Shrimp tacos remind me of breezy summer days hanging out at the beach with friends! The flavors and textures are fresh and comforting. And these healthy Weight Watchers chipotle shrimp tacos will delight you with only 3 WW points.

The best part about these tacos is that they are healthy, low in carbs, low in calories, and high in protein! Oh and they taste super scrumptious especially with fresh salted avocado and a bit of salsa. I also like sprinkling some freshly chopped cilantro on top.

I love pan frying the shrimp and veggies with a tiny bit of olive oil or cooking spray. A quick and easy 10 minute cook time with seasoning and lemon juice creates the most delightful flavors and textures with little effort. Then just fill up your favorite low carb tortillas for the perfect healthy meal.

4. Weight Watchers Shrimp Scampi

Pasta with seafood is one of the most scrumptious comfort foods to order when dining out. It is my favorite go-to entree for a special occasion like a birthday or anniversary. Now you can have a healthy Weight Watchers shrimp scampi with or without linguine right at home. With the noodles you get 3 WW points and without you get 0!

This shrimp dish is a total winner and can be made in less than 20 minutes. Plus you get 3 hearty portions, so it’s a great candidate for meal prep.

Traditionally, shrimp scampi is made with a lemon-garlic-butter sauce and served over a large portion of linguine or another type of pasta. We replace the butter with cooking spray and “sauce” with chicken broth. This results in a lighter, yet equally delicious meal.

Have you ever been to the south and had real southern food? Let me tell you shrimp and grits is a popular dish there, and for good reason. So I knew I had to recreate a lighter version to indulge in any day of the week. This recipe is low fat, low calorie, and free of butter and oil but retains its amazing taste.

The proper sized portions will satisfy your appetite and keep you full longer. Especially since this dish is made with the cheesiest, creamiest grits, and scrumptious shrimp, seasoning, and bell peppers.

9. Weight Watchers Shrimp Stir Fry

The best thing about healthy shrimp stir fry recipes is that they’re naturally low in calories and high in protein. Plus you can develop the best pan-seared sauce flavors with simple pantry staples like orange juice, spices, and a pinch of cornstarch. Then just add your favorite frozen vegetable mix, and you have the ultimate weeknight dinner in about 20 minutes with only 2 Weight Watchers points.

They’re very versatile and go with almost anything savory. The flavor profile created with this dish is heavenly. It reminds me of eating out with my favorite friends at my favorite Asian cuisine restaurants.

I also love the fact that this healthy shrimp recipe is so quick and easy, especially when you use a frozen vegetable mix. You can throw them straight in the pan frozen. The moisture releases into the pan and adds to the flavor and consistency of the light sauce.

10. Weight Watchers Grilled Shrimp

Fresh and zesty, this easy grilled shrimp with marinade will impress your taste buds! These healthy skewers remind me of summer weekends hanging out around the pool and grilling food with friends. You won’t believe this recipe is keto and Weight Watchers friendly too! It’s only 3 WW points and 5 carbs total!

You won’t believe this dish is so healthy and low calorie.

11. Weight Watchers Lemon and Garlic Shrimp

Bursting with the wonderful flavors of garlic, lemon and parsley, along with a punchy kick from the red pepper flakes, this lemon and garlic soup is truly delicious.

Not only will this make your mouth water but it’s also a great option, coming in at zero Weight Watchers points. Feel free to tweak the seasonings. Any kind of seafood seasoning would work here – Old Bay is a popular choice.

Enjoy this tasty shrimp dish as it is, or pair it with my creamy cucumber salad for a contrasting flavor, or perhaps you’d prefer brown rice or quinoa. Leftovers can be enjoyed either chilled or warmed back up the next day, although this recipe is so tasty there might not be any!

12. Spicy Shrimp and Pineapple Skewers

Grilling is much healthier than deep-frying, so you can enjoy making this recipe outside if the weather is on your side. Even if it isn’t, you can broil these just as easily or even pop them in the air fryer. 

Not only do you need just 3 ingredients for this recipe but they literally take 3 or 4 minutes to cook to perfection.

Along with the shrimp, you will need pineapple (fresh is best!) and any brand of jerk marinade you prefer. You could even make your own or, if you’re not really a fan of spicy flavors, feel free to sub any other dressing or sauce here.

