Perfect for using up fresh or frozen shrimp, here is a list of 15 of healthy and delicious shrimp recipes the whole family will enjoy.
I always joke that a well-stocked freezer is like having money in the bank. After all, that’s why I always keep mine fully stocked with ready-to-reheat freezer meals! Whether it’s keeping my freezer stocked with berries that I picked and froze while in season, pesto I made in the summer or a stack of blueberry pancakes and waffles that I froze during a lazy Sunday, one thing is for sure: having a well-stocked freezer is not only a great way to save money and but it’s also essential when maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
One item I always keep in the freezer is a bag of raw, peeled, deveined shrimp. A lean source of protein, shrimp is versatile, affordable, and always a big hit with my husband and kids.
Frequently asked questions:
What’s the best way to defrost frozen shrimp?
Let it thaw overnight in the fridge, or for faster thawing, take the shrimp out of its package, put it in a bowl of cold water, and let a trickle of cold water run into the bowl while excess water goes down the drain. The shrimp should be ready to cook in about 15 minutes.
How long does frozen shrimp last in the freezer?
Properly stored, it will maintain the best quality for about 3 to 6 months but will remain safe beyond that time. The freezer time shown is for best quality only – shrimp that has been kept constantly frozen at 0°F will keep safe indefinitely.
