Quick Seafood Recipes: Shrimp Roll Recipe

Looking for new quick and easy recipes to get you through the Monday-through-Friday dinner hustle? Rest assured, you've come to the right place. Here at The Daily Meal, we are all about providing simple recipes that can be made in a snap during a busy day, but that don't lack on flavor or satisfaction.

This week, we've dedicated our quick cooking focus to seafood dishes. All of these dishes can be made in less than 15 minutes - and that includes preparation and cook time. Check out our seafood picks and see how simple (and fast) dinner can be.

To save more time, stop by the grocery store over the weekend and pick up the ingredients. When you get home, wash and chop the vegetables and store them in containers in the refrigerator. This way, most of the prep work is done beforehand. Fish is not only a healthy dinner option, but it also cooks relatively quickly compared to other proteins.

So skip the takeout and frozen dinner entrées when you're in a time crunch and try some of these seafood recipes that can be made in just minutes.

Ginger Lime Salmon Recipe

Salmon has become so prolific that it can often feel like a boring old staple. This recipe adds a lot of zing without too much work. It's great for a weekday meal or as the centerpiece of a dinner party.


2 1/2 tablespoons reduced-sodium tamari
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 1/2 teaspoons chile-garlic paste
Four 6-ounce swordfish steaks, about 1-inch thick
4 baby bok choy, halved lengthwise
2 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted


Prepare a grill for medium-high heat cooking. In a small bowl, whisk together the tamari, butter, lemon juice, and chile-garlic paste. Brush the swordfish and bok choy with some of the tamari mixture. Grill the swordfish and bok choy, turning and brushing occasionally with the remaining tamari mixture, until swordfish is almost opaque in the center (fish will continue cooking off grill) and bok choy is browned and softened, 7 to 8 minutes.
