Submitted by: DAWNEDONU

Introduction

Spicy shrimp and scallops, low cal, low carb but not low on taste. Spicy shrimp and scallops, low cal, low carb but not low on taste.
Number of Servings: 2

Ingredients

    4 oz raw scallops
    4 oz raw shrimp
    10 oz bag of spinach (I prefer organic baby spinach)
    1 can Rotel Tomatos and Green Chillis (I prefer their original or chunky variety)

Tips

Feel free to add additional garlic, red pepper flakes or the milder version of Rotel. You can also serve this with some garlic toast, crusty bread or with a side of couscous if you want to add more carbs. Enjoy!


Directions

Empty can (don't drain) of Rotel into large sautée pan and heat until simmering and until some of the liquid begins to evaporate.

While heating Rotel, rinse scallops and shrimp well. Add them to the simmering Rotel. Continue to simmer for 2-3 minutes with lid on, then remove lid and stir. Cover and simmer another 2-3 mintues. Both the scallops and shrimp take only about 5 minutes to cook, depending on their size. They should both firm up and loose their pinkish tint (although it will be hard to see due to the tomato color).

While those items are simmering, wash spinach and steam until just slightly wilted. (about 3-5 minutes). Drain off excess water if necessary.

When the seafood mixture is done, divide up into 2 equal portions. It may be a little "wet" so it may be best to serve seafood mixture with a slotted spoon. Ladle over spinach and enjoy!

Serving Size: Makes 2 large servings of approximately 4 oz shrimp/scallops, 5 oz of spinach (uncooked) plus sauce.
