Dieting does not mean compromising taste. When I diet I love to eat shrimp for the low calories combined with high protein. Adding some bold and hot spices make shrimp a hearty meal that satisfies. This is an easy recipe with big flavor. Pair with whole grain rice and your favorite veggies for a complete, healthy meal. Use the leftovers to toss on a salad for lunch the next day. This recipe is also great because it is so low in calories, you can eat more and feel full. I know you will add this to your go-to diet menu.
