Sweet, tender shrimp are naturally lean, which makes them ideal for light, low-fat summer cooking. They also can be exceptionally convenient if you buy them peeled and deveined, either fresh or frozen. We love these recipes for weeknight dinners because they're flavorful, easy ― and quick.
Grilled Shrimp with Lemon-Pesto Rice
Prepared pesto makes this dish a snap, but you can use homemade if you have some on hand.
We love the simplicity and freshness of this recipe: Sizzle up some ginger and garlic, toss in some shrimp and green onions, and you're basically ready to serve.
Farfalle and Shrimp
The use of bow-tie pasta lends this dish extra child-appeal.
Kung Pao Shrimp and Spinach Salad
