6 Ideas for a Simple Shrimp Dinner

6 Ideas for a Simple Shrimp Dinner

Shrimp is delicious, nutritious, and healthy! That means it’s a great protein choice, especially if you aren’t exactly fond of other types of seafood.

Shrimp is delicious, nutritious, and healthy! That means it’s a great protein choice, especially if you aren’t exactly fond of other types of seafood. Since it only takes a few minutes to cook shrimp, it makes dinner a snap. 

Sheet Pan Boil

The classic shrimp boil 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 start a fire. Veggies will brown and caramelize, and to make it even better, indulge in some of our special house blend of seasonings! Plus, the shrimp turn out wonderfully tender. 

With Garlic and Butter 

Garlic and butter make an excellent combination, no matter what you put it on – seafood, steaks, chicken, and so on. It’s easy to do this shrimp dish on the stove, garnished with garlic, lemon, and olive oil. Serve it with rice, quinoa, or pasta; pairing it with a salad is great too!

On Pesto Pasta 

Speaking of pasta, let’s linger on pesto for a minute. It’s fast and easy, which makes it a fantastic choice for a shrimp-based dinner on a weeknight. All you do is coat the noodles with garlicky basil pesto and throw some shrimp on top. 

Simply Grilled 

Having some grilled or steamed shrimp is another mouthwatering way to enjoy some shrimp tonight. Lemon and garlic can add a punch of flavor, along with guest stars like extra virgin olive oil, dried oregano, onion powder, kosher salt, and black pepper. 

Marinara Style 

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 party a hit, even if it’s just in your household.  

Cajun Shrimp and Grits 

This dish is another way to put shrimp on your plate before it ends up in your belly. It’s famous around the world, and even carries Gordon Ramsey’s seal of approval. The grits are creamy, the shrimp is tender, and the veggie gravy is simply delectable
