Lemon-Garlic Shrimp and Vegetables

This is a particularly delicious take on a medley classic. Heat two teaspoons of olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add bell peppers, lemon zest, asparagus and salt and pepper to taste, stirring until the food just begins to soft. Transfer the vegetables to another bowl, and cover to keep warm. In the same skillet, cook shrimp and garlic in two teaspoons of oil until the shrimp has cooked through. Remove from heat and stir in lemon juice and parsley before adding the vegetables. Combine the two well and mix before serving for a delicious and nutritious take on a seafood classic. The shrimp and the vegetables can provide individuals with necessary health benefits, such as cholesterol management.

Scallops Yakitori

In this Japanese food classic, combine sake, soy sauce, sugar and mirin with Worcestershire sauce and ginger in a relatively small saucepan. Bring this to a simmer over medium heat and cook until it has reduced before pouring into another bowl to cool. Add the scallops and mushrooms to the sauce, stirring well in order to coat all of the components as evenly as possible. Let this refrigerate for half an hour before getting the bamboo skewers. Once ready, skewer the components and grill them on the skewers until the scallops are cooked to a firm and opaque texture, which may take around three minutes. Serve immediately or with rice and enjoy!

Crab Salad Melts

These melts use the delicious taste of crab to stand out among other seafood classics. In order to make, cook asparagus until it is tender before mixing with the other components. Add crab, celery, scallion, lemon juice, low-fat mayonnaise, hot sauce, salt and pepper, scallion and bell pepper to the asparagus and mix together until the mixture is homogeneous. Stir well before placing on English muffin halves and covering with one teaspoon of low-fat cheese. Put these in the broiler until the cheese has melted and serve immediately or with tea. This tasty treat can also be substituted with other vegetables to taste.
