Tired, Hungry, Quick and Tasty - Describes this quick and easy late afternoon snack that packs a punch of flavor! There are only about 6 calories in a piece of medium size shrimp. So a pound of 16/18 ct size shrimp is only about 108 calories. Since I used a ketchup sweetened with agave nectar it was only 20 calories per tablespoon. So this snack was under 200 calories.
Last night I pulled out some shrimp in freezer and left in the fridge to thaw. So today when I got home from work I wanted something to eat to hold me over till dinner and thought I would just quick cook the shrimp and whip up a horseradish sauce.
I used an agave nectar sweetened organic ketchup as my base and then zest it up with some extra seasonings.
I can control the ingredients and it was the best cocktail I think I've ever made. Plus the lime on the shrimp with Himalayan pink sea salt and fresh cilantro take it up a notch. I thought it was better than old bay boiled shrimp!
