I love Spiced Shrimp – it's a simple, healthy, and quick dinner that everyone loves and can be paired with any side or tossed into a salad. Shrimp is a great Eating Lithe option: four ounces of shrimp have approximately 24 grams of protein and only 112 calories. Shrimp also provides selenium, B12 and D vitamins, and omega-3 fatty acids, so eat up!
Lithe Spice No.1 (available in-studio on Thursday!) is the secret to this simple dish. Since the shrimp only cooks for three minutes on the grill, I plan ahead by prepping my shrimp in the morning.
1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and de-veined
1 teaspoon extra virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon Lithe Spice No.1
1 garlic clove, minced
Cooking spray of your choice
To prepare shrimp, combine 1 teaspoon EVOO, garlic, Lithe Spice No.1, and shrimp in a large bowl; toss well. Thread about 4-5 shrimp onto each of 6 (8-inch) skewers. Place skewers on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes or until done. Don't have a grill? Sautee shrimp in a pan for 5 to 7 minutes, until they turn pink.
