Shrimp and Vegetable Fried Rice

“This is one of those easy meals to put together. It’s one where you kind of clean out of the fridge or freezer. I try to keep my freezer stocked just for times when I haven’t gotten to the grocery store. Refer to my pantry staples and you will have everything you need for a zombie apocalypse or at the least a couple of meals then you’re too lazy to busy to go to the store.” - Paula

Shrimp Scampi

“Shrimp scampi is a recipe that sounds super fancy (and they charge a fortune for at a restaurant), but it's very easy to make. The delicate shrimp are bathed in a buttery garlic sauce. You really taste the paprika, cayenne, and celery salt of Old Bay seasoning. Crushed pepper does give the dish a nice kick of spice. Shrimp scampi is typically served with linguine, but we loved the white rice. It really soaks up the butter sauce.” - Kitchen Crew

Margarita Shrimp Cocktail

“My husband and I had this in a restaurant a few years back and we loved it so much we began experimenting with a recipe of our own. This is what we've come up with after many, many tests. You really can't go wrong with shrimp so experimenting was wonderfully fun!” - Helene

Shrimp Potato Salad

“Shrimp is an unusual and great addition to this potato salad recipe. Onion and pepper not only add a little crunch, they give the dish nice flavor. What we really loved, though, was the parsley. It adds that something you just can't put your finger on. Very simple and easy, this recipe is a great twist on an old favorite.” - Kitchen Crew

“Made this tonight and absolutely loved it! Had a lot of flavor and super yummy!” - Tiffany

Shrimp Au Gratin

“Rich, creamy, cheesy, and buttery, this shrimp au gratin is definitely not a recipe to try if you're watching calories. But, oh my, it's delicious! Super simple to make, it's impressive when presented. The sauce just melts in your mouth and Panko crumbs on top add a nice crunchy texture. Simply divine.” - Kitchen Crew

Caprese and Shrimp Cocktail Sandwich “I got inspired by shrimp cocktail. I...

Caprese and Shrimp Cocktail Sandwich

“I got inspired by shrimp cocktail. I thought I could make a good sandwich with them. Since shrimp and avocado are a perfect marriage, I added avocado, tomato and then got an inspiration - mozzarella cheese since I love Caprese! This could be named ‘So Indulgent sandwich’ since all ingredients are my favorite. When you want to treat yourself, you want to give you just your favorite things/food, don't you? This is the one of the treats I have for JUST MYSELF!” - Hidemi
