Shrimp Etouffee

I have to give props to my Husband on this recipe as he’s the one who came up with it. I told him one day I felt like having a low fat shrimp dish and this is what he created. This dish is so good and really easy to make. Total cooking time is about 30 minutes and for 1 cup it 2 weight watcher points. Add a half a cup of rice and you have a simply delicious 4 point dish that tastes so rich and creamy. I highly recommend trying this dish at least once.


  • 1 tbsp low fat margarine
  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green onion
  • 1/2 cup chopped green bell pepper

  • 1 (10.75 ounce) can condensed low fat cream of chicken soup
