Pan-Seared Shrimp with Walnut and Herb Gremolata
Fresh herbs and lemon make a bright, tasty topper for succulent shrimp. Fish and shellfish are excellent sources of protein for fewer calories than most meat. Paired with spinach and rice pilaf, this weeknight-friendly main comes together in just 15 minutes.
Shrimp and Broccoli Rotini
Sometimes simple and easy is best, as in this no-frills shrimp, broccoli, and pasta dish. Try switching to whole-grain rotini for a nutrition boost. You can use fresh or frozen shrimp in this recipe, just make sure to look for the peeled and deveined kind without any additives.
Tuscan White Bean Salad with Shrimp
Fragrant fresh rosemary and mild cannellini beans are a fantastic duo. You can also mash the two together for crostini or stir them into soup. Add the rosemary to the dressing rather than to the simmering pot of beans so its flavor doesn't overpower. Poaching shrimp in the shells helps keep the shrimp from overcooking.
Shrimp Fried Cauliflower Rice
This five-ingredient main is a great way to get more seafood into your weeknight rotation. Seek our shrimp that's free of sodium tripolyphosphate (STP), a common preservative that significantly boosts the sodium in your shrimp. Can't find riced cauliflower? Make your own by pulsing cauliflower florets in a food processor until crumbled. Easy!
