Are you looking for an easy meal that tastes delicious and doesn’t require a lot of time in the kitchen? I’m going to hook you up with the perfect recipe.
Weekends have become so busy for our house lately and while I plan out my meals during the week, I don’t do so good on the weekends. I usually leave Saturday and Sunday blank on the menu so my husband and I can decide together, but we’ve been so busy lately that weekend meal planning has been neglected.
Most weekends we’re scrambling to figure out dinner last minute. On Saturday’s we are up early so we can hit the gym before breakfast. Then we’re back out the door to run errands. We pop back in the house for lunch and to change clothes, then out the door again to church. By the time we are heading home for dinner, we’re trying to decide what to eat. Most times we get take out or walk the aisles at the grocery store until we find something. That can be frustrating because, by that time, we’re starving and tired.
We needed to come up with some easy, last-minute meals solutions that could be made in 30-minutes or less. To keep the prep time low, we knew that would require a mix of fresh and frozen ingredients.
For the frozen ingredient, we used SeaPak® Jumbo Coconut Shrimp. SeaPak® has a variety of convenient seafood’s that are responsibly sourced so we didn’t feel guilty about using a semi-prepared food in this recipe.
This meal is flavorful, quick and perfect for busy nights.

To put a grown-up spin on this dish, pair it with a delicious Black Box wine. Black Box comes in eco-friendly packaging that’s recyclable, and they have a variety of wines from different regions to choose from.
I paired our Coconut Shrimp Tacos with, winner of 50 Gold Medals and 29 Wine Enthusiast Best Buys, premium Black Box wine. The 3-liter box has the equivalent of four 750 ml bottles of award-winning wine and is less expensive than buying four single bottles of premium wine. With its ergonomic packaging, the wine stays fresh for up to six weeks and the first glass is as fresh as the last.
If you don’t have 30 minutes to make these tacos, you can pair the SeaPak® Jumbo Coconut Shrimp with steamed rice and the orange marmalade dipping sauce that’s included in the box.
I love the convenience of SeaPak® seafood. Thier tasty, high-quality seafood allowed me to come up with an easy meal in minutes that I could relax and enjoy.
