Low Carb Shrimp Appetizer

This is a low carb appetizer, but also sounds good as a low carb snack!

Makes approximately 3 dozen low carb appetizers

1 1/2 c packed watercress leaves
8 oz cream cheese, softened
1/4 green onion slices
1 1/2 Tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 c mayo
1 1/2 lb. cleaned medium shrimp, cooked till barely pink
1/2 lb Chinese pea pods, blanched

Place all ingredients except shrimp and pea pods in food processor or blender. Process until well blended. Chill.Wrap shrimp with pea pod and secure with a toothpick (or a thin strip of leek or red pepper tied in a knot). Serve with watercress sauce.

More delicious low carb Chinese recipes are available in Nicholas Zhou's cookbook "Real & Healthy Chinese Cooking".
