You can luxe up your dinner party with simple seafood ingredients for only 15 minutes. This easy seafood recipe is recommended for all who struggle to lose weight. Why so? Well, the nutritional value of 100 g (3.5oz) of cooked shrimp is only 99 calories! Shrimp is stuffed with different minerals, including Potassium, Selenium, Sodium, Zinc, and many others.
Another good point about our recipe is mussels and squid. If you are trying to put down some extra pounds, these seafood kinds give you a lot of nutrition without bad fats. Prepare them in a way that does not add calories, avoiding using a lot of oil or butter; prefer boiling, grilling, or simmering. It takes a little extra effort to wow guests at your summer cookout parties. Just make a seafood mix recipe, and you can't go wrong.

Please follow the next steps:
Heat a grill to medium-high heat—spray the grill rack with olive oil.
Combine melted butter, lemon-pepper seasoning, and salt in a large bowl. Mix well.
Arrange shrimps, mussels, and squid on baking sheets.
Drizzle with 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt, and pepper—transfer seafood to grill.
Cook shrimps and mussels for about 2 minutes per side, 30 seconds per side for squid, or cook the seafood until it turns pink.
Serve with sliced avocado, fresh spinach, and a spoon of dressing.
Garnish with lemon wedges and fresh basil leaves.
If you choose frozen seafood, during cooking immediately (without defrosting), place them in boiling water to remain juicy and retain vitamins.
20 minutes after each meal, have a glass of warm water. This both encourages you to eat less and aids digestion.
You can substitute butter with lemon juice or soy sauce to intake fewer calories.
