Shrimp Caesar Salad.

Last October when Michael went fishing with his dad down to the Mississippi gulf, they caught a shrimping boat coming back into the docks, and got the shrimpers (is that even the right word to call them??) to sell them some fresh right off the boat shrimp. Then the came home, and proceeded to let me separate them into 1 pound bags. Leaving us with a LOT of shrimp. Good thing it's healthy when cooked in the right way. I know the point value seems high on a shrimp caesar salad, but it's mostly the dressing, which eats up the majority of points.

Shrimp Caesar Salad (makes 2 servings)
WW points plus : 9 pts a serving

1 pound raw, peeled and deveined shrimp
1 tbsp light butter or margarine
4 tbsp Newman's light Caesar dressing
2 tbsp parmesan cheese
1 head of romaine lettuce, rinsed dried and chopped
1 tsp garlic salt
1 tsp rosemary, crushed
1 tsp oregano

In a large bowl or tupperware container, place lettuce, and drizzle with the caesar dressing. Stir to mix up or place lid and shake it up. Shaking the container more evenly coats the dressing on the lettuce. Meanwhile in a saute pan, melt butter over medium heat, Add shrimp and cook 3-4 minutes on each side. Mix in garlic salt, rosemary and oregano.
Plate the lettuce, then add the cooked shrimp. Before you serve sprinkle with parmesan cheese.

It's a pretty simple recipe, light and fresh when you can get fresh shrimp. If we don't have fresh shrimp I usually look for the shrimp on sale in the seafood department. If I can find it at 3.99-4.99 lb or cheaper, I usually buy 2-3 lbs and separate it into 1/2 or 1 pound packages!!
