Technically today is the official day to celebrate all things shrimp, though it doesn't seem like Americans need an "official day" - we eat about 1.7 billion pounds of the crustacean per year, making it the most popular seafood in the country! Quick-cooking and low in calories, shrimp is delicious in salads, on sandwiches, or sautéed and tossed with pasta. Check out some of our favorite recipes to celebrate tonight.
