Traeger Seafood Alfredo FAQ

What To Make With Shrimp Alfredo

Sometimes I struggle with finding the perfect sides to pair with a dish.

If you are like me and ever struggled to find the perfect pairing, let me help. When I make shrimp alfredo, sometimes I pair it with a nice garlic bread or even crusty bread. These are both great for soaking up any of the sauce that gets left on the plate.

You can also pair this with a crisp Caesar salad. It will give you an element of crunch to pair with your tender pasta and seafood. Maybe also reach for a veggie like broccoli or even asparagus. You might find you like mixing the vegetable in with the sauce or pairing with the seafood. I know I do!

Is Shrimp Alfredo Healthy?

For this, I say yes and no. While the shrimp and scallops are a great source of protein and low in fat, you run into the cream that is used for the sauce and cheese which can be good for bone health and heart health, but it does offer some cholesterol and saturated fat in the dish that you have to be aware of. For more savory dishes like my seafood alfredo pasta, I always say enjoy in moderation.
