Shrimp Ceviche

22
Traditional ceviche consists of raw seafood tossed with an acidic marinade (think: citrus juice or vinegar) that “cooks” the fish. We cook the shrimp before marinating it. This recipe originally appeared on Emeril Green, Emeril Lagasse's cooking show on Planet Green. Lagasse has his own brand of frozen wild American shrimp, which meet strict U.S. environmental standards. The shrimp taste sweet and “they just smell like the sea,” according to Emeril. Serve this with tostones (fried plantain chips) or tortilla chips. (Recipe courtesy of Emeril Lagasse, Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, Inc.)

Quick Shrimp Enchilada Bake

41
Shrimp enchiladas offer a taste of coastal Mexican cuisine but some versions contain so much cheese, butter and sour cream that they can pack a whopping 50 grams of fat per serving. Our version has vibrant flavor and only half the calories and 6 grams of fat per serving, plus we use precooked peeled shrimp so you can get the dish on your table fast enough for a weeknight supper. The addition of refried beans helps makes these enchiladas an excellent source of fiber as well.
