Ingredients

  • 1 TBSP Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 TBSP Mrs. Dash Spicy
  • 12 oz shrimp, peeled, deveined (smaller med. size shrimp yields about 12 shrimp)

Lemon Dill Sauce Ingredients:

  • 4 oz plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 oz green onion, thinly sliced or chopped
  • 2 TBSP fresh dill, chopped
  • 1 TBSP lemon juice
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste

Directions

  1. Toss the shrimp in oil and seasoning.
  2. Heat a heavy bottomed skillet to medium-high heat. Once heated, add shrimp, and cook until slightly blackened, about 2-3 minutes per side. Remove from heat, and set aside.
  3. Mix Lemon Dill Sauce ingredients together in a bowl.
  4. Assemble bites as follows: start with a cucumber slice, layer on ½ teaspoon of dill & lemon sauce, and top with a cooked shrimp

Servings: 3 | Serving Size: 4 Cucumber Bites | One serving replaces: 4 oz protein, 4 oz vegetables

To make this a complete meal, add another 4 oz raw vegetables & a carbohydrate serving as indicated by your menu.

Variations:

  • Kick up the spice by adding thinly sliced fresh jalapeno on top
  • Sushi-tize it by using sushi-grade Tuna or Salmon in place of the shrimp
