These healthy freezer friendly shrimp recipes are low calorie, simple to make with real food and nourishing ingredients. All recipes are gluten free with several options for low carb and Paleo too!
Shrimp is a great protein option to add to your mealtime routine. I buy my shrimp from Sizzlefish (use code SKINNYFIT for a discount!) along with other fish. They deliver it to my door and I keep it stashed in the freezer for easy, no brainer meals.
My biggest tip when it comes to shrimp is allowing it to thaw fully before cooking. Don’t place shrimp in a bowl of water or run it under water to thaw it out quickly. It’s guaranteed to make it stiff and tough.
My next tip is to buy raw shrimp not cooked shrimp. Pre-cooked shrimp is great for shrimp cocktail and quick appetizers, but as tasty as raw shrimp. Sizzlefish only sends raw shrimp so, another reason why I buy from them!
