Szechwan Sweet and Spicy Shrimp

One more delicious and simple low fat shrimp recipe. I love cooking with shrimp. Just 1/2 cup is 2 weight watcher points and it’s such a versatile ingredient. Here’s a nice sweet and spicy dish that took about 20 mins to prepare. Each 1/2 serving with a bit of sauce is 3 weight watcher points (old). Serve this is 1/2 cup of rice and you have a nice rounded 5 point meal the family will enjoy. Please note this only made 3 servings, please adjust the amount of ingredients to make enough for your family.
