Here’s a nice light snack straight from the pages of Diabetic Living and Better Homes and Gardens. Why, you ask, do I have a Diabetic Living cookbook? Seriously, have you been paying attention? I have no control when it comes to picking up a new cookbook, especially one that is $3.99 at the checkout. This particular impulse buy was back in 2007, so I don’t really remember it. I’m sure I was lured in by the promise of healthy snacks and pictures of smoothies on the cover. Somehow I’m always looking for a low-calorie smoothie recipe, yet I never seem to get around to making them.
Anyway, back to the shrimp.
These babies were soaked in a marinade that’s primarily orange and ginger. Then just steam the pea pods and thread it on the skewer with the mandarin orange. This is what I like to refer to as assembling food; even if you can’t cook, you can do it.
Jake approved of the shrimp themselves, but I had a suspicious amount of pea pods and oranges on my plate.
Eat Well and Savor.
