Seafood lovers rejoice! We've got a gallery of 40 amazing shrimp recipes, from fried shrimp to grilled shrimp and everything in between. Whether you're craving a simple saute, a saucy stew, a spicy curry, a salad, or a Southern standard, we've got recipes that cover the shrimp gamut.

We love shrimp because it's one of the more affordable seafoods available and it's so quick -- not to mention easy -- to prepare. The virtue of shrimp is that it pretty much works with every single cooking method. Grill, broil, saute, poach, steam or fry shrimp -- it tastes great every way. Nowadays you can buy shrimp that's already deveined and even cooked (or you can devein yourself), which helps cut down on recipe prep time immensely.
