Rum, shrimps, pineapple...Just a few of the great flavors in this dish that remind you of a relaxing Summer vacation in the Islands :)
I often adjust one of my recipes ( Recipe #367464 ) that I posted a while ago. But since it doesn't really resemble the original anymore I thought I'd post it as a seperate recipe.
I never really measure when I cook, so these measurements are only estimates. You have to adjust the amounts depending on how spicy or sweet you like your shrimps. I get the best results using fresh ginger and lime juice but bottled works too.
(Cook time includes marinating time)
The perfect side dish would be Recipe #382390
I found this recipe on a Weight Watchers related website and knew I had to try it. The only non Core ingredient are 4 tablespoons of currants which spread over the entire dish are just 2 points or 1/2 point per serving. For Flex this is 7 points per serving.
I was trying to think of ways to make my OAMC recipes for crock pot use...you know they sell those crock pot box recipes at the grocery now. This is one of the ones I found that work and is simple. There may still be some fiddling but it's pretty good as is. Hope you will give it a try.
Face it...sometimes you do not feel like cooking but your family still feels like eating. Here is a healthy easy recipe that will feed the whole family. It may save your family from fast food the next time you are feeling lazy. It is a spicy, tasty alternative to pizza or burgers. It is also a great quick "homemade" soup to whip up for a pot-luck.
Since my honey and I both work full time, I try to make filling dinners that I don't have to spend hours cooking. This is one of our middle of the week "throw togethers" that turned out to be a favorite. Since it makes quite a bit for two people, we always have enough for lunch the next day.
This recipe really satisfies my craving for Chinese food. I serve it over rice and steamed vegetables on the side. The sauce makes just enough to glaze the chicken. I usually double or even triple the sauce recipe to have enough to pour over our rice and veggies. It is a nice low-fat alternative to the restaurant-style Sesame Chicken.
Double or triple this if you like. It's one of the most low cal, filling, and nutrient-packed of all recipes, and freezes well. Shovel what's left over into Ziplocs, lunch containers, or freezer. Tastes even better with re-heating!
