Many shrimp recipes require hours of prep work, but who has the time to peel, clean, and de-vein tons of tiny shrimp? These easy shrimp recipes skip all the fuss and let you cut to the chase. In 30 minutes or less, you’ll be serving your family a tasty seafood dinner!

Linguine with Shrimp and Artichokes: A great romantic meal to make when it's just the two of you!

Healthy Shrimp Broccoli Fried Rice: This dish is fast and easy to prepare, colorful, flavorful and healthy!  Please note that the prep time below is deceiving as it is including the 25 minutes to cook the rice.
Pineapple Shrimp and Scallops: Serve this simple but delicious seafood dish over greens.
Shrimp Etouffee: This is a very easy shrimp etouffe recipe that utilizes your microwave! I usually add four dashes of hot pepper sauce to the dish, but bring the hot stuff to the table in case someone wants a zestier dinner!

Shrimp Caesar Salad:  This unique Caesar salad recipe complete with shrimp and tons of flavor will be a big hit at your next gathering! Precooked shrimp speeds up preparation. If you purchase raw shrimp, cook them in boiling water for two minutes or until done. Sriracha Thai hot sauce  adds spicy heat to the dressing; omit it for a mild dish. Serve with sauvignon blanc.
Seasoned Baked Shrimp: The spice mix in this recipe gives the shrimp an incredible flavor!

Stir-Fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce
: Neutral-tasting canola oil allows the flavors of orange juice, honey, ginger, and chilies to shine. It can also withstand the heat of stir-frying in this tasty take on sweet-and-sour shrimp. Serve over rice or udon noodles.

  • I make rice the chinese way the night before. 2 c rice and water 1 inch over -the rice and cover. Boil on med-high till spills over, lower flame to med-low for 15 min. Lower again to simmer for 15 min. Uncover, fluff and in the fidge for tomorrow. Next day scramble 3 eggs into one tsp oil in wok, put away.
    One tsp oil, stir fry whatever meat or shrimp, chicken, sausage, remove when done. Add 2 tsp oil to Wok med hi, I use one envelope Sunbird or Kikoman Stir Fry seasoning mix, with 3 tsp low salt soy sauce. Add to rice mix in Wok, stir until rce is colored with sauce, add meat/shrimp stir, add eggs, stir and finally peas and carrots or broccoli florets for color or whatever vegetable suits you. mix thoroughly and serve, its delicious.
