Put down the takeout menu; forget about making another PB&J sandwich. Shrimp are here to save you from another boring weeknight dinner. It's as simple as popping a few defrosted shrimp in the oven or sautéing them quickly after you get home from work or school. It only takes about five minutes.

Shrimp can elevate any plain bowl of pasta, grains, or salad. Get inspired by our easy shrimp tacos with mango-avocado salsa, shrimp pasta with white wine sauce, or sautéed shrimp with lemony quinoa. Shrimp are here to save the day!

Shrimp are definitely a little more pricey than your favorite chicken thighs or ground beef, but still way cheaper than eating out. Having a frozen bag of shrimp on hand promises something a little more luxurious on a hard day of work where you just want something really good to eat.

Our favorite way to make shrimp is roasting, but if you don't want to turn on the oven, a quick sauté should do the trick. Pair a simple side dish with roasted shrimp and you'll have a filling meal.

We've got a little something different for every night of the week. Choose your own adventure.
