10 Best Leftover Shrimp Recipes – Insanely Good
Shrimp is another food that is usually eaten in my house, so I haven’t experimented with leftover shrimp recipes as much as I would like.
However, occasionally, when I make a big meal with lots of side dishes, we have a few pieces left over until the next day. (Again, this is a rarity. My family loves shrimp.)
The few times I’ve prepared these recipes for leftovers, I’ve really enjoyed them
Honestly, it makes me a little sad that we don’t have leftover shrimp more often.
A couple of them are so good, I’ve even made extra shrimp just so I can enjoy them. Try them yourself next time you have leftovers on hand!
1. Shrimp firecrackers
and cream cheese
These firecrackers are a mix between fried wontons and rangoons, and you can make them with egg roll wrappers. It’s all the best Chinese food in one dish!
have deliciously crispy and fried shells, and their interior is filled with soft cream cheese, tasty shrimp, and enough spices to give them a real twist
They taste best when served with sweet and sour dipping sauce
Shrimp salad sandwich
These tasty treats are shrimp’s answer to, “What’s even better than chicken salad on a sandwich?” And it’s a very delicious answer!
All you’ll need to make them are leftover shrimp, mayonnaise, dried dill, parsley, onion flakes, diced cucumbers and black pepper.
You will mix everything in a large bowl, Then you will stick it in the fridge for an hour.
You will not have to turn on any appliances. Once the mixture has cooled, stack it in a croissant and you’re done.
3. Shrimp Norway
lobsters Requiring less than 10 ingredients and only 15 minutes to prepare, shrimp lobsters
are a delicious dish that will allow you to use your leftover shrimp.
The pasta is warm, tender and perfectly seasoned, and the shrimp add that unbeatable seafood flavor we all love so much
It is a quick dish and worthy of a restaurant that should feed the whole family
4. Shrimp Dip
This recipe is one I make frequently, even if I have to open a fresh can of baby shrimp to make
It’s too good to wait and hope that my family won’t eat all the shrimp for dinner
It requires few ingredients and no cooking, which is another reason why I love it so much. Some days, I just need a break from standing on a stove.
With this recipe, the most I have to do is open containers and beat some ingredients
Then I put it in the fridge to let it cool and grab a delicious snack for family movie night or Sunday’s big game
. 5. Shrimp pasta salad I love
I frequently make several different variations, especially in the hot summer months
However, I had never considered adding shrimp to this recipe
All you will need for pasta salad are shrimp, noodles with macaroni, onions, celery and red pepper
Homemade dressing requires a few more ingredients, but trust me, you’ll want to make it from scratch. It’s amazing.
It is a bit sweet with a spicy taste that perfectly complements the shrimp. You can’t find something like that in the store; It has to be freshly made.
6. Shrimp salad with lime and avocado
This is another excellent uncooked recipe that is perfect for the summer months
because it is fresh, light and refreshing.
It’s also beautiful with lots of color, which I love
It’s also healthy, full of good fats and protein and low in carbs.
If you’re looking for a summer salad with lots of flavors and half carbs, try it yourself.
7. Prawn sauce Whether
cold, sauces are always great appetizers or party meals
This sticky cheese sauce is perfect with crackers, mini toast, or even thick tortilla chips
It has two different cheeses (three if you count cream cheese), milk and sour cream, so it is supremely soft and rich.
The shrimp is buttery, and the onions and garlic give it a wonderfully herbal touch.
Best of all, at just two carbs per serving, it’s the perfect sauce for those on keto or low-carb diets, especially if served with vegetables or low-carb chips.
8. Shrimp Soup
This creamy and delicious dish tastes especially good on a cold night. The taste is tasty but mild, making it an easily digestible dish for those with sensitive stomachs.
If you like your soup with a little more flavor, try adding a pinch of garlic, a handful of leeks or scallions, or even a few red pepper flakes to make it bolder.
It is better if eaten fresh. Due to potatoes, it does not freeze well.
9. Tomato Soup Shrimp sauce / Shrimp jelly salad I
wasn’t convinced by this recipe when I first found it, but a friend of mine prepared it for one of our meetings, and after trying it once, I was hooked
. It’s precisely what it claims to be: a
shrimp jelly salad
made with tomato soup. It also has mayonnaise, cream cheese, celery and green onions.
It’s surprisingly tasty, and has the most wonderful creamy, smooth texture
It requires very little cooking, mostly stirring, mixing and refrigerating, but you’ll need a gelatin mold to make it
10. Shrimp Stuffed Avocados
This is another one of my favorite ways to use leftover shrimp
All you’ll do is mix the shrimp, cucumbers, salt, pepper, lemon juice, cilantro, hot sauce, and onions in a bowl
Then you’ll halve and hollow out your avocados and fill them with the delicious protein-packed mixture.
If you’re a fan of hot and spicy foods, you may want to double down on hot sauce.
If you prefer soft things, you can skip them altogether. Still, if you can handle at least a little heat, I recommend putting in at least one script.
It seems to change the flavor if you don’t add anything at all.
