New Years Eve Dinner - Cajun Shrimp Stir Fry (2 pts)

Yes, I know it was New Years Eve but I resisted the temptation to splurge and make some crazy kind of meal like I've done in the past. I wanted to create something that was fun but healthy! 

So I came up with this stir fry. I prepped everything earlier in the day, took 10 minutes to cook it and then settled in with hubby to watch Hidden Figures. 

It was a very low key evening. We are old :)


  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled, deveined, rinsed and patted dry
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried oregano
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 tbsp garlic, minced
  • mini yellow and orange peppers, about 10, cut into pieces
  • 1 cup diced mushrooms
  • 2 tbsp parsley
  • lemon, cut into wedges


  1. Add everything but the parsley and lemon into a re-sealable bag and refrigerate until ready to cook. 
  2. Heat a large skillet on medium, add 2 tsp olive oil. 
  3. Place the shrimp mixture into the skillet, stirring and then cover for a few minutes. 
  4. The shrimp are done when they are pink and the veggies should be crisp tender (about 10 minutes). 
  5. Sprinkle with the parsley and serve with lemon wedges. 

This serves two at 2 pts (if you are following Weight Watchers). 

You could serve this over brown rice or bread to sop up all the delicious juices!
