Diva In The Kitchen: Bangin Good Shrimp

A couple weeks ago, Kimberly over at Fab Finds Under $50 tweeted about a yummy shrimp meal she made for dinner.  It combines Thai Sweet Chili Sauce, Sriracha, and light mayo to create a tasty sauce/dressing.  I LOVE Thai flavors and this is a Weight Watcher friendly meal.  One serving is 5 points and about 215 calories.

I served the dressed shrimp over a bed of mixed herb greens and diced tomatoes.  We didn't have a lot of lettuce left, so I also made some jasmine rice and stir fry broccoli and snap peas to go with it.  It was a terrific and tasy meal!  Even Mr.Diva commented about how pretty it was.  The combo of colors on the shrimp was quite lovely.

 Stir Fry Broccoli and Snap Peas

I just made this up as I cooked and it was a last minute choice to add this side, so I apologize for the lack of measurements.  I don't really cook with measurements unless I'm baking.
I bought the big bag of chopped cabbage, broccoli, and peas in the salad section.  Heat veggie oil in a pan and add veggies once oil is very hot.  Stir often.  Once the veggies start to soften just a bit, add just a bit of soy sauce and sesame oil to taste. (You could also add rice wine vinegar, chili paste, or whatever you like)
Once the veggies were soft, but with a slight bit of crunch to them, I put them in a bowl, sprinkled them with Chinese Five Spice, and tossed them well.

When I served it up, I used some of the extra shrimp sauce to drizzle over them.  







Jasmine Rice
With the rice, just make it according to the package instructions.  I use chicken or veggie broth instead of water.  I also added a bit of sesame oil, soy sauce, curry powder, minced garlic, and red pepper flakes.  When I was ready to serve dinner, I mixed in chopped scallions to the fluffed up rice and drizzled the extra shrimp sauce over it as well.


Enjoy!
