Bestest Sweet Shrimp

Submitted by: DARK_BLUE

Introduction

This sweet and very mildly tangy shrimp recipe is easy and is very low cal (even though the recipe says it's 180 calories per serving, which is about 10 shrimp, everything but the shrimp in this recipe is part of the marinade and burns off on the grill, leaving you with less than 10 calories per shrimp).

Ingredients

    2 lbs 31/40 count of frozen shrimp, raw, unpeeled
    3 tablespoons (9 tsp) champagne or honey mustard
    1/4 cup honey
    5 garlic cloves, pressured
    2 tablespoons lemon juice

    wooden skewers

Directions

Thaw and peel raw shrimp. In a bowl with a lid, combine shrimp, mustard, honey, pressed garlic, and lemon juice. Stir or shake (once lid is on). Let sit for half an hour to 24 hours.

Skewer shrimp. On high heat, cook for 10 minutes on the grill (about 5 minutes a side), or until done (shrimp will be pink). Remove from skewer and serve.

Yields ~8 servings (62-80 shrimp/8 servings = approx. 7-10 shrimp per serving)


Note: Because the marinade burns off on the grill, the calories for the marinade don't count much to your total calorie intake. Each shrimp (31/40 size) is approximately 5 grams when cooked, and each gram of shrimp is worth about a calorie.
32 oz shrimp = about 900 calories
honey mustard, honey, garlic, and lemon juice = about 400 calories

Number of Servings: 8
