Recipes, As Requested!

A couple of people had requested some of the recipes I posted during this week's Menu Plan Monday, specifically for Jambalaya and Curried Shrimp.

Now, I have to be very clear up front that these are not be your traditional recipes because they are recipes based on the Michael Thurmond diet, 6 Week Body Makeover. Consequently, they have no salt and no fat (well, besides what is in the shrimp). Even so, I think both recipes are still delicious - I served the jambalaya to guests once and they loved it!


2 large onions, chopped
2 stalks celery, chopped
2 small green peppers, chopped
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup no-sodium chicken broth
1 tsp. basil
1 tsp. thyme
1/2 tsp. red pepper
1/2 tsp. black pepper
2 cups raw, peeled shrimp
2 cans (14 oz. each) diced, no salt added tomatoes
red pepper sauce to taste

Cook onion, bell pepper and garlic in small amount of water until tender. Add remaining ingredients and simmer for 15 minutes. Serve over rice.

Curried Shrimp

1 lb. peeled & deveined shrimp
1/4 cup lemon juice
1 tsp. red pepper flakes (more if you like it hot!)
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 - 1 tsp. curry powder (to taste - a little goes a long way)
1 tablespoon garlic powder

Add all ingredients in bowl, mix and marinate covered for one hour in the refrigerator. Heat a non-stick pan to med-high. Place shrimp in a single layer for 30 seconds to 1 minute per side or until that side turns pink, then flip and repeat. Serve immediately over rice, garnished with parsley.

So there you go - healthy updates of classics. Let me know if you try them!
