An Actor's Pantry - SHRIMP JAMBALAYA

This probably isn't the Shrimp Jambalaya you are used to. The recipe was created for a special weight loss eating program and was so delicious I had to share. Also, a couple of people asked for the recipe after I posted this picture on facebook.

4 oz. shrimp
2 oz. chopped red bell pepper
1 oz. chopped celery
1 oz. chopped onion
2 cups water*
1 tsp. garlic
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
1/2 tsp. thyme

In a fat-free pan (whatever that means) with water, heat bell pepper, onion, garlic, celery and thyme. Add boiled shrimp. 

Yup, it's just that simple.

*I actually used just a little bit of water to soften the vegetables. I didn't want it to be soupy and I like my celery to have a little crunch.

This is one single serving
