Thanks to SeaPak Shrimp and Seafood Co. for sponsoring this easy weekly dinner menu full of delicious and easy seafood recipes!

This week's menu of easy dinners is all about seafood recipes!

You like seafood, right? We sure do. Except scallops. Those aren’t for me because when I was a kid a friend told me they were eyeballs. This was when I had a distinctly eyeball-feeling scallop in my mouth. I was so traumatized that I haven’t really been able to eat scallops since! Otherwise, shrimp, fish, crab, and pretty much any other kind of seafood are always popular at our house.

Besides the versatility of seafood, I love how quick it can be prepared. Shrimp usually only needs to cook a few minutes, and fish doesn’t need much time either. When you are looking for fast weeknight dinners, a seafood recipe is almost always a good bet! Take a look at these seven easy dinners for some tasty ideas:

  1. Lightened Up Shrimp Scampi Alfredo – Would you believe this dinner only takes about 15 minutes to make? P.S. You can enter to win a year’s supply of SeaPak products in this post!Believe it or not, this delicious Shrimp Scampi Alfredo is ready in about 15 minutes and is lightened up too!
  2. Popcorn Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Bacon by Home Cooked Memories – Here’s a recipe from another SeaPak blogger that makes for a quick, delicious, and wholesome meal.Popcorn Shrimp Salad with Avocado and Bacon

I totally feel the same way about scallops! Love every other type of seafood except for those. Something to do with the texture I think.
