HG’s Rockin' Poppin' Shrimp

Swap-corn Shrimp!

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 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 Beaters 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.

Fight it!

Long John Silver's Popcorn Shrimp

Blimp Shrimp! must take a lot of effort to turn a bunch of innocent, low-calorie

shrimp into a greasy, fatty plate of horribleness. Clearly the folks at Long

John Silver's are up to that task, because a platter of their Popcorn Shrimp

contains 730 calories and 42 grams of fat! And that's without any sides or

dipping sauce. How embarrassing! Still, we gotta admit, we're only human

and sometimes we get cravings for fried seafood. When this happens, we

resist the urge to order this stuff at restaurants, and get a little creative at

home. We suggest you do the same with our Rockin' Poppin' Shrimp recipe!