13. Tex Mex Shrimp Rolls

No cooking is required in this easy shrimp rolls recipe and you can easily sub your favorite greens for the bread if you prefer your shrimp salad-style. 

The shrimp pairs with scallions, cilantro, salsa, and mayo. Feel free to use any kind of salsa you prefer, perhaps something different like tomatillo salsa. You can also add a splash of hot sauce if that’s your thing.

This recipe is great if you have cooked shrimp to work with but, if not, you can cook your own in a couple of minutes by boiling, broiling or steaming them.

14. Shrimp Kabobs with Pesto

Pesto, with its wonderful basil, parmesan and garlic flavors, is so harmonious with shrimp. Here, the shrimp are flavored with pesto and then threaded on to skewers to make Weight Watchers friendly kabobs.

Either make your own pesto using fresh ingredients and a food processor or use your favorite kind from the store, as you prefer.

You can eat the finished kabobs as they are, serve them with some garlic dressing or even have them with pita bread or over rice or quinoa. They’d also be good served with this sweet corn salad.

15. Weight Watchers Fettuccine Alfredo

You don’t have to miss out on creamy Italian dishes just because you’re on Weight Watchers. In fact, this version of fettuccine alfredo proves you can enjoy this iconic Italian favorite.

The shrimp with the garlic, cream cheese, parmesan, and fettuccine pasta, combine for a full-flavored result. Stick with nonfat milk and light cream cheese to trim down the WW points. Throw in some spinach or mushrooms if you want to add even more appeal and nutrients to the dish.

16. Slow Cooked Shrimp and White Beans

If the weather is more suited for comfort food than summery kabobs, try this crockpot recipe for shrimp. Cannellini beans, tomatoes and garlic team up with the shrimp, along with some fresh basil.

The beans cook with the seasonings over a few hours and then you can add the shrimp and give it another half hour on high or until they’re done. Served with fresh basil, this makes a delicious, aromatic and satisfying fall or winter meal.

It’s hearty and delicious and you can easily double or even triple the recipe. And if you’re a fan of beans, you’ll like this 3 bean salad too.

17. Shrimp and Vegetable Soup with Lemongrass and Lime

You will love this special shrimp soup recipe. The sesame oil, mushrooms, ginger, garlic, lemongrass, and other Asian inspired ingredients give it an exotic flair.

Since this is a zero-point soup, you will definitely want to have a second bowl. It’s nice served as it is or you could offer some extra chili sauce on the side for those who like it hot.

18. Weight Watchers Shrimp and Spinach Sauté

Fans of spinach might want to try this easy shrimp and spinach sauté. Choose large shrimp and fresh spinach for this. Asian seasoning and a splash of dry white wine round out the dish, or you could sub a splash of chicken broth instead.

The spinach is very nutritious and the brief cooking time keeps the shrimp juicy. You might want to add extra veggies, such as mushrooms, bell peppers, or a handful of corn.

This dish makes a nice lunch and you can have some crackers or bread alongside if you want to make it more substantial.

19. Weight Watchers Shrimp Fried Rice

Takeout fried rice is jam-packed with fat and calories and you don’t even want to know how many WW points a single serving is! Better than any takeout or restaurant version is this homemade shrimp fried rice.

It’s quick and simple to prepare. Along with the rice and shrimp, you will be adding garlic, frozen veggies, egg, soy sauce, and sesame oil, for that authentic Chinese taste. A small pinch of 5-spice is also amazing in this Weight Watchers shrimp recipe.

Serve this tasty fried rice dish with Sriracha or your favorite kind of hot sauce, as well as some sliced green onions to add color.

20. Skinny Shrimp Scampi Over Low Carb Zoodles

Swapping regular wheat noodles for zucchini noodles, or zoodles as they’re also known, is a great idea. In this shrimp scampi recipe, garlic, white wine or chicken broth, lemon juice, and parmesan contribute to the delectable flavor.

Use either fresh or thawed shrimp as you prefer, or even save time by using cooked shrimp. Some like their zoodles tender, while others prefer an al dente texture, so take your pick. 

If you do prefer them with a bit of crunch, they will only take a minute or two. You can also make zoodles with other vegetables such as sweet potato or butternut squash.

21. WW Shrimp Salad with Cumin and Lime Sauce

Shrimp is a versatile protein, like chicken or turkey, which means it can pair up with all kinds of delicious seasonings and be used in a variety of cuisines.

