Carmel's Peach Salsa Shrimp

Aug 22, 2009

This recipe is so easy, quick and delish (especially if you like "zippy", zesty foods). It would be ideal paired with a light coleslaw, a vegetable medley or perhaps some long grain rice.


1/2 Jar Peach Salsa (the brands I use most often are "Mrs. Renfro's" & "Harris Teeter" Organic)
1/4 Cup Splenda
1 Teaspoon Lime Juice (or lemon)
1/8 Teaspoon Cumin
1 Heaping Teaspoon Minced Or Chopped Garlic
1/2 Teaspoon Onion Salt
"Gorton's" Grilled Shrimp Scampi


Mix first six ingredients in bowl; then prepare Shrimp Scampi according to directions on package.
Pour salsa mixture over shrimp; then let cook for approximately two to three minutes.

Peachy Keen Crustless Pie With Crumbled Topping

Aug 16, 2009

(Or Nifty Nectarines...Which Is What I Use)

4 Cups Nectarines Or Peaches, Quartered And Peeled (About 10 Medium)
1/2 Cup Granulated Splenda
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
2 Tablespoons Half-And-Half (Fat Free)
1 Egg

Crumble Topping:
1 Cup Almond Flour
1/2 Cup Packed Splenda Brown Sugar
1/2 Teaspoon Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Nutmeg
1/4 Cup (Or Less) Light Butter Or Margarine (1/2 Stick), Softened (Note: I only use 1/8 Cup=1/4 Stick)


Pre-heat oven to 425 degrees.

Arrange nectarines or peaches in 8x8 inch pan or dish (lightly sprayed with Pam).

Combine granulated Splenda and 1/2 Teaspoon nutmeg.

Sprinkle over fruit.
Beat egg with half-and-half.

Pour over fruit.

Mix all topping ingredients with a fork, until they resemble a course meal.

Sprinkle topping over fruit mixture.

Cover the edge of the crust with a ring of aluminum foil to prevent over-browning.

Bake for 30 minutes.

Remove the foil and continue baking until the top of the pie is golden brown (approximately five to ten minutes).
Cool slightly before cutting.

Serve (while still warm) over some of Eggface's vanilla protein ice cream!

Yummy, yum, yum, yum, yum! Yep, it's that good!

P.S. I adapted this version from one of my mother-in-law's old pie recipes and combined it with a recipe that a friend sent me recently.
