The Opposite of Shrimpy



Serve it as you like it, with a side of beans, in a taco shell. Or, make it for one person, and slaw-on with your badass self all week. Adjust shrimp and avocado portions, as appetites require.


1 cup Plain Greek yogurt (your choice fat %)
1 Garlic clove
3 Scallion tops - greens only
12 cup Cilantro, stems and all
1 Jalapeño, core and seeds removed
14 cup Freshly-squeezed lime juice
12 tsp Ground cumin
12 tsp Kosher salt
14 tsp
Black Pepper
1 (14-ounce) Bag cole slaw mix
1 lb Shrimp, cleaned and raw
1 Haas Avocado 
Lime Wedges


This is a zero point Weight Watchers Meal if using fat-free yogurt, save for the avocado. Point accordingly.

  • In a food processor or blender, add all the ingredients in the first grouping, except for the slaw. Pulse until combined. This will make the slaw dressing.

  • Dress the cole slaw mix, to your liking. I reserve some of the dressing to use throughout the week, served over riced-cauliflower, drizzled over eggplant. Anything goes.

  • In a sauté pan, with a hint of olive oil non-stick spray, a shower of salt and pepper, cook the shrimp until they're pink and happy. Shrimp hate to be overcooked. No anger-ball shrimp! Hit 'em with a shock of lime juice at the end. Come to mama.

  • Slaw up a bowl, layer on some happy shrimp with avocado chunks, shower with cilantro, and garnish with lime wedges, adding more dressing as you wish.



  1. That looks awesome!!! And who wouldn’t want a zero-point meal like this?! I don’t mind counting points for the avocado when everything else is zero! Thanks, as always, for sharing with all of us. You are the best!!!

  2. This would be great as a “bowl” meal ….. base – cauliflower rice, shrimp dish as above, slaw to one side, grilled pineapple slice. (Or in my case, grilled peach half since I have pineapple reactions sometimes.) How decadent! But how acceptable.

  3. I will be making this recipe this week and I am looking forward to it. Thanks!
