I don’t know about y’all, but I’m starting to feel the pressure!
I absolutely love this time of year but it can really be stressful – I just feel like there isn’t enough time to get everything done. Figuring out schedules, bringing food to parties, organizing lists, planning parties, baking, getting gifts ordered, wrapping gifts…oh, and trying not to gain 10 pounds if you can help it!
Well, I can’t take care of your Aunt Mildred’s gift or tell you what to do with that door prize you won at the office, but I can at least arm you with a delicious dish to take to your parties that you can snack on without any guilt! (Okay, well, maybe a little guilt since you might show up the store-bought deli tray and the shady looking jello mold…)
I actually found these on the Weight Watchers website over a year ago and they are now a family favorite. I’ve modified them slightly to make them even easier to prepare, but they are seriously delicious and easy to make – and nobody can even tell they are “diet-friendly.”
Wasabi Shrimp Bites (Makes 24 pieces / 2 pieces = 1 WW point)
24 small-medium cooked shrimp (1/2 pound should work)
1/4 cup fat-free mayonnaise
1 tsp. Wasabi paste
1 tsp. soy sauce
Begin by mixing together your mayonnaise, soy sauce and wasabi paste. Adjust according to taste – I usually add a little more wasabi for more of a kick. Refrigerate until ready to use.
Rinse shrimp and remove tails.
Slice your cucumber into 24 slices and cut avocado into 24 small pieces.
To assemble, spread about 1/2 tsp. wasabi-mayo mixture on each cucumber slice. Add a piece of avocado and top with 1 shrimp.
Refrigerate until ready to serve, and then dig in…
Hope you all have a great weekend!
