Shrimp and salad – an amazing dinner idea

My son and my husband hate fish. But we actually need it in our diet so once a week I try to incorporate some type of sea food, because this is the only thing they eat from the actual sea: shrimp and calamari. Our favourite dinner is this easy shrimp stir fry with a quick salad. The recipe is really fast and easy, it involves a little bit of meal prep in the morning and at night, when you get home, you can have dinner ready in less than 10 minutes.

And this is definitely a high protein dinner idea!

Here is what you need for dinner with shrimp and salad:


  • 500 g frozen shrimp
  • one bag or a bowl
  • peppers
  • tomatoes
  • cucumbers
  • mozarella
  • onion
  • butter
  • bread
  • garlic powder
  • paprika
  • oregano
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • lemon
