10-Minute Shrimp

A great, fast recipe for pre-cooked shrimp from http://www.cooks.com.  The carb count is unknown but, based on the ingredients, is very low.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 lb. medium shrimp, pre-cooked, frozen
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 1/2 teaspoon (or more to taste) Old Bay seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon chopped garlic or 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon Frank’s Hot Sauce
  • 1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice (optional)

INSTRUCTIONS:

  1. Do not thaw shrimp.  Place shrimp in a microwave-proof bowl (if using fresh garlic, add now) and microwave on high setting for 2-3 minutes or until shrimp are steaming hot.  Drain liquid.
  2. While shrimp are hot, add butter, hot sauce, (lemon and parsley), if using, and remaining seasonings.  Return to microwave for 10 seconds, or until butter has melted.

Heavenly Halibut

This is a great recipe from allrecipes.com.  According to http://www.allrecipes, this makes 8 servings and is less than 1 net carb per serving.  I think this makes closer to 4 servings and is around 2 net carbs per serving.  🙂  I used the frozen halibut from Costco.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup butter, softened
  • 3 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped green onions
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 dash hot pepper sauce
  • 2 pounds skinless halibut fillets

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Preheat the oven broiler.  Grease a baking dish.
  2. In a bowl, mix the parmesan cheese, butter, mayonnaise, lemon juice, green onions, salt and hot pepper sauce.
  3. Arrange the halibut fillets in the prepared baking dish.
  4. Broil halibut fillets 8 minutes in the prepared oven or until easily flaked with a fork.  Spread with the parmesan cheese mixture, and continue broiling 2 minutes or until topping is bubbly and lightly browned.
