No matter the time of year, I’m always in the mood for seafood.
Some things, like salmon and tilapia, are easy to make. Others, like scallops and seared ahi, take a while to master.
One of the easiest seafood items to whip up is shrimp, which is why I have a few go-to shrimp recipes in my collection. The best part about my shrimp dishes is that they don’t take a lot of time, either — perfect for those busy weeknights!
If you’re a shrimp lover and you haven’t yet tried them, I’m sure they’ll become ones that you keep around for a while.
Between zesty salsa and fresh-grilled kebabs, they’re perfect for small get-togethers or family meals.
My Favorite Shrimp Recipes
If you’re looking for your next new weeknight dinner recipe, you can try this tasty and traditional shrimp dish.
My Sautéed Shrimp with Tomatoes, Herbs and Feta is filled with Italian flavors and it can be made in under 30 minutes.
I like to serve it with pasta or rice for a hearty, filling meal. But if you’re looking for a lighter fare, you can cool the shrimp and put it on salad, or serve it with a side of toasted French bread.
It makes enough to serve my family of four, but if you’re making it for yourself, you can save some overnight in the fridge… it’s a good leftover dish, too!

With Memorial Day coming up, everyone is looking for simple and tasty appetizers to bring to their neighborhood gathering.
I hate to toot my own horn, but my Fresh and Easy Zesty Shrimp Salsa is one of those appetizers that people enjoy year after year!
It’s filled with shrimp (of course), fresh cilantro, tomatoes and onions. The salsa also has some jalapeños for a little spicy kick… but don’t worry, you can keep those out if you don’t like the added heat.

You may have tried fettuccine Alfredo before. But this fettuccine recipe could completely change the way you look at the dish.
Not many people add shrimp to their alfredo dish, but this is the way my family has always enjoyed it.
I used to make it back when I was on my own after college and was working as a young news reporter in West Lafayette, Indiana.
It was so easy to make… and my friends loved it too!
HERE is the recipe.
I use the Argentian Red shrimp from Happy to Meat You in this recipe. And let me tell you, it makes all the difference.
Delicate. Sweet. And with a lobster-like flavor.
I love ordering shrimp scampi when I’m out at a restaurant. But I’m going to toot my own horn here and say this recipe rivals some of the best scampi dishes I’ve had.
The ingredient list looks a little long. But most of the additions are seasonings. And they combine to create the perfect flavor!

Here’s another recipe that’s great for Memorial Day weekend or any other summer barbecue.
While kebabs are a classic warm-weather recipe, I don’t see a lot of seafood versions. Not only do these include shrimp, they include tender, lemon-marinated halibut.
Perfect for the grill, the tang of the lemon complements the mild taste of the seafood. And who doesn’t love food on a stick?
So grab your skewers and get to cooking the kebabs HERE.
Clearly, shrimp is one of my favorite ingredients to use in summer recipes! What one looks the best to you?
