What To Serve With Baked Stuffed Shrimp – 14 Tasty Side Dishes

If you’re wondering what to serve with your baked stuffed shrimp, you’ve come to the right place.

In this article, I list 14 of the most popular side dishes for baked stuffed shrimp.

In a rush? Here’s the short answer.

The best dishes to serve with baked stuffed shrimp are Greek lemon rice pilaf, smashed potatoes, lemon pasta, or wilted spinach. You can also serve seared steak, panzanella salad, and broccoli casserole. To stick with a party theme, try crab rangoon or bacon-wrapped scallops.

Ready? Let’s jump right in.

Greek lemon rice pilaf

Turn your baked stuffed shrimp into a main meal with a generous serving of this Greek rice pilaf on the side. 

The dish has a citrusy, nutty flavor that will work well with your stuffed shrimp (lemon and seafood are a classic). 

And everything is cooked in one pot, so you have less washing up to worry about!

This Greek lemon rice pilaf is so much tastier than plain white rice.

Bacon-wrapped scallops

Bacon-wrapped scallops make for fantastic finger food at a classy dinner party, just like baked shrimp.  

The smokiness of the bacon is the perfect complement to the scallops’ mild sweetness. 

And these morsels are made even more delicious with a sweet, buttery glaze. 

And the best part? The bacon-wrapped scallops are baked so you don’t have to worry about frying the scallops.

Smashed potatoes 

Looking for a new way to include potatoes in your meal? 

Give these smashed potatoes a try. 

The potatoes get extra crispy on the outside while staying tender in the middle, and they’re full of flavor because the seasoning has so many cracks to fall into. 

Serve these smashed potatoes with your baked stuffed shrimp for a filling, but tasty meal.

Wilted spinach

Wilted spinach is about as simple as it gets.

But it’s got a lot going for it. It cookings at lightning speed, it’s packed full of nutrients, and it’s far from bland (but won’t overpower the shrimp).

You’ll only need 3 ingredients to make this dish – spinach, garlic, and olive oil.

Add some veggies to your meal with a helping of this classic Southern succotash.

The corn, okra, and tomatoes are cooked in bacon drippings, infusing them with a delicious savory flavor.

Want some heat? Add a dash of cayenne pepper. Extra smokiness? Throw in some smoked paprika. 

The flavor possibilities are endless with this succotash.

Southern-style coleslaw

Picture this: you’re sitting in your garden on a warm summer evening with a glass of cold beer next to you.

Then someone presents you with a plateful of stuffed shrimp alongside a creamy southern-style coleslaw. 

What more could you want?

I love the sweet pickle relish mixed into this southern coleslaw.

Pan-seared steak

Upgrade your meal into a fun surf-and-turf by serving steak alongside the stuffed shrimp.

And don’t be scared.

It’s surprisingly easy to get that perfect sear and juicy, pink middle in the comfort of your own kitchen.

Broccoli casserole

Jazz up your baked stuffed shrimp with a helping of this cheesy broccoli casserole on the side. 

This dish is a clever way to get picky eaters, especially kids, to fill their vegetable quota.

Even broccoli florets become irresistible once they’re drenched in gooey cheese sauce. 

Make this cheesy broccoli casserole for dinner – you won’t regret it.

Peach panzanella salad

This Panzanella salad screams summer – it’s perfect for a garden party or spring barbecue.

It’s got sweet peaches, salty prosciutto, crunchy bread, juicy tomatoes, creamy mozzarella, and tangy herbs. 

Pop a couple of baked shrimp on top and you have an impressive, light meal.

Enjoy this peach panzanella salad with a cold glass of your favorite wine.

Lemon pasta

You can’t go wrong with this simple lemon pasta. 

Also known as pasta al limone, this dish features a creamy, zesty sauce with a light salty flavor, courtesy of the parmesan cheese. 

It’s a light and refreshing pasta dish, and the flavor profile goes great with shrimp. 

It’ll only take 15 minutes to get this creamy lemon pasta on the dining table.

Mashed cauliflower

Mashed cauliflower is a low-carb version of mashed potatoes, but don’t worry it’s just as creamy! 

This recipe keeps the flavorings simple with some sour cream, salt, and pepper. But to add a little kick I sometimes add horseradish.

Pile a couple of baked shrimp onto this mash for a quick and easy weeknight dinner.

Asparagus risotto

Elevate your stuffed shrimp by serving them over this elegant asparagus risotto. 

The fresh, grassy flavors of the asparagus work wonderfully with seafood.

Risotto is easy to make – you just need an easy-to-follow recipe, good-quality ingredients, and patience.

But the wait is worth it to taste this creamy asparagus risotto

I also recommend this lemon parmesan risotto or this mushroom risotto.

Crab rangoons

If bacon-wrapped scallops don’t float your boat, here’s another party snack option.

This classic takeaway dish features crispy wonton wrappers filled with luscious crab and cream cheese mix. 

I like to use an air fryer to cook my crab rangoons because you get a perfect crunch without all the oil!

Psst… don’t forget to serve these crab rangoons with a sweet chili dipping sauce.

Clam chowder

Serve your baked stuffed shrimp with clam chowder for a tasty seafood bonanza. 

I like my chowder thick so that it coats the shrimp when you dip them into the flavorful broth – yum!

And with this recipe, you can have a warm, comforting bowl of clam chowder ready in 30 minutes.
