Frozen Shrimp - very easy, very fast, very lean!

Recommended Posts

Guest LeeBeeJeebies

One of my favorite (and quick) seafood dishes is just frozen shrimp! I take the pre-cooked frozen small shrimp, and I pour about a cup or so into a frying pan (no oil or anything!). I heat up the shrimp, and all of the ice on the shrimp becomes water. I let it cook in its water, stirring it every so often. Just as the water evaporates, I add some soy sauce (zero points!), salt, and pepper, and pretty soon I have a nice [tasty] cup of shrimp.

 

1/2 cup of shrimp is 1 point. PLUS it's a filling food.

 

I usually eat about a cup full. It's such a nice snack or side dish.

Also, pre-cooked frozen shrimp comes in the jumbo size. I LOVE to eat this chilled. You pour some into a bowl, let cool water run over it (if it's still frozen), and stir it every once in a while so that the they become unstuck. About five minutes later, the shrimp has defrosted, and it's ready to eat!

 

I don't even dip it in cocktail sauce! I just love it plain! Such a healthy (filling) snack!

You can also toss a few frozen uncooked shrimp into any chicken soup recipe. The shrimp flavors the soup nicely, it cooks in about three minutes so toss it in at the last minute or so.

Got the frozen cooked shrimp and can't wait to try this. I love shrimp and have hardly EVER had fried shrimp so I don't crave it.
