Healthy Mediterranean Shrimp

Mediterranean Shrimp Perfect For Any Occasion!

Hello friends!

Lately I’ve been seeking out seafood recipes to mix up our weekly dinners. I don’t know about you, but sometimes recipes start to taste the same. They don’t feel quite as inspired. This week’s recipe is a delicious treat that can be served as your main dish with some rice or pasta, or one that be used as an appetizer served alongside some crackers or even crostini. Honestly, I think this will work well either way!

So, if you’re looking for something new to spice up your weekly menu, or if you’re looking to make something new for a gathering–I urge you to keep reading this review.

This week’s recipe for Mediterranean Shrimp is by Well Plated. You can find the recipe right-> here!

Why Makes This Mediterranean-Inspired Dish?

This is a recipe that is perfect for any day of the week and any occasion. It’s quick to make, simple to put together, and so well-balanced with flavor. Truly, what more could you want? I was incredibly impressed with the blend of flavor. In general, you know what each of these ingredients tastes like. Artichoke hearts, kalamata olives, fire-roasted tomatoes, red onion–sure, yeah, we can picture what all of these taste like individually. But put it all together? It’s like illustrating a song coming together with each part.

That was truly one of the most delightful surprises for me!

If you’re looking to make something a bit different for dinner, then you should absolutely give this one a try.

Does it Have To Be Shrimp?

While I have tried this recipe as it is written, I think that this recipe can easily be made using chicken breast. However, I would advise against any red meat in this particular recipe. That would certainly change the flavor significantly. As long as you stay with a white meat or keep the shrimp–the essence of this recipe should be there.

If you can have shrimp and are simply not sure? I vote give it a try. This has a very pleasant Mediterranean flavor that surprised my tastebuds.

To make my prep even easier, I used the already peeled and deveined Argentinian shrimp from Trader Joes. This can be found in the freezer section and they are PERFECT for this.

Mediterranean Shrimp

Grey’s Grade: 5/5

If you’re looking for a quick recipe for dinner or an appetizer, then you’re certainly in luck. This recipe for Mediterranean-Inspired shrimp was so refreshing. Perhaps it was me really satisfying a craving, because oh man–I really really enjoyed this one. The layers of flavor formed in one pan truly make this a fantastic meal.

If you’re a fan of olives, then you’re really in luck. The use of kalamata olives and artichoke hearts in this recipe is some of my favorite. My husband isn’t a huge fan of olives, but did enjoy this dinner, too. I’d think it was because it wasn’t an overwhelming amount of olives. Plus, each forkful of the dish was full of the other flavors too. You’d get the full combination of all the ingredients in each bite! The acidity from the tomatoes, combined with the sweetness from sauce that formed from cooking? Oh man, I’m salivating at the thought again!

Can these be saved as leftovers? Even with shrimp? The recipe does provide some instructions on storage and serving for up to 3 days. I’d personally not let shrimp sit in the fridge for more than a day. I do have to agree with the author, however, that this tastes AMAZING served cold in a salad.

Overall, I think this recipe was so incredibly refreshing for my weekly menu. If you like seafood and Mediterranean-inspired flavors, then I sure do hope that you give this recipe a try!
