Frozen shrimp is great to have on hand, as it is high in protein and good fats, like omega 3 fatty acids, to boost cognition, lower inflammation, and fill you up for longer. So, using shrimp in dinner recipes is a healthy way to get in that nutrition and while making a simple yet filling meal. Here are seven ways to use that frozen shrimp for dinner tonight.
This buttery, garlic shrimp has so much delicious flavor, and it’s ready in just seven minutes and requires just five ingredients. How simple is that? Serve over a bed of cauliflower rice, zoodles, beans, and more. Let yourself get creative here.
Don’t forget to use shrimp as a hearty protein topper for a salad. It is spicy and fresh, and it goes well with the miso flavored dressing on top. Add in avocado for that creaminess and boost of added fats, and enjoy a hearty salad for dinner.
Swap out steak and chicken for tacos and use shrimp instead. Shrimp has more omega 3 fats to boost heart health and it’s a good way to get in more nutrition from fish in a classic comfort food dish. Play with veggies—add in bell peppers, broccoli, and more.
Use a grill or stovetop to make this chili shrimp that has a great balance between sweet and spicy in the yummy, wholesome glaze without the unwanted sugars. Stir-fry is easy for weeknight meals, and you can make a bunch at once to keep on hand.
Got zoodles? Then pile on shrimp, which has protein and fats and makes the ideal pasta topping to boost satiety fast. This recipe is quick and easy to make, and a crowd-pleaser with the classic pair of herbs and garlic.
For a light and nutritious meal that uses shrimp as its main protein source on top, consider a stir-fry salad. Use sesame oil when stir-frying, as it adds a good flavor and can handle high heat cooking.
Go with a cool recipe for dinner on a warm evening, like this shrimp ceviche, which is refreshing and comes together in a matter of minutes. Plus, it is a great recipe for entertaining—just think of outdoor patio parties this summer. Use avocado to add in more fat and creaminess.
