1 scallion, finely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

1. Combine mayo, scallion, garlic, lemon juice and Old Bay seasoning in a small bowl.
2. Combine the shrimp and Cajun seasoning in a medium bowl.
3. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook until just lightly browned and opaque in the center 1 1/2- 2 minutes per side. Serve at once with Old Bay mayonnaise.

Beef. It's whats for dinner tonight!

Mexican Beef over Polenta

POINTS: 5
SERVINGS: 6
INSTRUCTIONS

1 pound(s) uncooked lean ground beef (with 7% fat)
1 small onion(s), chopped
14 1/2 oz canned diced tomatoes, with chiles, drained, reserve 1 Tbsp of liquid (Rotel) I generally use the house brand
1 cup(s) canned yellow corn, drained, or frozen, thawed corn kernels
10 items olive(s), Kalamata, sliced
2 tbsp canned jalapeno peppers, pickled, chopped (optional)
3/4 tsp table salt, divided
1/4 tsp ground cumin
1/8 tsp black pepper
3/4 cup(s) polenta, quick-cooking (Yellow corn meal)
3 cup(s) canned chicken broth
1/3 cup(s) salsa
1/3 cup(s) shredded reduced-fat Mexican-style cheese (I use 2%)
2 tbsp cilantro, or scallion, fresh, chopped (optional)


Heat a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Cook beef and onion, stirring frequently, until meat is fully cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes; drain off any liquid. Stir in tomatoes and reserved liquid, corn, olives, jalapenos (if using), 1/4 teaspoon of salt, cumin and pepper; simmer 5 minutes to allow flavors to blend.


Meanwhile, in a small pot, combine cornmeal, broth and remaining 1/2 teaspoon of salt; stir well. Bring to a simmer and cook, stirring constantly, until cornmeal is thick, about 5 minutes.


Spoon polenta onto a large serving plate and top with beef mixture. Top with salsa, cheese and cilantro (or scallion). Divide into 6 portions and serve.

Turn chicken and cook 6 minutes or until chicken is done. Whisk togther remaining 3 ingredients, pour over chicken and cook 1 more minute.

THANKS STEVE!

I think I'm just going to print this whole thread, EVERY ONE of these recipes sound really good! It's always a challenge to diet when you live with a skinny man who can eat ANYTHING and doesn't like diet food. These recipes sound like things I can feed hubby -- and he won't know they're healthy! THANKS AGAIN to everyone who posted a recipe!

I agree Swan. In fact, we even have a few friends who enjoy coming to dinner because they know I am going to cook low fat/low calorie. They say they never feel guilty eating at our house and always enjoy what I choose. I decided long ago that I was going to cook like we needed and if guests didn't want it then they could always decline! At the holidays I make concessions. Other times you are getting healthy meals at my house but I will do my best to make you enjoy it!

The pan glazed balsamic chicken looks very good. I will try it soon. I have to admit to not liking couscous but I think brown rice would substitute quite well.

I might have posted this one already but it is good enough to post again. Portions are large and satisfies that urge for pasta. I don't know about you, but pasta is something I simply can't do without.

Fajita Pork and Pasta

POINTS: 8
INSTRUCTIONS

1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste (for cooking pasta)
6 oz uncooked whole-wheat pasta, penne recommended
2 tbsp olive oil, divided
6 tbsp fresh lime juice, divided
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1 pound(s) lean pork tenderloin, thinly sliced*
1 medium yellow pepper(s), sliced into thin strips
1 medium sweet red pepper(s), sliced into thin strips
1 medium green pepper(s), sliced into thin strips
1/3 cup(s) carrot(s), thickly shredded
1 medium onion(s), cut into thin wedges
4 oz canned green chili peppers, mild, drained, chopped
1 medium zucchini, cut in half lengthwise and sliced


Cook pasta in salted water as directed on package; drain, set aside and cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine 1 tablespoon of oil, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, cumin,
chili powder and garlic powder; mix well. Add pork and toss to coat.

Heat remaining tablespoon of oil in a 12-inch (or larger) nonstick skillet over medium-high heat.
Add pork mixture; cook, stirring, until lightly browned, about 2 to 3 minutes. Add sliced peppers,
carrot, onion and chili peppers; cook, stirring, until vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Stir in zucchini and remaining 1/4 cup (4 tablespoons) of lime juice; cover and cook for 2 minutes.

Spoon pork and vegetable mixture into a large serving bowl. Add cooked pasta; stir gently to mix and coat.
Yields about 2 1/2 cups per serving.
