Frozen shrimp can make for a quick and easy meal, but try to avoid shrimp that have been peeled and deveined before freezing, which usually causes a loss of texture and flavor.

This recipe for mango shrimp skewers was shared by FitSugar reader lauren in FitSugar’s Healthy Recipe community group.

I’ll be passing along some healthy and easy to fix Super Bowl Party food through out the week.

Skewered Shrimp With Homemade Mango Marinade

1 pound of shrimp, deveined and shelled
1 flesh of a mango
1 teaspoon of cumin powder
1 jalapeno, seeded depending on your tastes
Salt to taste


Puree all the mango, cumin powder, and jalapeno in small blender or food processor.
Skewer the shrimp and cover with the half of the marinade. Allow the shrimp to marinade in the fridge for a half hour.
Cook until shrimp are pink in color and top with the rest of the marinade

Today’s Menu: Shrimp and Linguine Alfredo

Tried a new one for dinner tonight, Shrimp and Linguine Alfredo. I used a medium size White Shrimp, Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Wheat Linguine, Kraft 2% Sharp Cheddar Shredded Cheese, Kraft Shredded Parm Cheese, and seasoning. The Classico Light Creamy Alfredo Sauce is only 60 calories and 3 carbs and very tasty! With using the Light Sauce along with the Whole Wheat Pasta, and 2% Cheese your saving a lot of calories and carbs. It’s the first time I made Shrimp Alfredo and it turned out delicious and I’ll be fixing it again soon. I had Healthy Life Whole Grain Bread on the side. For dessert/snack later I made some Stuffed Bacon Mushrooms. I’ll leave the Mushrooms recipe on a separate post.

Classico Light Alfredo Shrimp Linguine


1 jar (15 oz.) Classico® Creamy Alfredo Pasta Sauce
8 ounces Ronzoni Healthy Harvest Whole Grain Linguine
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound large, peeled and deveined raw shrimp
1/4 cup chopped fresh basil or parsley


Cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain and keep warm.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Cook shrimp and basil for 2 to 3 minutes, or until shrimp are pink, stirring occasionally. Add Pasta Sauce, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes or until heated through, stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste if desired. Serve hot with cooked pasta.
