Because shrimp is versatile and zero points on both the WW Blue and Purple plans, it’s a simple option for appetizers, dinners, and even parties.
Bonus: Nobody thinks shrimp dishes are “diet”, so they won’t snub their noses like they would if you brought roasted cauliflower (which is tasty, too!).

Benefits of Garlic
We put garlic on pretty much everything, not just because of the amazing health benefits but also because it has such great flavor.
Our Mom always loads us up with garlic when we are sick. Did you know it can help fight colds? Crazy, right?!
Garlic can reduce blood pressure, too!

How to Make Garlic Shrimp
Line a baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside. This works best if your baking sheet has a large rim, or you could use a casserole dish. Preheat oven to 400*F.
Combine the olive oil, garlic, mustard, garlic, and Parmesan cheese in a glass mixing bowl. Add in salt, pepper, and any other herbs or seasonings you’d like, to taste.
Add shrimp and toss to combine. Transfer seasoned shrimp to parchment lined baking sheet or casserole dish and bake for about 8 minutes, without overcooking. Your cooking time may vary due to oven variances. You can tell the shrimp is done when they are firm and pink.
