HOW TO MAKE WEIGHT WATCHERS CAJUN SHRIMP CUPS
This Weight Watchers Cajun Shrimp Cups recipe is fairly quick and easy to make. You can get most of the steps done while the shrimp are cooking!
STEP ONE: BAKE EGGROLL WRAPPERS
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
Cut each eggroll wrapper into four equal square pieces.
Place each eggroll wrapper square into a mini muffin pan cup and press it down into the bottom of the cup. Push the sides up and push the corners down to form a little cup.
Spray the wraps lightly with nonstick Olive Oil spray so that they crisp up while baking.
Bake the wrappers for about 8 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove from oven and cool on a wire rack.
STEP TWO: COOK SHRIMP
While the eggroll wrappers are cooking start working on the shrimp!
Start off by zesting a whole lime. Divide the zest into two equal portions and set one portion aside for later.
In a small bowl combine the Cajun seasoning, 1/2 the lime zest and shrimp. Coat the shrimp well in the seasoning mix and then lay out on a baking sheet.
When the eggroll wrappers come out of the oven go ahead and bake the shrimp for 8-10 minutes or until the shrimp are cooked through.
STEP THREE: MAKE THE SOUR CREAM MIXTURE
Take the zested lime and squeeze out the fresh lime juice.
While the shrimp are cooking go ahead and mix the sour cream, lime juice and the rest of the lime zest together in a small bowl.
STEP FOUR: BUILD THE SHRIMP CUPS
Now it is time to build the Cajun Shrimp Cups.
Place 1-2 baby spinach leaves in the bottom of each eggroll wrapper cup. Top with a small dollop of the sour cream mixture and end with one shrimp on top.
