1/8 tsp. paprika

Dash each salt and black pepper

Dash cayenne pepper

**Two 6-inch natural corn tortillas

2 tbsp. fat-free plain Greek yogurt

1/3 cup shredded cabbage

1 lime wedge

2 tbsp. natural salsa with 90mg sodium or less per 2-tbsp. serving

1 oz. (about 2 tbsp.) chopped avocado

**Note: Substitute romaine lettuce leaf for the corn tortillas to reduce carbohydrate and calorie count.


In a medium bowl, coat shrimp with spices.

Cook and stir shrimp for about 4 minutes, until cooked through and blackened. Remove pan from heat; clean, if needed.

Re-spray, and return to medium-high heat. Cook each tortilla until hot and lightly browned, about 1 minute per side.

Spread Greek yogurt down the center of the tortillas.

Top with cabbage, and squirt with juice from the lime wedge. Top with blackened shrimp, salsa, and avocado, and fold ’em up.
