When making quick and simple dinners, it's important to look to the grocery store for help. While everyone is familiar with using rotisserie chicken, cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp should also become a staple of your weeknight pantry. If you think about it, shrimp is practically as versatile as chicken!
Serve it with pasta or sandwich with cheese in between two tortillas for quesadillas. Or as is the case with this recipe, toss with a lemony marinade and plate with veggies to make a Mediterranean-style salad. Sound delish? Try it tonight and get the recipe now.
