Spicy red pepper shrimp skillet is a quick and easy, one-pan dinner that cooks up in under 15 minutes. It is made with just 5 simple ingredients: shrimp, tomatoes, garlic, balsamic vinegar, and red pepper!
Lately, I have come to accept that no matter what I do, my life is going to be busy. Between television appearances, cooking demos, swim meets and school functions, I have had little to no time to cook. Actually, it is a bit of a miracle that my family gets fed well at all. 😉
That is just one reason to love this easy recipe for spicy red pepper shrimp.
Seriously, how much easier could making dinner be than 5 ingredients and a cooking time of less than 15 minutes? Not only is it a quick and easy dinner to make, it’s healthy, too! Eating seafood twice a week is good for your heart and overall body health.
More great reasons to eat seafood:
- There are hundreds of delicious seafood recipes that can be prepared in less than 15 minutes.
- Canned and frozen seafood are inexpensive options for eating healthy on the go, and they substitute easily into meals for your family.
- If you don’t know what fresh seafood to choose, ask the seafood provider at the grocery store. They know what’s fresh and in season – and how to cook it.
- Seafood is easy to prepare in healthy ways, too. It can be baked, broiled, steamed, poached, and grilled.
- If you think you don’t have enough time to prepare seafood, think about this: On average, frozen seafood thaws in about 5-10 minutes. You can even cook it while it’s still frozen!
- I stock my pantry and freezer with canned and frozen options, because it’s inexpensive, easy, and always there when I want it.
