A somewhat spicy shrimp dish with a tasty tomato sauce with white beans, this is one fine shrimp dish.

For those of you who are always looking for delicious low-fat and low-carb meals, this is a terrific recipe. Plump shrimp are served in a savory sauce flavored with garlic and paprika, with a little heat from crushed red peppers. Shrimp dishes don’t get much better than this! It’s hearty and light at the same time.

Glenn found this wonderful recipe in Runners World magazine. Naturally low in fat and high in protein, shrimp are considered good for muscle recovery…and they taste wonderful!
