This is out of the Weight Watcher "Take-Out-Tonight" cookbook. It was marked in my cookbook as make again by DH. It has only 2 points. Cooking time does not include marinating time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. To marinate the shrimp and vegetables, combine the scallion, 1/4 cup of the cilantro, 2 tbls of the lime juice, garlic, chipotles, oil, oregano, sugar, and 1/4 tsp of the salt in a large zip-close plastic bag; add the shrimp, bell pepper, and onion wedges.
  2. Squeeze out the air and seal the bag; turn to coat the shrimp and vegetables.
  3. Refrigerate, turning the bag occasionally, about 20 minutes.
  4. To make the salsa, combine the tomatillos, tomatoes, chopped onion, and the remaining 2 tbls cilantro, 2 tbls lime juice, and 1/4 tsp salt in a medium bowl; set aside.
  5. Spray the grill or broiler rack with nonstick spray; prepare the grill or preheat the broiler.
  6. Remove the shrimp and vegetables from the marinade; discard the marinade.
  7. Thread the shrimp, bell pepper and onion onto 4 (12 inch) metal skewers, alternating the ingredients.
  8. Grill or broil the kebabs 5 inches from the heat until the vegetables are tender and the shrimp is just opaque in the center, about 3 minutes on each side.
  9. Serve with the salsa.

Made these tasty shrimp tonight for dinner. I really liked the marinade and the shrimp and veggies were nice and flavorful. Had to cook them on my indoor/outdoor grill -- no skewers just grilled them loose. I made the tomatillo pico de gallo style (as per recipe) to go with the shrimp and I served it on the side. I think next time I would prefer serving the shrimp with the tomatillo salsa pureed in the blender vs. the pico de gallo style. Still very good and tasty.

This was really good. I served it as appetizers on short skewers. I liked the something something that the chipotle added. You could also taste the oregano! Very good dish!

These were so good and full of flavor..... I let these marinate overnight and used red, yellow, and green bell peppers..... I also loved the fact that they are low fat and healthy for you..... I was concerned the chipotle would make them a bit more sicy then we like but it was this was the perfect combination of spices and flavors...... Thanks so much for sharing.... Pictures coming soon....
