13 Delicious Shrimp Recipes You’ll Want to Make All Summer Long


Summertime cooking is all about fresh and flavorful food that isn’t too difficult to make. We love shrimp in the summertime — it cooks up in just a matter of minutes and pairs perfectly with a number of other ingredients — so we decided to make it the star of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).

We asked The Daily Meal Culinary Content Network members to share their best summertime shrimp recipes, and the results were overwhelming (in a good way). We received almost 40 submissions, and every single one made us hungry! Here are some of this week’s highlights.

Vietnamese BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl
Looking for a healthy, easy-to-make shrimp dish that’s sure to impress even the toughest critic? This noodle bowl from Min at MJ and Hungryman is the solution. Loaded with fresh, colorful vegetables and lots of smoky grilled shrimp, we’d have this for dinner any night of the week!

Crispy Chipotle Shrimp and Corn
Nothing says summer like fresh, sweet corn on the cob. Abbe (of This is How I Cook) dresses it up by adding smoky chipotle-spiced shrimp and a crunchy, golden panko breadcrumb topping for a dish that has us wishing it was summer all year long.

Margarita Shrimp Taco Tarts
We have two words for you: puff pastry. We love how Cheyanne (of No Spoon Necessary) took a classic technique and made it easy (and extra delicious) when she used puff pastry to make the perfect shell for her margarita shrimp. The pastry bakes up buttery, flaky, and golden brown, making it the best taco shell we can think of — and making Cheyanne this week’s winner!

Getting hungry? Don’t worry; there are more easy-to-make shrimp recipes. Keep reading for 13 shrimp recipes that you’ll want to make all summer long.

Spicy Shrimp and Kale with Creamy Rutabaga


It looks like shrimp and grits (and we promise you it’s just as delicious as shrimp and grits), but this creamy dish is made with rutabaga. Can’t find rutabaga during the summer? Try sweet or white potatoes instead. Whatever you choose, this shrimp dish is the one of the tastiest ways to eat your vegetables this summer. Click here for the recipe.


Perfectly portable and great for outdoor entertaining, shrimp tacos are a summertime staple — and these ones pack some major flavor, thanks to the chile-spiced shrimp, rich avocado creama, and crunchy jicama salsa. Click here for the recipe.


30 Best Shrimp Recipes Ready in Under 30 Minutes

You really can make simple seafood recipes during the busy work week! We picked 30 of our favorite quick and easy shrimp recipes, all ready in 30 minutes or less. To make the prep even easier, check the grocery store for raw shrimp that are already peeled and deveined. And if you can't find raw, pre-prepped shrimp, don't discount frozen shrimp. They'll cook up tastier than the market's already-cooked shrimp. If you are using frozen, however, don't miss Chef John's quick tricks for frozen shrimp, with smart tips for making frozen shrimp taste as good as fresh shrimp just plucked from the sea.


Spicy Shrimp Fra Diavolo

This light and spicy Italian dish is a classic, made with shrimp, pasta, and red pepper for kick. Add additional pepper if you want to up the heat and serve it with a green salad, some crusty bread, and a nice white wine to round out your meal.


Ali Slagle’s ginger-lime chicken, one of our most popular recipes, was one of the better things to come out of 2020. It’s so simple it’s almost silly: Stir together ⅓ cup mayonnaise, lime zest, ginger, salt and pepper, then toss with boneless chicken breasts or thighs. Let marinate for up to eight hours, then grill or pan-fry. Double up on the ginger and lime, if that’s your thing.

Grilled corn, but make it Baltimore-style. Emily Fleischaker’s recipe for grilled corn with Old Bay — a seasoning blend of celery salt, black pepper, crushed red-pepper flakes and paprika — is a revelation. As per the photo, don’t be stingy with the butter.

The best shrimp recipes, however, are the ones that you're going to make consistently.

30 Cool Cucumber Recipes You'll Want to Make All Summer Long

Cool, crisp, and crunchy, cucumbers are a light and delicious vegetable. And while they're available year-round, they peak during the warmer months, positioning them as ideal ingredients for refreshing cocktails, soups, salads, and even desserts. Ahead, we're showing you how to cool off this summer with some of our favorite cucumber recipes. They're more revitalizing than you'd imagine!

First, it's important to distinguish the different types of cucumbers available to you, as certain dishes require a specific variety. The common cucumber, or pole cucumber, is about eight inches long and often comes coated in wax&mdashbe sure to peel or scrub them prior to use&mdashwhile the English variety can be twice that size. English cucumbers are grown in greenhouses, which is why they're also called hothouse cucumbers they're virtually seedless and are usually sold wrapped in plastic to protect their thin skin. If you're looking to make your own pickles, we recommend Kirby cucumbers, which make snappy pickles but are also great when enjoyed fresh. Choose cucumbers that feel heavy for their size and have dark green skin free of the soft spots that indicate spoilage. Once you buy your cucumbers, you can refrigerate them, loosely wrapped in plastic, for up to five days.

Looking for something that will help you cool off after a long day by the pool? Make our Cucumber Cooler, which features fresh mint leaves, lime, club soda, and agave nectar for a sweet and light beverage. Pair the drink with an appetizer that's sure to delight&mdashour Cucumber-Feta Toasts are simply delicious. Toasted bread is adorned with feta and sliced cucumbers for an easy and quick recipe. Another starter that uses the vegetable is Cucumber Buttermilk Soup. It only takes 10 minutes of prep and is chilled to a cool temperature.

As for dinner, you can't go wrong with our Scallop, Orange, and Cucumber Kebabs, which serves as a bright, flavorful main. Even better, they only take 20 minutes to make. Juicy oranges and crunchy cucumbers taste wonderful when paired with briny scallops. Ahead, we're sharing more enticing recipes that will help you to cool off during those hot summer days.
