    Thanjs for all your WONDERFUL RECIPES ! Can you please advise the points under the Points Plus WW plan for the Grilled Marinated Shrimp?

      Not sure about this one. It’s tough to figure out points for marinated recipes since it’s unknown how much of the marinade you’re actually consuming.

    If you consider 6 shrimp a serving (total shrimp 24 divided by 4 servings), would you be able to estimate the Points Plus per serving? If you make it and note how much marinade is left, that should indicate the amount of marinade absorbed by the shrimp. Thanks sooo very much!
