If you’re looking to spice up family dinners this summer, shrimp is an easy and affordable way to create a unique dish the whole family will enjoy. Whether you prefer to cook shrimp on the grill or on a stovetop, there’s nearly an unlimited number of dishes you can try out.
For those who are looking for a lighter dish, try grilled shrimp with a Greek twist. Simply grill or cook your shrimp as you normally would and mix it with tzatziki sauce, feta, and your favorite vegetables for a one-of-a-kind dish. We suggest tomatoes, spinach, and zucchini, but feel free to play around with the vegetable options until you find something you like. Add in a Greek pocketless pita for an even more authentic dish.
Grilled shrimp with honey barbecue sauce
This dish is sure to be a family favorite. Mix your shrimp with your favorite honey barbecue sauce before throwing it on the grill for added flavor and simply brush on more barbecue sauce as needed while the shrimp cook.
If you’re looking for a healthy option, consider making your own honey barbeque sauce. This dish goes great with your favorite vegetables, rice, quinoa and can be made as a tasty kabob for that true summer feel.
Summer clambake with shrimp
Another fun dish for the summer is a classic clambake with the addition of shrimp. Add in all of your favorite clambake sides like red potatoes and corn on the cob with the clams, shrimp and any other seafood you wish. Throw it all on the grill with your favorite spices and you’ll have a dish that will leave the entire family full and satisfied.
