Weight Watchers Shrimp Fandango

1 tablespoon peanut oil
1/4 cup yellow bell pepper, large dice
1/4 cup red bell pepper, large dice
1 clove garlic, minced
10 ounces large shrimp, shelled and deveined
1/4 cup dry vermouth
1/2 cup Chinese snow peas, steamed until tender crisp
1/2 cup julienne cut carrots, steamed until tender crisp
1/2 cup scallions, sliced
Dash of salt
Dash of hot sauce

In a 10−inch skillet heat oil over medium heat; add and garlic and sauté until peppers are tender, about 2 minutes. Increase heat to high; add shrimp and cook, stirring constantly, until shrimp begin to turn pink, about 2 minutes. Add vermouth; continue to stir and cook until liquid is reduced, about 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients; cook, stirring constantly, until heated through. May be served over hot rice or rice noodles if desired. Serves 2.


Wine−Steamed Clams

1 medium onion, chopped
2 small garlic cloves, sliced thin
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 cup dry white wine or dry vermouth
2 dozen small hard−shelled clams, scrubbed well
1 cup fresh coriander sprigs, washed and spun dry
1/2 cup fresh flat−leafed parsley leaves, washed and spun dry
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice, or to taste
Fresh coriander and/or parsley sprigs (for garnish)

In a large heavy saucepan cook onion and half of garlic in oil over moderately low heat, stirring, until softened. Add wine or vermouth and simmer, uncovered, stirring occasionally, 5 minutes. Add clams and steam, covered, over moderately high heat 5 to 7 minutes, transferring them as they open with tongs to a serving bowl and reserving cooking liquid. (Discard clams that are unopened after 7 minutes.) Keep clams warm.

In a blender blend together coriander, parsley, butter, remaining garlic, lemon juice, and reserve cooking liquid until smooth. Pour sauce over clams and toss to combine. Garnish clams with herbs and serve with crusty Italian or French bread.
