5 Ideas for a Quick and Light Dinner

Skillet Shrimp

There's a certain amount of prep work involved with shrimp, so you might not consider it when you're looking for a quick dinner fix. But if you buy already-cleaned and peeled shrimp, this incredibly simple dish will make you think again. Lightly brown some garlic slices in olive oil, drop in a pound of shrimp, sprinkle with salt, pepper and whatever dried herbs and seasonings you like. Cook for about five minutes, just until the shrimp are pink. Serve over rice or pasta. That's it.
