Easy Weeknight Shrimp

Shrimp is a very easy and versatile protein choice especially during the week. It cooks quickly and can adapt too many dishes and most importantly, it’s healthy!  The recipe below is just that a quick, simple weeknight shrimp dish. (Adjust the measurements depending on how many you’re feeding).


  • ½ lb medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 Tsp Garlic powder
  • 1 Tbsp Garlic infused olive oil
  • 1 Tsp Old Bay
  • 1 Tsp Onion and herb seasoning (Ms. Dash)
  • 1 Tsp Red pepper flakes (optional)
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)



Drizzle the shrimp with the olive oil and add the remaining ingredients. Allow to marinate for 10-15 minutes, longer if you’d like. Heat a small skillet to low-medium heat and add your shrimp. The shrimp will cook in about 5-7 minutes (a bit longer if you’re using larger shrimp). Enjoy atop white rice (or brown for a healthier option) and a yummy side salad.
