This anchovy-spiked dressing—which can be made in 10 minutes—goes well with grilled shrimp. It’s a healthier version of the classic dressing and uses light mayonnaise and yogurt.


  • ½ cup packed parsley leaves

  • 1 to 2 anchovy fillets

  • 1 scallion, coarsely chopped

  • ½ small garlic clove

  • ¼ cup light mayonnaise

  • ¼ cup plain low-fat yogurt

  • 1 tablespoon white-wine vinegar

  • Coarse salt and ground pepper

  • 1 pound large shrimp

  • Oil, for grates


  1. For the sauce, in a food processor, pulse parsley, anchovies, scallion, and garlic until scallion and parsley are finely chopped. Add mayonnaise, yogurt, and vinegar; pulse until combined. Season with salt and pepper.

  2. For the shrimp, heat the grill to medium high; lightly oil grates. Peel and devein shrimp. Thread shrimp horizontally onto five 12-inch-long skewers. Grill, turning skewers over once, until shrimp are opaque throughout, 4 to 6 minutes. Remove from skewers, and if desired, serve over watercress with lemon wedges
