Nancy, the shrimp is very easy. I dip cooked shrimp in beaten egg, then roll in unsweetened coconut. I put a small amount of olive oil in a pan and brown both sides. I also dipped mine in sugar free marmalade and it was as good as the shrimp at Outback. I make a dip for fresh fruit. I take 8 oz. light cream cheese, add some sugar free/fat free pudding mix (not the whole pkg). I use french vanilla. Mix well and add about 1/2 small tub of lite cool whip, and i add some of the juice from the mandarin oranges if too thick. It's very tasty and on the healthy side. I cut up strawberries, fresh pineapple, mandarin oranges, kiwi. You can add more fruit of your choice, but those are my favorites.
