Lately I have been craving lots of seafood – shrimp, fish, scallops, almost anything. Maybe it’s because summer is approaching and with that fond memories of weekends spent eating fresh amazing seafood in New England gathered with family and friends. Or maybe it’s my body unconsciously telling me that there are only a few weeks left before I need to wear a bathing suit so it’s time to pack in the low calorie meals. I like to think it’s the first reason but it’s realistically probably a bit of each. So when you are feeling that way, shrimp is a great option. With only 120 calories and 3 PointsPlus® per 4 oz. they are a delicious option, especially when jazzed up with honey and lime like in this recipe.
