  • 1/3 cup nonfat Greek yogurt or 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (about 1/2 lime)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 lime, zested
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 4 egg whites
  • 3/4 cup cornmeal
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 pound medium rock shrimp (90 to 100 count), shelled and cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • Spray cooking oil


Step 1

Dipping sauce:

Step 2

If using regular yogurt, place it in a strainer lined with a paper towel. Place the strainer over a bowl and allow to drain and thicken for 20 minutes.

Step 3

Combine the thickened or Greek yogurt, mayonnaise, lime juice, ancho chili powder and lime zest in a small bowl and mix well to incorporate. Set aside.

Step 4

Prepare the Shrimp:

Step 5

Place flour, chili powder, garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a shallow bowl and stir with a fork to incorporate. Place egg whites in another shallow bowl and beat lightly. Place cornmeal, 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper in a third bowl and stir with a fork to incorporate. Toss the shrimp, a few at a time, in flour until well coated. Shake off excess flour, then dip in egg whites. Transfer to cornmeal mixture and toss to cover all sides. Reserve coated shrimp on a baking sheet or piece of parchment paper and repeat with remaining shrimp.

Step 6

Preheat broiler. Brush a large cookie sheet with the oil and heat the oiled sheet under broiler for 3 minutes. Remove from oven and quickly arrange shrimp in a single layer on the cookie sheet. Spray with cooking spray. Place shrimp under broiler and broil until crisp and browned, about 5 minutes.

Step 7

Serve shrimp with dipping sauce.
