A lot of us have those days when we crave something battered and deep-fried. Rather than indulge now and pay the price later at the gym, try this alternative popcorn shrimp recipe. It is light and flavorful without the unnecessary grease and calories.

- Dip the shrimp one by one in egg white then toss them in the dry mix until they are completely coated
