Wondering what to cook when you’re short on time but craving something scrumptious? Well, let’s talk about shrimp—the ultimate quick fix! Here are three easy options that pack in a lot of flavor. 

Garlic Butter Shrimp

This dish typically starts with fresh or thawed shrimp, which are sauteed in a generous amount of butter. The key to this dish is the garlic. Mince the garlic and add it to the butter to add a delicious flavor punch. Add a splash of lemon juice and a sprinkle of fresh parsley to finish. 

Grilled Shrimp Skewers

Grilled shrimp skewers are perfect for outdoor barbecues or a simple family dinner. Start by marinating the shrimp in a blend of olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, and herbs like cilantro or parsley. Thread the shrimp onto skewers. Grill the skewers over medium heat until the shrimp are pink and slightly charred. 

Shrimp Stir-Fry

This dish is a vibrant mix of shrimp and a variety of vegetables like bell peppers, broccoli, and carrots, all stir-fried in a hot wok or frying pan. Just make sure to cook the shrimp first and then set aside, so they don’t overcook while the vegetables are being prepared.
