Mr. Food Test Kitchen is here to help you lighten up with quick and easy recipes that will tantalize your taste buds without tipping the scale. Make sure to mix around well so all pieces of shrimp are covered in the marinade. Chimichurri certainly livens up this shrimp dish, but it also can be used to top steaks, pork chops, and chicken. Go-Go’s is a prototypical Chicago style fast food stand which means stuff like burgers, hot dogs, gyros, etc are served here.
These light, spicy shrimp tacos will keep you lean by enhancing calorie burn via a metabolism boost. I’d say the minimum marinade time is 15 minutes, but you can let the shrimp marinate all day long when you’re at work if that’s easier/if you can stomach the look of raw shrimp at 7am.
This shrimp works great in tacos, quesadillas, wraps, on rice, with veggies, or on a chopped salad. This crazy-delicious dinner has all the tasty sweet-meets-spicy Thai flavors you crave and is ready in less than 20 minutes. It’s tasty with a lemony flair and delivers 8 grams of fiber (that’s about one-third the daily recommended intake for a 2,000 calorie diet).
If the nutritionals don’t sway you, maybe the fact that shrimp is quick to prepare will do so. We know losing weight on a busy schedule can be tough, so anything that can help you can get dinner on the table in minutes is welcome news. Now the secret to getting this shrimp perfectly cooked and perfectly is by heating your skillet until it’s very hot.
Flip the shrimp over and cook for another minute or until they’re just cooked but still a little translucent in the center. Have you seen the studies that look at packaged food and compared the actual nutrition of a particular dish (doing the measurements in a scientific lab) versus the nutrition label: they’re often way off, both directions.
