Spicy Shrimp Sauté

If you are looking for a great low carb, high protein asian-flare recipe, this is it! A simple meal that will quickly give you a huge protein boost with 38 grams of protein per 2 cup serving, and at only 288 calories, why not have more than one serving? This is truly a guilt free dish that is great for dinner, and, if you have leftovers, makes a great lunch later in the week. I typically double this recipe because I love having simple leftovers in the fridge, so I can have a quick meal that I know is going to be healthy and give me the protein kick I am looking for. I will also make a side of rice with this dish for my kids when they are needing more carbs in their diet to replenish all the energy they are using. Enjoy!
