Straight from our families’ tables to yours, this appetizer offers a new twist on classic picnic fare. Cream cheese and mayonnaise give the eggs a rich, creamy texture that pairs perfectly with the sweetness of fresh-cooked, chopped shrimp. Despite the decadent upgrade provided by the shrimp, the deviled eggs are easy to make. They’re tasty for picnics and potlucks but also provide an elegant addition to parties, showers, and other special gatherings.
Nothing says summertime get-together like a seafood boil. You can use all kinds of fresh Gulf Coast seafood to create yours, but we’re partial to the combination of classic Cajun spices and our medium peeled and deveined tail-off shrimp . They’re cleaned and ready to cook to minimize prep work – instead of peeling shrimp, you can focus on your guests. Loaded with shrimp, corn, potatoes, sweet onions, and savory sausage, this recipe is sure to have everyone asking for seconds.
Salads are the perfect summertime meal. Loaded with fresh, crisp, seasonal produce, they offer an easy way to make healthy choices and get dinner on the table quickly. This Cobb salad replaces traditional chicken with succulent shrimp that take minutes to sauté. The shrimp’s flavor is enhanced with a fresh cilantro and lime dressing, plus the savory richness of bacon, eggs, and avocado. With plenty of protein, this salad is sure to satisfy even the most dedicated carnivores.
The bright flavors of citrus bring out the best in shrimp. This recipe is best prepared with jumbo shrimp , which are cooked quickly in a skillet until slightly charred. Crunchy cucumbers and fresh oranges bathed in honey, Sriracha, lime juice, and soy sauce offer a balance of savory and sweet, while sliced avocado on the side brings a touch of creamy richness. Best of all, this meal is easy to make in just about 30 minutes.
Firing up the grill isn’t just for burgers and brats. Grilling brings out the best in shrimp and allows you to prepare them without excessive added fats. If you keep a garden or frequent the farmers market, this recipe combines fresh seasonal produce with a garlicky marinade that is sure to please. Tuck the shrimp and other ingredients into a pita and you’re ready to enjoy. To round out your meal, throw a few foil packets of sliced potatoes on the grill and finish with grilled peaches or pineapple slices. Serving a crowd? It’s easy to double or quadruple the recipe to accommodate guests.
