Chipotle Shrimp Tacos Recipe – 4 Smart Points

Chipotle Shrimp Tacos

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!

Moroccan Spiced Shrimp Over Garbanzo Bean Salad – 4 Smart Points

Moroccan Spiced Shrimp Over Garbanzo Bean Salad

With the beautiful summer weather we’ve been having, my husband has been outside grilling food on a very regular basis. And today’s recipe for Moroccan Spiced Shrimp Over Garbanzo Bean Salad was actually inspired by 5 year old who LOVES shrimp! On a recent beach excursion, we stopped to have lunch at a local, seaside restaurant, and my daughter was begging to order anything with shrimp. We opted to get her this dish, and she absolutely loved it. I tried my best to replicate the version from the restaurant, and I’m pretty pleased with the results…it turned out delicious and very light at just 4 Smart Points per serving. Of course, the final approval came from the harshest critic, my little girl herself, and she vehemently approved. So if you are looking for a new grilling recipe to try this summer, get this one on your menu ASAP!

Asian Shrimp Stir Fry – 6 Smart Points

Asian Shrimp Stir Fry

I’m not a huge fan of shrimp, but I do try to cook it every once in a while. As usual, I fell back on an Asian inspired shrimp stir fry. I’m someone who thinks you really can’t go wrong with stir fry veggies and some really delicious Asian seasonings. This one really exceeded my expectations. For me, the sweet chili sauce was what made this a little different than my normal stir fry. For my normal stir fry I use soy sauce, sesame oil and rice vinegar. I didn’t want to add the really rich and dark flavor of the hoisin, but the sweet chili sauce added a really delicious flavor without overpowering the flavor of the whole dish. I’m not a fan of spicy foods, but the sweet chili sauce adds just a little bit of spice to really bring the whole dish alive. The shrimp is light and a great source of healthy, omega fatty acids. Shrimp is also a great source of lean protein, and the crisp-tender vegetables are a perfect complement to the succulent shrimp.

Broiled Miso Ginger Salmon Recipe – 6 Smart Points

Broiled Miso Ginger Salmon

This Miso Ginger Salmon is one of my most favorite dishes at a local Japanese restaurant. It’s the perfect blend of salty and tangy, and works like a dream with the slightly sweet and smoky salmon. Ideally, I’d cook this on a grill, but when I’m too busy (or lazy) to head out to my grill, a simple broiling in the oven works fantastically! I love giving the fish a nice charred edge, and marinating the salmon before hand really helps give it excellent flavor. Serve over steamed rice alongside some roasted vegetables or your favorite Asian-style salad.

Thai Stir Fry – 7 Points +

Thai Stir Fry

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.

Chili Lime Shrimp – 4 Points +

Chili Lime Shrimp

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!

Garlic Herb Shrimp – 4 Points +

Garlic Herb Shrimp

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.

Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp Recipe – 7 Points +

Roasted Garlic Cilantro Shrimp

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!
