Coming up with a popcorn shrimp swap was no easy task, 'cuz as you know, those breaded sea critters have nothing at all to do with popcorn, and EVERYTHING to do with fried greasiness. With the help of our favorite fiber-ific cereal and a fat-free egg sub, we churned out crunch-alicious shrimp so good you'd swear they were packed with gazillions of calories (but they aren't... Woohoo!). There are actually less than 200 calories in the whole entire batch; so shrimp it up, baby!
3 oz. raw shrimp; peeled, deviened and cleaned
1/4 cup Egg Beaters, Original
1/2 cup Fiber One Original bran cereal
salt and pepper to taste
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Pour Egg Beaters into a bowl. Using a blender or food processor, grind Fiber One cereal to a breadcrumb-like consistency. Pour Fiber One crumbs into a plastic container that has an airtight lid (or into a plastic food storage bag). Add as much salt & pepper to Fiber One as you like. Next, prepare the shrimp by ensuring that they are as dry as possible (use a paper towel to soak up moisture). Place shrimp in dish with egg substitute and coat them thoroughly. Transfer shrimp to Fiber One container or bag and secure lid/ seal bag. Then shake until shrimp are well coated. Place shrimp on a baking dish sprayed with nonstick cooking spray. Cook shrimp for 15 – 20 minutes (flipping them about halfway through), until outsides are crispy. Let ‘em cool; then serve 'em alone, with ketchup or with some cocktail sauce.
