Free Diet Menu: Diet Kabobs, Hawaii Wild Rice
You'll need a few skewers or any long cooking stick which will not burn when exposed to heat. Add the following to each skewer that you make: pineapple chunk, shrimp, pearl onion, cherry tomato. From here simply keep repeating the process until the skewer is full.
Be sure to clean and de-vein your shrimp. Remove that tough outer shell. If you are doing the cleaning rather than the fishmonger, be sure to wash the shrimp after you've thoroughly cleaned it.
Add salt and pepper to the ingredients on the skewer. Using a small brush, paint apricot or peach jam or preserves onto the ingredients. You can also opt for your favorite glaze if you wish. We simply enjoy the flavors of the peach and apricot.
Cook on the grill until all of the ingredients are done. The shrimp cooks very quickly - and if overcooked, it will be as tough as Carpenter Henry's nails.
Serve with our Hawaii Wild Recipe.
You will need the following ingredients: wild rice, golden raisins, dried cranberries, Tropicana TROP50 Orange Juice and chopped walnuts. If you prefer pecans, they will also work great in this recipe. You will also need one serving of your favorite glaze sauce - or you can use a serving of the peach or apricot preserves or jam if you wish.
Measure out the wild rice to suit the number of servings you wish. Add the required amount of liquid in the form of the TROP50 Orange Juice. Use half water and half orange juice for a less concentrated orange flavor.
Cook according to the package directions on the wild rice. When the rice is fully cooked and tender, add the golden raisins and dried cranberries along with the chopped nuts.
For each serving, add about 2 teaspoons of this mix of fruit and nuts. When used in moderation, these ingredients can add flavor to your weight loss plan. But when used too freely, they can also add pounds to your weighing scales.
Finally, add the sauce. If you have two servings of wild rice, then add two servings of the sauce and stir. If you have eight servings, then add eight servings of the sauce.
You can also use the wild rice that is either a 'quick to prepare' produce, or that is already fully cooked. If you use the fully cooked wild rice, simply add the nuts and fruit - and the sauce and you're ready to enjoy the meal with your shrimp skewers.
