One-Pot Shrimp

by Maria on August 11, 2009


If you’re like me, shrimp is one of your go-to weeknight meals. I love to make a one-pot shrimp, which is basically shrimp and whatever else I feel like throwing into a big skillet. 


Ingredients range from aromatics like onions and garlic, veggies such as greens, broccoli, zucchini, asparagus, tomatoes, plus extras such as brown rice, bulgur, white beans, prosciutto, sun dried tomatoes, white wine and all manner of fresh herbs and spices.

First, start with a glug of olive oil, thinly sliced onion and chopped garlic. Cook until soft. I like to season here with salt, pepper and often, a heap of Old Bay seasoning. Add chopped veggies and saute for a few minutes, then the pre-cooked cooked starch, if using (we didn’t in the photo above). 

Throw in any extras like rinsed, drained white beans, prosciutto or the sundrieds, then toss in the shrimp. They’ll cook quickly. Next, add a generous pour of white wine or fish/vegetable stock, your fresh herbs and season to taste. Let it all mingle for a moment or two and enjoy with a glass of white wine. No need for side dishes with this one, it’s all here.

Yep, this is my go-to whenever I need something delish, yet quick. I've been experimenting with Quinoa lately. It's great with the one-pot shrimp favorite. :)
