Servings: 4

Serving Size: about 1 1/2 cups


2 slices bacon

1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil

1 bunch scallions, sliced, or 1 medium onion, diced

1 red bell pepper, diced

2 cloves garlic, minced

1 1/2 teaspoons chopped fresh thyme

1 10-ounce package frozen shelled edamame, thawed

1 10-ounce package frozen corn, (about 2 cups), thawed

1/2 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth, or vegetable broth

1 tablespoon cider vinegar

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 pound raw shrimp, (26-30 per pound), peeled and deveined

1/4 teaspoon lemon pepper


Cook bacon in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes.   Leaving the drippings in the pan, use tongs to transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels; let cool.

Add oil to the pan.  Add scallions (or onion, bell pepper, garlic and thyme and cook, stirring, until softened, about 3 minutes.  Stir in edamame, corn, broth, vinegar and salt.  Bring to a simmer; reduce heat to medium-low and cook for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile sprinkle shrimp on both sides with lemon pepper.  Scatter the shrimp on top of the vegetables, cover and cook until the shrimp are cooked through, about 5 minutes.  Crumble the bacon and sprinkle it on top.


TIPS:  You can tell this isn't a WW recipe.  What with using the bacon drippings.  Of course bacon drippings add a lot of flavor, but I think you could probably get away with out it and just use the olive oil.   I do like lima beans (which is what is normally put in succotash), but I really liked the edamame in this.  The edamame was just a fresher, lighter taste to me!  EatingWell recommended serving this with a warm piece of cornbread to make it a meal.  I opted to serve it with brown rice--of course no matter what you choose--ADJUST THE POINTS!   7 g fiber, 307 calories, 9 g fat
