Shrimp is a go-to for superfast meals because they cook so quickly. And if you know me, you know that I am all about the easy 30-minute dinners around here. But a 15-minute dinner, including prep, well that is just a no-brainer. Some other inspo for quick 15-minute meals that you can throw together on a busy weeknight are: Cacio e Pepe Pasta, Spaghetti Carbonara, Neapolitan Margherita Skillet Pizza, and Seafood Fried Rice.
This meal is great for an easy weeknight meal, but it is also good enough to serve when you have guests over for dinner.
