Quick Healthy Shrimp Dinner

GD Star Rating

Summer and I were super hungry the other night and wanted to make something that would be really quick. I threw together a healthy meal that took 25 minutes with prep time and almost no clean up. Look past the picture for the simple recipe.

Grilled Shrimp and Vegatable Kabobs
with rice and beans

Ingredients for Lowfat Shrimp and Vegetable Kabobs:

  • Trader Joes Peel Uncooked Tail on Frozen Shrimp
  • Onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Red Bell Peppers
  • Seasame Seeds
  • Microwavable Minute Rice
  • Canned Whole Balack Beans
  • Wooden Spears
  • Newmans Own Lowfat Sesame Seed Dressing
  • Gas Grill


  • Chop the onions and bell peppers the same size squares
  • Pierce the Cherry tomatoes alternately with the onions and bell peppers
  • Pierce the Shrimp onto the kabobs
    don’t crunch them tight, they need room to cook)
  • Pour Seasame Seed Dressing all over the shrimp
  • Pour Seasame Seed Dressing all over the veggies
  • Add to hot grill (on high)
  • Should be ready after cooking for under 8 minutes
  • Microwave Beans and Rice for two minutes togehter

    Not exactly a gourmet meal, but it sure turns out great for such a cheap, quick low fat meal meal. We were stoked. As you can see from the picture, we ate it family style off or my old bamboo cutting board with a “party size” glass of red wine (probably a cabernet).
