Since I have been on Weight Watchers I am always looking for low fat delicious recipes. I have found many and if you like shrimp, you will definitely love this dish. It combines all the flavors of Thailand and I absolutely love Thai food. This recipe is so good that you won’t know it is a Weight Watchers recipe at all. I got it from Skinny Taste Gina has a fabulous food blog with all Weight Watchers recipes. She is my “go to” website now for low fat recipes without sacrificing flavor. She also includes the Nutritional value and the Weight Watchers Points Plus values.
