50 delicious shrimp recipes, from soup to spring rolls

For those keeping an eye on their caloric intake, shrimp is a pretty perfect food. A medium-size shrimp is only about 7 calories and packs quite a punch nutrient-wise. Shrimp are high in protein, selenium, vitamin B12, phosphorus, choline, copper, and iodine– all things our bodies need to stay healthy and fight disease. 

If you are able to eat the shellfish (shrimp is one of the most common allergens), you should. Often. But that doesn’t mean you have to douse it in cocktail sauce or toss it in alfredo pasta every night. There are plenty of creative, delicious ways to cook shrimp and add it to your meals. 

Stacker compiled a list of the best of these ways, creating a list of Shrimp recipes from Allrecipes that is sure to delight your tastebuds
