Shrimp are a great low-fat protein. Instead of frying them, we bake them at high heat. The cornbread stuffing protects the meat and becomes golden and crisp.

Mince 4 shrimp (discard tails) and stir into stuffing along with egg.

  • Run a paring knife from head to tail along the backs of remaining shrimp, slicing almost completely through. Open, then remove vein with knife. Pack each with about 2 tablespoons stuffing. Brush a rimmed baking sheet with oil and arrange shrimp, stuffing side up. Bake until stuffing is golden and shrimp are opaque throughout, 18 to 20 minutes.

  • Meanwhile, toss together sliced celery, lettuce, dressing, and blue cheese. Serve alongside shrimp.
