Here’s another Hungry Girl recipe. This time, it’s for popcorn shrimp and it’s certainly comparable to the popcorn shrimp that you would buy frozen at the grocery store. We paired this with the butternut squash fries that I posted yesterday and it was a pretty fulfilling meal. Josh told me that he isn’t a huge fan of using only the Fiber One as the breading for things because it tastes a little too sweet to be on savory foods, so this time, I added in some Melba crumbs, Ranch dressing powder and reduced-fat parmesan cheese.
