To make some shrimp quesadillas, first grab a small bowl and toss ⅓ of a cup of chopped fresh cilantro, with 1 teaspoon of chilli powder, and 2 cups of shredded pepper jack cheese and mix.
Then, scatter ½ pound of cooked chopped shrimp over 4 fresh flour tortillas.
Next, throw on some shredded cheese and finish with 4 tortillas. Then, you will need to cook the quesadillas in a preheated non-stick, 12 inch skillet over a medium high heat for 3 minutes, or until golden brown.
To make a quick and simple shrimp bruschetta, cut up sixteen diagonal slices of French bread. These slices should be ½ an inch thick.
Once you have sliced the bread, toast it until golden brown on both sides.
Then, grab a bowl and mix ½ a pound of chopped shrimp with 3 tablespoons of fresh cilantro and ¾ of a cup of corn and black bean salsa. Once you have the mixture, spread it on the toast and serve up. This recipe serves 8 people, with 2 slices each.
Mango Salad With Shrimp
For a simple salad that can be made in seconds, grab a small bowl and your cooked shrimps. With a small bowl, add in a ¼ cup of mango chutney with 2 tablespoons of fresh lime juice, and ½ a teaspoon of grated lime peel.
Then, toss the mixture with 1 pound of shrimp and 1 chopped up mango. Add in a ¼ cup of chopped fresh mint, and mix together until combined.
Garlic Shrimp Linguine
If you want a delicious shrimp linguine, this recipe can take a little longer, but it is our absolute favorite way to enjoy a shrimp meal. First, bring to boil a large pot of water, add in 8 oz of linguine, and cook according to the instructions on the packet, but one minute less.
Then, scoop out 1 cup of pasta water and set aside, before draining the pasta. Next, melt 1 tablespoon of butter and melt in a non-stick skillet over a medium high heat.
After this, add in 3 minced garlic cloves, and stir until fragrant. Add in ¼ cup of dry white wine, and sizzle for 2-3 minutes until it is mostly reduced.
Next, add in 1 cup of heavy or thickened cream, along with a ½ cup of chicken or vegetable broth, along with ¾ cup of finely grated parmesan cheese. Then, mix together until the cheese melts and the mixture is completely combined.
The sauce should then thicken after simmering for about 2-3 minutes.
The next step is to add in your cooked shrimps, along with the linguine and pasta water you set aside earlier. Then mix together, and leave to thicken for 1 minute.
Once your sauce is to your desired thickness, sprinkle it with a little black pepper, and serve with a little parsley on top.
To conclude, adding shrimp to your meal can make for a delicious dinner. But, it is all too easy to cook too many at one time. This means that you will have to save some, store them and keep them until you are ready to use them again.
However, you have to be careful not to eat shrimps that have gone off, or gone bad. Shrimp typically last 3-4 days in the refrigerator when properly cooked and stored, whereas they may last 10-12 months when stored in the freezer.
If you do have leftover shrimp to use, then you can enjoy one of our tasty recipes out, and eat this seafood delight in all kinds of ways!
