    If you like shrimp.

    Shrimp, Scampi, Weight Watchers, Squeeze

    Traditional shrimp scampi is loaded with butter. Our version eliminates most of the fat, but still packs in all the flavor.

    2 tsp olive oil
    4 medium garlic clove(s), minced
    1 tsp dried oregano
    1 lb shrimp, medium, peeled and deveined
    1/4 cup wine, dry white or vermouth
    2 tsp cornstarch
    3/4 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth
    1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
    8 oz uncooked linguini, cooked and kept hot
    1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste
    1/4 cup parsley, fresh, chopped

    1 Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and sauté 1 minute. Add oregano and stir to coat. Add shrimp and sauté until bright pink, stirring frequently, about 3 minutes. Add wine and simmer about 1 minute.
    2 Dissolve cornstarch in chicken broth and whisk until blended. Add mixture to skillet and simmer 2 minutes, until sauce thickens. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
    3 Transfer cooked linguini to four individual shallow bowls and spoon shrimp and sauce over top; sprinkle with parsley. Yields about 1 1/3 cups of pasta, 1/4 cup of sauce and 3 ounces of shrimp per serving.

    Jerk Chicken Thighs with Mango Salsa
    POINTS: 4

    3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
    3/4 tsp ground allspice
    1/2 tsp garlic salt
    1/4 tsp dried thyme
    1/4 tsp table salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1/8 tsp cayenne pepper, or to taste
    2 Tbsp fresh lime juice, divided
    1 pound boneless, skinless chicken thigh(s), about 6 thighs

    1 large mango(es), diced
    2 small shallot(s), finely chopped
    1 large jalapeno pepper(s), cored, seeded and minced (do not touch seeds with bare hands)
    1 Tbsp cilantro, fresh, minced
    1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste

    Preheat grill to medium heat.

    On a plate, combine cinnamon, allspice, garlic salt, thyme, table salt, black pepper, cayenne pepper and 1 tablespoon of lime juice; mix to a paste. Brush both sides of chicken with seasoning paste; set aside for 10 minutes to allow flavors to blend.

    Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine salsa ingredients.

    Place chicken on preheated grill. Grill for 10 minutes; flip and grill until cooked through, about 6 minutes more. Cut each chicken thigh in half to serve. Yields 3 pieces of chicken (1 1/2 thighs total) and about 1/2 cup of salsa per serving.
