Whenever I think of a healthy meal, chicken and turkey burger are the first two proteins that come to mind. Somehow I always end up forgetting about shrimp, which is a shame because shrimp is delicious and low in fat and calories. It's a great way to add flavor and heartiness to a meal without ruining your diet.
Check out a few of these inventive shrimp recipes you can add to your meal rotation.
1. Barbecue shrimp (h/t Billy Keleman)
It's as simple as it sounds. Low in fat and high in protein, shrimp is a great option when you're trying to eat a healthier diet. You can serve the shrimp with rice or quinoa if you want something a little more filling.

2. Quick honey-garlic shrimp (h/t Sally's Baking Addiction)
If you love the flavor of sweet shrimp, but you want to keep your meal healthy, opt for honey instead of sugar. Add a little low-sodium soy sauce and some spices, then serve it with your favorite vegetable.
3. Shrimp and cauliflower bake (h/t Eating Well)
While shrimp and pasta go great together, a simple way to cut down on carbs and fat is to swap out the pasta or rice for cauliflower. Add some tomato, dill, and feta for a flavorful dish that is low cal.
4. Low-carb shrimp tacos
Spicy shrimp tacos are a fun and festive dish to serve for a casual party. You can make them low carb by making your own tortillas from coconut flour and eggs as in the recipe below. I make these tortillas all the time, filling them with chicken, beef, fish and other taco-seasoned stuffing. Get the full recipe here.
5. Garlic shrimp with quinoa (h/t Well Plated)
This easy garlic shrimp recipe will be a go-to for busy nights. The recipe comes together in one pan and is ready within 30 minutes! Plus you get your protein and whole grains.

Sometimes a simple recipe is better. You'll have this meal plated and ready to eat in under 30 minutes. This quick (and tasty) lunch option kills all of the "I don't have time" excuses.
