EDAMAME SUCCOTASH WITH SHRIMP
POINTS VALUE: 6
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
