My family loves seafood, so I make sure I serve it for a dinner regularly. And seafood dinners don’t have to be complicated! This Shrimp Scampi with Tomatoes meal is quick and easy, and sure to be a family favorite.
Using frozen shrimp makes meal preparation fast, so that I can have a tasty dinner on the table in 20 minutes. I combined SeaPak Shrimp & Seafood Co.‘s Shrimp Scampi with fresh grape tomatoes and green onions for a fresh coastal flavor.
A recipe like this is a nice change of pace, because it adds a little bit of a twist to an old favorite like Shrimp Scampi. The extra vegetables meld with the Scampi sauce and combine for a dish that is perfect served over pasta or rice. My family loved this meal, and my daughter was scraping the last few vegetables out of the pan to eat them, which rarely happens at meal time in my house.
To make the dish I prepared the SeaPak Shrimp Scampi according to package instructions, adding in a pint of sliced grape tomatoes. Then right before the meal was done cooking I stirred in a bunch of chopped green onions and some lemon juice. The whole dinner was ready in the time it took me to boil a pot of pasta to serve it over.
- 1 box SeaPak Shrimp Scampi
- 1 Tablespoon cooking oil
- 1 onion, chopped
- 1 pint grape tomatoes, halved
- 5 green onions, chopped

The USDA recommends that people at least two servings of seafood a week, although the average American consumes less than one serving each week. My family has seafood about once a week, but we are trying to increase that, and shrimp is a great choice, because it is a lean and healthy protein. Frozen shrimp is convenient and easy, and I know that SeaPak is highly regarded within the seafood industry for its adherence to quality standards and for its commitment to resource management and sustainability. Plus the whole family loves shrimp!
