Yes shrimp is low in calories...about 6 per shrimp ......not so good in a iodine and cholesterol...but in moderation....the slaw.... the slaw in this recipe...did I say the sooo good.....


2 lbs jumbo shrimp (at least around 26 count) cleaned deveined
1-1/2 lb Napa cabbage sliced thin
2 carrots, peeled and grated
1 large red pepper sliced thin
2 shallots sliced thin
1/3 cup chopped lightly or unsalted peanuts
3 tbl rice vinegar
4 tsp sugar
4 tsp fish sauce
2 tbl sesame oil

Combine vinegar, sugar, fish sauce, 1/8 tsp salt over low heat until sugar dissolves. Set aside to cool.

In a large bowl combine cabbage, carrots, peppers, and shallots. Pour vinegar mix over the vegetable mix and add peanuts and toss well. Let sit stirring occasionally for about 20 minutes.

In a saute pan, heat oil over medium-high heat and add shrimp with 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper. Add the cooked shrimp to the slaw and serve. The Asian flavor is very tasty. It is filling without adding calories.......

Good Luck...I need a diet!!!!!!
