Ingredients

1 cup fat-free plain Greek yogurt, divided
1/3 cup reduced fat coconut milk, divided
2 tsp. curry powder, mild or hot
1-2 finely chopped garlic cloves
3/4 tsp. sea salt, divided
1 Tbsp. canola oil
1 lb. skinless and boneless chicken breast
2 Tbsp. finely chopped red onion
2 Tbsp. chopped fresh mint
1 tsp. fresh lime juice
12 (8-inch) bamboo skewers

Directions

1 – In wide, shallow bowl or deep plate, combine 2 tablespoons of yogurt with 2 tablespoons of coconut milk, curry powder, garlic and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Mix in oil.
2 – Cut chicken lengthwise into 12 strips. Insert skewer into bottom of one chicken strip and work it up lengthwise to top. Repeat with remaining chicken. Place skewers in curry marinade and using your fingers, make sure it coats them. Cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for 1 to 8 hours.
3 – Arrange marinated chicken on paper toweling and blot dry, removing all excess marinade. Heat large skillet over medium-high heat, then coat with cooking spray. Or heat stovetop griddle. Arrange skewers in one layer in pan and cook for 2 minutes, browning chicken. Using tongs, turn skewers and brown on another side, 2 minutes. Turn chicken and cook until it is opaque and hot around skewer at thickest part of chicken. Transfer skewers to serving plate.
4 – While chicken cooks, prepare the Raita. In bowl, combine remaining yogurt and coconut milk with onions, mint, lime juice and remaining salt. When possible, make Raita 30 minutes before serving chicken to allow its flavors to develop and meld. Serve it the day it is made.

You’ll be using Spring Roll Skins, Water, Rice Sticks, Cucumber, Small Shrimp, Green Onions, Cilantro, Duck Sauce, Ginger, and fresh Orange Juice. The recipe is from the Diabetes Self Management website where you can find a huge selection of Diabetic Friendly Recipes, Diabetes News, Diabetes Management Tips, and more!

Shrimp Spring Rolls with Tangy Citrus Sauce
Seafood lovers, rejoice! This satisfying snack has less than 100 calories per serving and takes just 20 minutes to prepare. Cilantro and tangy ginger-orange sauce pair perfectly with each wrapped shrimp for a peak-flavor appetizer.

Ingredients
Preparation time: 15 minutes
Cooking time: 5 minutes.

4 eight-inch circular spring roll skins
Warm water
2 ounces rice sticks
1 small (6-inch) cucumber
8 small shrimp (50- to 60-per-pound size), cooked and peeled
2 green onions
Handful of fresh cilantro sprigs
1/4 cup prepared duck sauce
1 teaspoon minced ginger
1 tablespoon unsweetened or fresh orange juice

Directions
Yield: 4 servings
Serving size: 1 shrimp roll with about 1 tablespoon sauce

Dipping sauce:

1 – In a large pie pan or shallow casserole dish, place 1 spring roll skin so it lies flat. Pour in enough warm water to cover the skin by at least 1/2 inch. Allow it to soften about 2 minutes. Carefully transfer the skin, allowing excess water to drip off, to a serving plate. Repeat with each skin.

2 – Fill a 2-quart saucepan three-quarters full of water, place over medium heat, and bring to a boil. Add the rice sticks and cook approximately 3–5 minutes until softened. Drain well and allow to cool. Peel cucumber and cut off 1/2 inch from each end. Cut cucumber in half horizontally. Cut each half lengthwise into strips, about 1/2 inch thick; you will need 16 cucumber strips total for the rolls. (Store any extra cucumber in refrigerator if desired or discard.) Cut each shrimp in half, lengthwise, and set aside. Remove root end from green onions with a sharp knife. Cut a 4-inch segment from the white part of each onion, and split in half lengthwise. Combine all sauce ingredients in a small bowl and mix with a fork or small whisk.

3 – To make the spring rolls, start by placing approximately 1/4 cup drained rice sticks in a column in the center of each skin. Place 2 pieces of cut cucumber on either side of the rice sticks (4 pieces total per skin). Top rice sticks with 4 halves of shrimp, equally spaced, and top with half an onion segment and 2 sprigs of fresh cilantro. Beginning at one edge, parallel to the column of filling, fold the skin over the column. Fold the top and bottom of the skin toward the middle to enclose the filling. Roll from the center toward the final edge of the skin, using your fingers to center the filling as you roll. Serve immediately at room temperature, or chill if desired. Serve with dipping sauce.
