Whether you observe Lent or you’re simply on the hunt for some new meatless meals, I dug up a few of my delicious dishes you can make as you head into the upcoming season.

Of course I enjoy recipes like my Cheesy Bacon Broccoli Quiche and my Cheesesteaks Three Ways, but I also like to throw some vegetarian and fish-based options into the mix.

So today, I’m sharing some of my favorite meatless meals including a NEW RECIPE at the bottom of the page. Don’t miss out on this one!

Halibut and Shrimp Seafood Kebabs

I originally made this recipe around Memorial Day but I promise you, it works well no matter the time of the year.

This recipe is special because it includes two types of seafood, and if you ask me, the more the merrier! In addition to the flavor that the halibut and shrimp naturally provide, I created a flavor-packed marinade you can use to take this recipe to a whole new level.

HERE is the recipe to make the kebabs for your next cookout!

Stuffed Zucchini

My stuffed zucchini isn’t vegetarian, but you can easily omit the added sausage for a dinner that’s just as tasty as the original!

Stuffed Zucchini

Not all of my recipes are the “healthiest” but this is one that is definitely on the healthier side. Low in carbs and filled with nutrients, it’s a good option for those looking to be a little more health conscious.

Newport Beach Clam Chowder

This isn’t the first time I’ve shared my Newport Clam Chowder, but I feel like you all like this one!

Newport Beachs New England Clam Chowder

I originally tried it when I was a little girl living near Newport Beach, CA. We actually went “clamming” and gathered the ingredients for dinner that evening!

The trick to this recipe is that it actually includes corn and sour cream… who would have thought! But before you knock it you have to give it a try. Find the recipe HERE.

Sautéed Shrimp with Tomatoes, Herbs & Feta

Shrimp can be used as an appetizer, as an ingredient or as the main star of a meal! That’s why I always try to keep some frozen in my house.

Sautéed Shrimp with Tomatoes, Herbs & Feta

Sautéed Shrimp with Tomatoes, Herbs & Feta

This recipe is one of my absolute favorites. The shrimp is accompanied by traditional Italian flavors and it can be served in multiple ways.

Ingredients

  • 6 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/4 cup onion, diced
  • 1-1/2 cups canned chopped tomatoes (juice reserved)
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 2 tablespoons dried parsley
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1- 1/2 lbs raw shrimp with tails
  • 1/4 – 1/2 cup Feta cheese, crumbled
  • Cooked pasta (optional for serving)
  • Cooked rice (optional for serving)

Instructions

  1. Heat the olive oil in a medium-size sauté pan over medium heat. Cook the onion for about 5 minutes and then add the tomatoes (with their juice), wine, parsley, oregano, salt and pepper and cook for another 5 minutes.
  2. Add the shrimp and cook just until pink, approximately 2 minutes. (Be careful not to overcook the shrimp or they’ll taste rubbery).
  3. Add the Feta and cook until melted. Serve over the prepared noodles or rice, if desired.

And this recipe? It’s one of my absolute favorites. The shrimp is accompanied by traditional Italian flavors and it can be served in multiple ways. I like to serve it over pasta, but you can also put it atop rice, over a salad or with some crusty French bread.

So if you’re in need of some inspiration for meatless meals, you can use this list of mine for all your seafood and veggie needs.

From my kitchen to yours,
