No Spoon Necessary
Summertime cooking is all about fresh and flavorful food that isn’t too difficult to make. Whether you’re cooking on the grill or in your kitchen, you’ll want a recipe that’s near-effortless without sacrificing flavor. We love shrimp in the summertime — it cooks up in just a matter of minutes and pairs perfectly with a number of other ingredients — so we decided to make it the star of this week’s SWAT (Sharing With A Theme).
We asked The Daily Meal Culinary Content Network members to share their best summertime shrimp recipes, and the results were overwhelming (in a good way). We received almost 40 submissions, and every single one made us hungry! Here are some of this week’s highlights.
Vietnamese BBQ Shrimp Noodle Bowl
Looking for a healthy, easy-to-make shrimp dish that’s sure to impress even the toughest critic? This noodle bowl from Min at MJ and Hungryman is the solution. Loaded with fresh, colorful vegetables and lots of smoky grilled shrimp, we’d have this for dinner any night of the week!
Crispy Chipotle Shrimp and Corn
Nothing says summer like fresh, sweet corn on the cob. Abbe (of This is How I Cook) dresses it up by adding smoky chipotle-spiced shrimp and a crunchy, golden panko breadcrumb topping for a dish that has us wishing it was summer all year long.
Margarita Shrimp Taco Tarts
We have two words for you: puff pastry. We love how Cheyanne (of No Spoon Necessary) took a classic technique and made it easy (and extra delicious) when she used puff pastry to make the perfect shell for her margarita shrimp. The pastry bakes up buttery, flaky, and golden brown, making it the best taco shell we can think of — and making Cheyanne this week’s winner!

Spicy Shrimp and Kale with Creamy Rutabaga
It looks like shrimp and grits (and we promise you it’s just as delicious as shrimp and grits), but this creamy dish is made with rutabaga. Can’t find rutabaga during the summer? Try sweet or white potatoes instead. Whatever you choose, this shrimp dish is the one of the tastiest ways to eat your vegetables this summer. Click here for the recipe.
Perfectly portable and great for outdoor entertaining, shrimp tacos are a summertime staple — and these ones pack some major flavor, thanks to the chile-spiced shrimp, rich avocado creama, and crunchy jicama salsa. Click here for the recipe.
