New shrimp recipe posted; Up early this morning.
Last night I made a new shrimp recipe that Lisa discovered (which I modified slightly): Grilled Shrimp with Brown Sugar and Cayenne Pepper. The amount of brown sugar in this dish is quite small–just enough to balance out the kick provided by the cayenne pepper. A little lime juice adds a nice hint of citrus, while the fresh garlic rounds out this simple, but delicious, recipe.
Prepping this recipe took practically no time at all, and the actual cook time was just a few minutes. This dish weighs in at just 300 calories per serving (1/2 pound of shrimp) and has almost 40 grams of protein. This is one of those dishes that tastes so good you’ll think you’re eating a cheat meal!
I also grilled a few sweet peppers, which I chopped up and mixed with brown rice. This simple little twist to basic brown rice really elevates and transforms the side dish while adding practically no additional calories.
Serve this along with some steamed broccoli and you’ve got an easy to prepare, healthy, low calorie and absolutely delicious meal.
Definitely give this recipe a try, you won’t be disappointed!
I woke up this morning at 3:30 AM, and after tossing and turning for 30 minutes I realized that I was not going to fall back asleep. I’ve got lots of stuff on my mind right now. Good stuff–projects at work, projects around the house and fitness-related activities that I’m excited about. I’ll be talking about the fitness stuff in upcoming blogs this week, and even some of the more physical projects I’ve been doing around the house.
Right now I need to eat, I’m starving. Have a great day!
