Recipe by Lisa in Canada
I love the classic shrimp diane recipe - except for all of the fat and calories. This recipe doesn't taste exactly like the original, but considering the differences in nutritional value, I'd say it's a pretty darn good substitute! This recipe is also surprisingly quick and easy - preparing the rice is what takes most of the cooking time. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
- 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 cup chopped green onion
- 3 cups sliced mushrooms
- 1 tablespoon reduced-calorie margarine
- 1⁄2 cup shrimp stock (or 1 tsp shrimp boullion dissolved in 1/2 cup water))
- 1⁄2 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1⁄2 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄2 teaspoon onion powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon oregano
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon garlic powder
- 1 1⁄2 cups long grain brown rice, cooked
- 2 teaspoons shrimp bouillon
