Garlic Shrimp and Black Beans and Lime (WW 8 Points)

This is a healthy, delicious go-to week-night dish that's easy and quick to prepare, but impressive enough for company.

Servings: 2

4 Garlic Cloves, sliced, divided
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil, divided
12 Large Shrimp, peeled, deveined
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Chipotle
1 Lime, zested and juiced
Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Pepper, to taste
1 Chipotle Chile
1 Kafir Lime Leaf, preferably fresh (optional)
1 Can Chopped Tomato, we use Muir Glen with either chipotle or adobo for extra spice (you can also use fresh tomatoes in season)
1 Tablespoon Tomato Paste
1 Can Black Beans (15 ounce) rinsed and drained
1/4 Cup Taquila
1/4 Cup Chicken Broth
1 Tablespoon Chopped Cilantro
1/2 Avocado, sliced

  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Combine 2 garlic cloves, 1/2 Tbsp. oil, shrimp, chipotle and lime zest in a medium bowl; season with salt and pepper and toss to evenly coat shrimp.
  • Heat remaining 1/2 Tbsp. oil in a large, heavy, ovenproof skillet over medium heat. Add 2 garlic cloves, chile, and kafir lime leaf and cook, stirring constantly, just until fragrant, 1-2 minutes (do not allow garlic to burn). Add tomato; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until tomato is completely broken down, about 5 minutes.
  • Add tomato paste and cook, stirring constantly, until paste is deep red and caramelized, 3-4 minutes.
  • Stir in beans, taquila and broth. Bring to a brisk simmer and cook until juices are slightly reduced and thickened, 3-4 minutes. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • Scatter shrimp over beans in an even layer.
  • Roast for 12 minutes. Drizzle lime juice over shrimp and beans; garnish with cilantro and sliced avocado. Serve over rice, if desired
