Grilled red pepper, scallions and lemon transform fat-free mayo into a colorful, flavorful dipping sauce for shrimp.

Ingredients

sweet red pepper(s)

1 medium, cored and quartered

olive oil cooking spray

3 spray(s)

fresh parsley

1 cup(s), fresh, leaves (loosely-packed)

fat free mayonnaise

½ cup(s)

uncooked scallion(s)

7 medium, chop 1 and slice the others into 6 pieces each

lemon zest

2 tsp, freshly grated

fresh lemon juice

1 Tbsp

garlic clove(s)

1 medium clove(s)

uncooked shrimp

36 large, fresh, peeled

table salt

½ tsp

black pepper

½ tsp, freshly ground

Instructions

  1. Preheat grill or grill pan. Coat red pepper with cooking spray. Grill, turning as needed, until lightly charred and tender, about 10 to 15 minutes.
  2. To make sauce, place grilled pepper quarters, parsley, mayonnaise, 1 chopped scallion, lemon zest, lemon juice and garlic in a food processor. Pulse until mixture is blended and ingredients are finely chopped; set aside.
  3. Thread 3 pieces each of shrimp and sliced scallions onto each of 12 metal skewers. (Note: If you’re using wooden skewers, soak them in water for 30 minutes before use to prevent charring.) Lightly coat shrimp and scallions with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and black pepper.
  4. Grill skewers, turning once, until shrimp are just cooked through, about 2 to 4 minutes. Yields 2 skewers and about 2 tablespoons of sauce per serving.

Notes

If you're short on time, substitute water-packed roasted peppers for the grilled pepper.
