Not only are these healthy dinner ideas Weight Watchers-approved, but I bet the whole family will reach for seconds.

They’re quick, colorful, and bursting will flavor.

So, if you’re ready to get cooking, try one of these insanely good Weight Watchers shrimp recipes – you won’t be disappointed.

1. Weight Watchers Garlic Shrimp 

Garlic and shrimp are a fantastic combination that’s impossible to screw up. But since there’s usually lots of butter in the mix, you’ll want to stick closely to this recipe.

The flavors are a bright combination of garlic, cilantro, and lemon, plus a sprinkle of paprika. How easy is that?

With just two points per serving, this one is all about the shrimp. So, for a well-rounded meal, try one of these easy vegetable side dishes.

2. Weight Watchers Oven Fried Shrimp 

We all know baking is healthier than frying, but it just doesn’t give you the same texture. We want food with golden, crispy edges, right?

Enter this oven-fried shrimp recipe. The jumbo shrimp are delightfully crunchy on the outside and perfectly tender on the inside. 

The trick is to use Panko breadcrumbs, which add the crunch you crave without requiring a ton of oil.

I like to finish mine off with a simple squeeze of lemon right before serving. It makes the flavors pop without costing more points as creamy dipping sauces do.

3. Spicy Shrimp and Quinoa Bowl for Two 

Cooking a Weight Watchers dinner for two? You simply can’t go wrong with this scrumptious dish. 

Between the shrimp and the quinoa, these bowls are rich in protein. They’re also fresh in flavor, thanks to the addition of sauteed tomatoes and zucchini.

The beauty of quinoa bowls is that there’s always room for variation. 

Take a look at your plan and mix up the veggies if you like. You can even try different dressings to get more bang for your buck. 

4. Weight Watchers Shrimp Fried Rice 

Getting take-out is pretty much impossible when tracking points. Luckily, you can still have mouthwatering Asian shrimp from the comfort of your home with this simple rice dish.

Quick and healthy, it’s great for a light lunch or dinner and is sure to fill you up.

The combination of juicy shrimp, scrambled egg, and umami rice is very satisfying. And since you’ll use frozen veggies, it’s budget-friendly too.

5. Creamy Lemon Parmesan Shrimp

One of the things most people miss when counting points is indulging in a fancy dinner. That’s all about to change, thanks to this creamy, five-point shrimp dish.

Jumbo shrimp are swimming in a creamy citrus sauce with a pleasant garlic bite.

You’ll also love the fresh parsley and extra sprinkle of parmesan cheese – which might add a point, but is more than worth it!

6. Grilled Shrimp Skewers 

Sometimes, I just want grilled shrimp. Nothing too fancy, just a touch of seasoning to let the sweet, meaty flavors of shrimp shine.

And this recipe nails it! 

The seasoning is a simple mix of garlic, paprika, and salt. You’ll also need an acidic component and though this recipe calls for lemon, I highly recommend using lime or orange instead.

Since these babies are so simple, they’d be perfect for people doing Keto too.

7. Shrimp Foil Packets with Zucchini 

I’m all for easy dishes that minimize cleanup. That’s why I love these foil packets so much – you don’t even need to clean to oven tray when you’re done!

Toss some shrimp, veggies, and spices on foil, then seal it up. Let it cook in the oven for about 15 minutes and dinner is ready.

This is also a fantastic dinner to serve on your next camping trip. Just add potatoes for those not counting points.

8. Weight Watchers No-Cook Tex-Mex Shrimp Rolls 

I typically opt for Weight Watchers chicken recipes when I need a quick, light lunch. But these Tex-Mex rolls are ideal for a grab-and-go meal.

There’s zero cooking involved, which means you’ll use either leftovers or pre-cooked shrimp (frozen or fresh). If using frozen, be sure to let it thaw and drain before use.

Mix the shrimp with mayo and salsa, then slap that on a roll. It’s fast, easy, and worth just three freestyle smart points!

9. Southwestern Shrimp & Black Bean Salad  

This Weight Watchers recipe is one you’ll want to keep in the weekly rotation. 

Full of pantry staples like black beans, brown rice, and spice, there’s also fun color and sweetness from the corn.

Use pre-cooked shrimp from the store if you’re short on time, or quickly sauté as much as you need. It should only take a few minutes and the added heat is a nice contrast to the rest of the dish.

This salad is great for lunch or dinner, and also a terrific dish to bring to a potluck or cookout.

10. Weight Watchers Sheet Pan Shrimp Boil 

Seafood boils typically require a very large pot and a ton of work. What’s so great about this recipe is it’s virtually fuss-free and has smaller portions. 

Potatoes, corn, sausage, and shrimp bake in the oven to cut down on work. Of course, it wouldn’t be a proper boil without some Old Bay seasoning and a lemon wedge or two. 

Get the hot sauce ready because this meal won’t last long!

11. Shrimp in Red Sauce

This hearty and rich red sauce tastes incredible with pasta, quinoa, roasted veggies, or even slathered on bread.

Aside from the succulent shrimp, what I love about this red sauce is how fresh it is without adding sugar. That’s not something I can say for most store-bought brands. 

Also, when you make sauce at home, it allows you to add veggies to the mix. Dice and roast red peppers, onions, and carrots, then blitz them and mix in with the tomatoes for a boost of goodness.

12. Weight Watchers Shrimp Spaghetti

If the last recipe now has you craving spaghetti, here’s one for you. 

This 30-minute dinner combines shrimp with garden-fresh tomatoes for a light and tantalizing pasta dish. 

Sautéing the tomatoes on the stovetop with clam juice makes them impossibly juicy, so don’t skip this step!

13. Weight Watchers Shrimp Scampi 

Shrimp scampi is always a winner, and it’s usually kid-friendly too.

But to make it Weight Watchers-friendly, omit the butter and use olive oil instead. 

Don’t worry, it’s still glowing with flavor, thanks to the lemony white wine sauce and a large amount of garlic.

14. Sheet Pan Roasted Shrimp & Broccoli 

This clean eating dinner is another fine choice for weeknights.

It’s full of garlicky broccoli and delightfully chewy shrimp. Plus, it takes just 30 minutes to make.

At first glance, the shrimp may seem unadorned, but I’ll tell you a little secret – they get a boozy bath in white wine and lemon before roasting. How’s that for flavor?

15. Healthy Bang Bang Shrimp

I’m a big fan of bang bang shrimp, especially from the Cheesecake Factory. But I’m not a fan of the calories in the mix!

If you can relate, you have to try this lightened-up version that’s just as flavorful, but seriously lacking in pesky calories.

The spicy shrimp cooks in the Air Fryer so it’s not overloaded with grease. That also means it’s Weight Watchers-approved, clocking in at just four smart points.

For a full meal, serve this with some white rice and steamed veggies.

16. Skinny Barbecued Shrimp 

Louisiana certainly knows a thing or two about seafood and this recipe, though skinny, doesn’t disappoint.

The sauce is a luscious combination of Caesar dressing, garlic, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne, white wine, and more.

Toss the shrimp that creamy-umami blend, let it cook for a few minutes, then it’s time to chow down.

This may not be your standard Southern barbecue, but it’s Weight Watchers acceptable and too good to pass up!

17. Honey Garlic Shrimp 

Garlicky, sweet, and succulent, honey garlic shrimp comes together in minutes. 

You’ll make the sauce, coat the shrimp, and skewer. After a couple of minutes on the grill, it’s ready.

Barbecues or warm weeknights, this gluten-free recipe will cost you five points. 

So while it’s not a zero-calorie Weight Watchers soup recipe, you can still have something yummy and stay on track.
