"For a delicious meal in minutes, try this colorful combination," suggests Audrey Thibodeau of Mesa, Arizona. "I put water on to boil while I do some of the prep work, then cook the pasta while I stir-fry the shrimp and veggies. This entree is terrific with garlic bread."
We live on the Gulf Coast, where fresh seafood is plentiful. I adapted several recipes to come up with this rich bisque. It's great as a first course or an entree, and it can be made with just shrimp or crabmeat. —Pat Edwards

A half hour is all you need to mix up this colorful crowd-pleaser. Offering plenty of shrimp, artichoke hearts, olives, peppers and a host of herbs, it's a tasty change-of-pace from pasta salads. "The recipe completes any buffet," notes Ginger Johnson of Farmington, Illinois.
I created this main-dish salad to satisfy our family's love of shrimp. It has lots of contrasting textures, including firm taco-seasoned shrimp, crispy tortilla strips and hearty black beans. A convenient bag of salad greens cuts down on prep time, so I can have this meal ready in half an hour.

"I created this supper standout one day with just the items in my refrigerator at the time. The recipe will leave your mouth watering for more! My family craves this dish any time of year because it’s so delicious and light. Enjoy!" writes Cyndi McLaughlin in Pinon Pines, California.
My guest can't believe I prepared this dish myself. This rich, creamy main dish features plenty of seafood flavors with a hint of garlic and lemon. Frozen peas and a jar of Alfredo sauce make it a simple supper that will be requested time and again.—Melissa Mosness, Loveland, Colorado
