Life in the fast lane has become the norm for many families, and juggling work, school, and extracurricular activities can leave little time for elaborate meal preparation. In the midst of this whirlwind, easy weeknight meals are a must.
Well, if you have 10-15 minutes, which is all I have sometimes….Then I have three easy dinner ideas for you. Each one is kid-approved and costs less than $15 to make. That’s a win-win!
I used frozen, tail-off soy ginger shrimp by Prime Shrimp in each one of these 15 minute dinners.
Inspired by Asian cuisines, Prime Shrimp Soy Ginger contains 8 ounces of shrimp paired with 3 ounces of butter-based sauce. The rich compound butter combines shallots, soy sauce, fresh ginger, and minced garlic to create a depth of flavor. All those flavors work perfectly on all my easy 15 minute dinner ideas: Soy Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry, Soy Ginger Shrimp with Rice Noodles and Shrimp Lettuce Wraps.
How to make Soy Ginger Shrimp Lettuce Wraps
- Cook shrimp according to simple instructions using cook-in-bag from frozen format.
- Add cooked shrimp to lettuce leaves. Top with carrots, sauces (soy, wasabi) and pepper rings if desired.
How to make easy Shrimp Stir-Fry
- Cook Soy Ginger Prime Shrimp according to simple instructions using cook-in-bag from frozen format.
- Cook stir-fry vegetables as desired. I bought the steam-in-the-bag variety, it was ready in 4 minutes!
- Top your cooked veggies with the cooked shrimp.
How to make flavorful Shrimp Pad Thai
- Cook shrimp according to simple instructions on the Prime Shrimp package using cook-in-bag from frozen format.
- While the shrimp cooks, cook the pad thai noodles as instructed on the package. They will take 4-5 minutes.
- Once the shrimp and noodles are ready, combine and toss well. Add in veggies if desired.
