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.
