Dinner? Party of two? Try Key West Shrimp With Key Lime Cocktail Sauce

Don't like to cook because there's too much food left over? Here's a light dish for two — and it's safe for diabetics.

Key West Shrimp With Key Lime Cocktail Sauce

¾ pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined

1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons key lime (or lemon or lime in a pinch) juice

6 tablespoons ketchup

Several drops hot pepper sauce

Fill a medium saucepan three-quarters full with water. Add the shrimp and 1 tablespoon key lime juice. Make sure the water covers the shrimp, adding more if needed. Bring the water to a simmer with the bubbles just starting around the edge of the pot; the water will start to turn white. Take off the heat immediately and let sit 1 minute. Drain the shrimp and plunge into cold water if serving cold or serve immediately if serving hot.

Mix the ketchup, 2 teaspoons lime juice and hot sauce together and taste. Add seasoning if needed.

Makes 2 servings.
