I've made this twice so far, slightly two different ways.
Both times it came out really good.
I know many of you are not familiar with shrimp mirliton casserole, but
it's often made by my family and many others, especially around the holidays in Louisiana.
Usually there are large amounts of Italian breadcrumbs and some more Parmesan cheese.
Here's how I made it last night.
1 1/2 cups of zucchini (diced)
1 minced clove garlic
a little diced onion, maybe 1 to 2 Tablespoons
about 1 teaspoon diced jalapeno
Mrs. Dash Spicy Seasoning
1/2 cup baby spinach
4 oz. raw shrimp
1 Tablespoon 0% Fat Greek Yogurt
1 Tablespoon low-fat Parmesan
I "saute" the zucchini, onion, jalapeno and garlic in a little water.
I let the water evaporate, add more water a little at a time if need be to get these soft.
Eventually, though, you don't want any water left.
I add quite a bit of Italian Seasoning (to replicate the Italian Breadcrumb taste)
and a few sprinkles of the Mrs. Dash Spicy.
Then, I throw in the shrimp and spinach. Usually the spinach and shrimp get done around the same time.
I plop this in a bowl.
Adding 1 Tablespoon of low-fat grated Parmesean makes it delicious.
Last night, I skipped it because I was feeling like something creamier.
So, I added 1 Tablespoon 0% Fat Greek Yogurt and mixed it up.
It was just as delicious.
Another success was the
These are a little bit of heaven in your mouth.
I feel them becoming a staple in my repertoire.
And taking a lesson from yesterday's post,
Next step is to start using my vintage Milk Glass set.
I have to admit that it did feel good to be a little fancy with my coffee.
I did feel more charming, haha.
Today was Body Stat checks!
Down 1.63% body fat in seven days!
Weight is 110 pounds.
I'm still at 20.31% body fat, but now that I'm full on and not cheating I'm losing
more than 1% a week.
And as a side note, I'm 5' 3/4" tall, 38 years old.
Not too shabby. =D
