Good Eats: Over 25 quick and easy shrimp recipes that pack in tons of flavor
If you enjoy a delicious home-cooked meal but don't have much time to cook (or the cooking skills), let shrimp be the answers to all your woes. Shrimp cooks in mere minutes and can be made into a multitude of flavorful, yet easy-to-make dishes, from tacos and soup to pasta and risotto. In the words Bubba from Forest Gump, "Shrimp is the fruit of the sea."
Shrimp can also be pretty cost effective, considering you can buy a big frozen bag for less than $15 at most grocery stores. Of course if you don't want to eat them all at once, throw a few in the fridge to thaw before heading to work in the morning. When you come back, they'll be ready to cook!
Switch up your usual weeknight take-out and check out some of our favorite shrimp recipes above.
