Whether you dream of a zesty salad, a hearty pasta, or a fiery stir-fry, there’s no need to let these crustacean delights go to waste.

Shrimp Salad:

Mix the shrimp with diced celery, red onion, mayonnaise, lemon juice, fresh dill, salt, and pepper. Serve on a bed of lettuce or in a sandwich.

Shrimp Pasta:

Toss the shrimp with cooked pasta, garlic, cherry tomatoes, olive oil, chili flakes, and fresh basil or parsley. Sprinkle with parmesan cheese before serving.

Shrimp Tacos:

Warm up corn tortillas filled with shrimp and top with cabbage slaw, diced tomatoes, avocado slices, and a squeeze of lime. Drizzle with a tangy sauce from sour cream, lime juice, and chipotle peppers.

Shrimp Fried Rice:

Stir-fry cooked rice with soy sauce, garlic, peas, carrots, and scrambled eggs. Add shrimp towards the end to heat through. Garnish with green onions.

Shrimp Omelette:

Whisk some eggs, pour into a hot skillet, add the diced vegetables you choose, and finally, add the shrimp. Once set, fold and serve.

Shrimp Quesadilla:

Place the shrimp on half of a flour tortilla, sprinkle with cheese, and fold the other half over. Cook on a hot skillet until the cheese is melted and the tortilla is crispy. Serve with salsa and sour cream.

Shrimp Bruschetta:

Dice the shrimp and mix it with diced tomatoes, minced garlic, basil, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, and pepper. Spoon the mixture onto toasted slices of baguette.

Shrimp Stir-Fry:

Quickly stir-fry some vegetables like bell peppers, snap peas, broccoli, and carrots in a wok or pan. Add the shrimp and a sauce made from soy sauce, ginger, garlic, and a little brown sugar. Serve over rice or noodles.

Shrimp Grits:

Prepare creamy grits and top with shrimp, sautéed onions, and bell peppers. Drizzle with a sauce made from butter, garlic, and lemon juice.

Shrimp and Avocado Salad:

Combine diced avocado, red onion, cherry tomatoes, corn, and shrimp. Drizzle with a dressing made from olive oil, lime juice, cilantro, salt, and pepper.
Remember, shrimp is highly perishable, so be sure to use leftover shrimp within a day or two and always reheat them thoroughly. Overcooking can make shrimp rubbery, so when reheating, do it gently and just until they’re warmed through.
