With swimsuit season around the corner, you may be thinking about cutting back. Trust me, its no fun eating rabbit food and rice cakes all the time.
That's why I love Shrimp With Tomatoes and Feta Cheese for dinner instead. For under 300 calories a serving, this flavorful protein-rich dinner will keep you from dangerous evening snacking later!
1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined (not bay shrimp)
2 cans diced tomatoes (14.5 oz. each)
1 medium onion, diced
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 T. olive oil
1/4 c. fresh chopped parsley
1 t. fresh minced dill
1/4 t. salt
1/4 t. pepper
3/4 c. crumbled feta cheese
In an oven safe skillet, saute onions in olive oil for about three minutes on the stovetop (over medium heat). Add minced garlic and saute for another minute or two. Stir in 2 cans of tomatoes and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 7-8 minutes.
Remove from heat, and stir in fresh herbs and shrimp. Add salt, pepper and feta cheese.
Place in preheated 425 oven and bake 10-12 minutes.
Enjoy on its own, or over whole grain rice or pasta. "Dieting" never tasted so good!
