I’ll admit that I LOVE all things cheese, chocolate, and fattening…but I really want to learn healthier recipes.  I’ve been trying to attempt some healthier versions of favorite recipes lately, and I’m so happy with the results. They’ve become some of our go-to recipes (Check out our Salmon with Avocado Salsa and Skinny Cheat’s Lasagna!) and it feels so much better to indulge in something you can feel good about. The weekends are usually the time Pat and I go crazy on the calories, so I’m hoping finding some skinnier recipes to love instead will help us get back on track with a healthy lifestyle. Let me tell you, its HARD to have a food blog and not eat, eat, eat.

Skinny Bang Bang Shrimp is healthy, fun, delicious, and EASY!

This healthy and spicy shrimp was an absolute success. Pat pretty much licked these skewers clean. You would never know that each skewer of 5 shrimp is only around 50 calories.  Amazing!

The secret ingredient is greek yogurt.  Chobani greek yogurt is our favorite, it is so creamy and delicious.  It can be a cooking substitute in SO many dishes, and it worked like a charm for this sauce.  This sauce would also be great on chicken, I actually doubled the recipe and am going to try it in some other things tomorrow.  It is delicious. (If you want to be a little less healthy…dip some fries in this sauce…OMG!)

Bang Bang Shrimp used to be my very favorite appetizer to get at Bonefish Grill when I lived in Jacksonville.  I always felt guilty getting it after I made the mistake of looking up the nutritional information (830 calories…yikes).  Now, I’m all for a calorie splurge once in a while, but if you can create a delicious copycat meal at home that’s actually healthy…well that’s a win, win.

I think this would make a great and romantic appetizer for a Valentine’s Day meal at home. You really can’t go wrong with grilled shrimp and this sauce. I know I’ve already said it but you have got to taste this sauce!