Here the shrimp is flavored with cumin and lime, and served with colorful, nutritional veggies such as corn and bell pepper, as well as tomatoes and avocado.

Not only is this salad packed with healthy ingredients and full of flavor, but it’s also very bright and colorful. Make this for the family and nobody will be able to resist a plateful.

22. Shrimp Ceviche

Have you tried ceviche before? If not, it’s a special seafood or fish-based dish where the seafood is ‘cooked’ by adding citrus juice rather than cooking it with heat.

This recipe can just as easily be made using ready-cooked shrimp but, if you do want to make it the traditional South American way, use raw shrimp and give it an hour or so in the lime juice. Once it’s pink and opaque, it’s done.

As well as the lime juice, this tasty dish boasts onion, tomatoes, cucumber, and cilantro. You can also add other ingredients, such as corn or olives. If you want to add some fish as well, that would be delicious.

23. Weight Watchers Cajun Shrimp Cups

Planning a party? Forget those deep-fried appetizers and instead make something light and tasty, such as these amazing shrimp cups. Egg roll wrappers make perfect ‘cups’ for the Cajun shrimp, spinach and cream cheese filling. A dash of lime juice adds a zesty zip.

At just 1 WW point per shrimp cup, you can afford to indulge in more than one. These look prettiest if you use tail-on shrimp and garnish the serving platter with fresh lime wedges.

24. Lemon and Herb Shrimp

You don’t need a whole lot of different ingredients to rustle up a mouthwatering shrimp dish. This recipe flavors the shrimp with lemon and herbs, as well as garlic, and is sure to put a smile on your face.

This recipe takes less than 5 minutes to cook, too, making it ideal for those busy weeknights when you don’t want to follow a lot of different recipe steps.

25. Honey Garlic Shrimp

A wonderful blend of sweet, spicy and savory, this recipe with honey and garlic is so good. Like many other low-point shrimp recipes, this one is quick and easy to throw together.

The shrimp get cooked first and then you make the sauce in the same pan. After adding some honey, the shrimp go back in and then everything is stirred together. 

This is just 3 WW points a serving and then you can choose from rice, zucchini noodles or anything else you want to have with it.

26. Oven Fried Shrimp

Deep-fried shrimp might not be a healthy option but oven ‘fried’ shrimp are a great alternative. Rather than using oil to fry the shrimp, the hot air from the oven does a very similar job. 

The shrimp will come out crispy if you use panko breadcrumbs and they will be every bit as tasty as the deep-fried alternative.

Use fresh or thawed shrimp here, as you prefer, and choose medium or large ones. The shrimp are first coated in egg and then covered in a Cajun-spiked, cheesy, crispy breadcrumb mixture. Once they’re golden and smell amazing, they’re ready to serve.

27. Weight Watchers Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil

Instead of using a massive soup pot, like with a traditional shrimp boil, this recipe uses a sheet pan and the oven to create a very similar result. 

Classic shrimp boil ingredients like potatoes, corn and even some smoked sausage go into the mix, and the wonderful flavor comes from the addition of Old Bay Seasoning, garlic and lemon.

It’s an easy recipe to make. Once you’ve par-boiled and drain the potatoes, you simply have to arrange the  ingredients in a sheet pan and pop it into the oven.

28. Healthy Bang Bang Shrimp

A lot of Chinese inspired dishes aren’t exactly Weight Watchers friendly, as they’re loaded with fat and sugar. But if you still want to enjoy a favorite, this bang bang shrimp is sure to hit the spot.

The shrimp pair with sweet chili sauce, hot sauce and Greek yogurt, along with broccoli, jasmine rice, and green onion. Use nonfat Greek yogurt to make a 10-shrimp serving only 1 WW point. That leaves you with some more points to play with, so why not enjoy a watermelon berry salad for dessert?

29. Weight Watchers Coconut Shrimp

Take your pick of the air fryer or the oven to cook these spicy, crunchy coconut shrimp to perfection. The dipping sauce is a blend of mango, lime and ginger, along with mint and jalapeño.

As for the shrimp, they’re coated in cornstarch then egg and finally a mixture of coconut and panko breadcrumbs. This makes an incredible party appetizer and is easy enough to make for a snack whenever that shrimp craving hits!
