Shrimp is one of the most delicious, nutritious, and healthy kinds of seafood available.

Shrimp Pan Boil

This dish doesn’t need to be a treat for a special occasion. When you make it in the oven, you won’t need to use a large pot or fire. You can add vegetables like broccoli and use your blend of seasonings to improve your boil. When cooked in the oven, the shrimp turn out wonderfully tender.

Shrimp With Garlic And Butter

Garlic and butter make an excellent combination. This combination tastes great not only with seafood but with steaks and chicken. You can prepare this dish pan-seared style, garnished with garlic, lemon, and olive oil. You can serve rice, quinoa, or pasta or pair it with a salad.

Pesto Pasta

Pesto pasta is fast and easy to cook and a good dinner option. This is a tasty Italian-based dish and generally takes about 20 minutes to prepare. You can also add your choice of vegetables to your pasta. Many people often use vegetables like tomatoes, Coat the noodles with garlicky basil pesto and throw some shrimp on top.

The Grilled Option

Grilled or steamed is another mouthwatering way to enjoy some shrimp. Lemon and garlic can add a dose of flavor, along with additional ingredients like extra virgin olive oil, dried oregano, onion powder, kosher salt, and black pepper.

Cooked with Marinara

Believe it or not, shrimp and marinara make a tasty tag team of flavor for your taste buds. Pairing with pasta and salads can make your next dinner meal a staple in your recipe book.

Shrimp And Grits

This dish is another way to put shrimp on your plate before it ends up in your belly. It is a renowned and staple dish for chefs of all levels. The way to go is to serve the grits creamy while the shrimp cooks until it is tender. Some people also opt to add gravy to their shrimp and grits.
