    With some savvy shopping, you can make a delicious seafood meal for four for less than $5 per serving!

    Shrimp and Brie Linguine: $4 per servingPhoto: Howard L. PuckettPhoto: Howard L. Puckett
























    Budget Tips: Buy medium or small shrimp. They make take longer to peel and devein, but there's more quantity per pound. Another tip: halve large shrimp lengthwise (three can look skimpy on the plate, but six...). Warehouse clubs have fantastic prices on sun-dried tomatoes and cheese-two items than can bust your budget if you don't shop carefully.

    Ingredients
    8 oz. Brie cheese, rind removed, if desired
    1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes in oil, coarsely chopped
    2 tomatoes, seeded and chopped
    1/3 cup pitted Kalamata olives, chopped
    2 garlic cloves, minced
    1 cup chopped fresh basil
    1/2 tsp. freshly ground black pepper
    1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
    8 oz. uncooked linguine
    1 lb. peeled and deveined shrimp
    Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Preparation
    Cube Brie and combine with next 7 ingredients in a bowl. Cover and let stand about 1 hour.
