Shrimp Trio...er...Duo!



Inspired by a back episode of Top Chef, i decided to make a diet friendly shrimp trio. Unfortunately, the shrimp cocktail didn't make it into the photo. But do you really need a recipe for shrimp cocktail anyways? Yeah, i didn't think so. These are Weight Watchers recipes and i have to say, they were DELICIOUS and super light too!

Chile Caribbean Shrimp Skewers
First up shrimp skewers. These were really simple to prepare and cook. I made them on my stove top in a grill pan. I don't know if i used too much red pepper flakes or what, but when i put these suckers in my hot grill pan, i couldn't stop coughing. Thank goodness they were only in the pan for just a few short minutes. They were done in a flash and extremely flavorful.

Next up, a PHENOMENAL fried rice.
Thai rice with pineapple and shrimp
I'm not really a fried rice kind of girl, but how can you go wrong with pineapple and shrimp Thai fried rice? I AM a sucker for just about anything Thai. ;) This recipe did not disappoint, the flavors were light and fresh and made a perfect pairing to the spicy shrimp skewers. This recipe is definitely a keeper. I love love love this rice. Even if you aren't watching your figure, you should totally try this recipe out. :)
