As I always say, cooking for one is awesome because you can use more expensive ingredients and it won’t cost you a fortune. Eating shrimp always makes me feel pampered — although my wallet doesn’t necessarily enjoy it as much. But when you’re on your own, you can feel free to indulge!

To round out the flavors in this meal, I added chicken sausage, mushrooms, and wild rice. I always keep cooked rice on hand throughout the week so I can throw together quick meals like this shrimp, sausage, and mushroom wild rice dinner.

New Call-to-action
