Shrimp: High Protein & Super-Fast Option for Everyday Meals

Updated: Jan 24


Seafood seems exotic and expensive so we forget about it as an option for everyday use. Shrimp are really high in protein (24g - ~50% recommended DV per 3.5 oz. of shrimp or 8 or 9 medium-sized shrimp), have no fat and no carbs (they do have cholesterol). Shrimp are not that expensive compared to other types of protein and for a lot of recipes, you can use frozen shrimp without much difference in taste.


They are also super-fast to cook. Medium shrimp take ~5 min. total to cook (~2 minutes per side). You can add them to meals of all different international cuisines and substitute them for other proteins in your regular meals easily.


Here is a gallery of different ways I cook with shrimp to give you ideas:


The first few are pizza, but there are other dishes too! :)

Slightly Teriyaki Eggy Ramen +/- Shrimp

I like to eat it with shrimp. You can eat it plain (still good!) or w/ other meat or veggies. Check out totikky tikky version from YouTube or the variation I came up with.
