, high in protein and just plain tasty!
It’s officially fall, folks, and I love getting in the kitchen and whipping up some hearty, soul-warming soups! My husband’s personal favorite is this Healthy Jambalaya Recipe. It is packed with 3 tasty proteins – chicken, shrimp, and sausage. You can choose to make this a tad lighter by subbing out the andouille sausage with some light turkey or chicken sausage, but I’m such a fan of the spicy and flavorful andouille, I’m willing to sacrifice a Point or two for that fantastic flavor. Each ample serving is certain to fill your stomach and and your soul, at just 8 Points +. The easy to follow recipe will have you wanting to make this jambalaya again and again. Enjoy!
Shrimp scampi is a popular restaurant dish. It’s made with garlic and oil or butter then broiled. It’s delicious, don’t get me wrong, but it’s also pretty unhealthy. Anything broiled in butter, doesn’t exactly lend itself to being healthy. However, this garlic herb shrimp is a perfect substitute. It’s delicious and full of flavor, but without the broiling in butter – you’ll love it. I usually saute the shrimp in a skillet, but you can also grill the shrimp. If you’re pining for some pasta to go along with your garlic herb shrimp, add zucchini noodles to it. It’s simple and delicious.
This shrimp salad is a favorite. It’s full of flavor, simple, delicious and perfect for a summer meal. The shrimp are marinated before they’re cooked, so they have a spicy Creole flavor that goes so well with the mild salad. Grilling the asparagus and peppers add flavor and a wonderful look to the salad. Drizzle on the lemon juice to keep everything bright and beautiful. This meal is elegant and will definitely become a family favorite.
Summer is in full swing, and I’m all about healthy and delicious Weight Watchers Grilling Recipe that are quick and easy! This Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Recipe is just the ticket – it’s so fresh and light, yet absolutely bursting with flavor. The roasting of the garlic adds such a wonderful, slightly sweet taste to the sauce, so make sure to NOT skip that step! It’s a bit of extra work, but totally worth it. I also like to take the extra sauce and serve it on the side for dipping, or spoon it over some fresh Italian bread, then place face down on the grill – so incredibly good. For this recipe, I used my cast iron grill pan, but a regular outdoor grill works just as well. Enjoy!
