I was hoping to make something relatively WW-friendly for dinner last night, and I succeeded! Our grocery store has been totally remodeled (and added on to) and now sports a HUGE seafood area (and a sushi chef and a real meat counter and all kinds of "ethnic" foods that are neither Mexican nor Italian). It's like they decided to give us small-town coastal folks a big city grocery store!

Anyhoo.. yesterday's special was 41/50 peeled/deveined/cooked/frozen shrimp. So, I grabbed half a pound of 'em and picked up several fresh veggies (sweet onion, shredded carrots, stringless sugar snap peas, zucchini, summer squash) and a bottle of teriyaki marinade. Prep time was almost nil (large dice on the onion, zucchini, and squash), and cooking time was not very long (sautee onion 'til translucent, add all other veggies and just enough marinade to coat, turn off heat, scatter frozen shrimp across the top of the veggie pile, cover, and let residual heat warm the shrimp through). Add some rice, and voila!

Steve raved about this meal all evening. I think it's going to be a staple in our weekly meals, at least until the weather gets too cold to leave the windows open (thus rendering our house almost 100% fishy smell-free) or until the price of shrimp goes up prohibitively. And when either of those things happens, it's probably time to be roasting turkeys and other hunks of meat anyway. :D

(WW totals: 12 points for the entire panful of stirfry, so about 3 points per serving. Rice extra.)
