1. To make the creamy garlic shrimp with spinach: Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. In a bowl, season shrimp with salt and pepper, to taste. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until shrimp is pink, about 2-3 minutes; then set aside in a shallow plate.

2. Add onion and garlic to the same skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add sundried tomato and continue cooking for one minute. Stir in chicken stock and hot sauce to deglaze. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in remaining 3 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until melted and smooth. Add spinach, then heavy whipping cream and give a quick stir to combine. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

3. Stir in shrimp back to the pan and gently toss to combine with the creamy garlic spinach sauce. Reheat for 1 minute, then serve the creamy garlic spinach shrimp immediately, garnished with chili pepper flakes and fresh chopped parsley, if desired. If you’re super hungry, serve over pasta, rice, cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles. Enjoy! 🍤

Shrimp recipe note:

  • You can use shrimp with tails on or off. 
  • Buy shrimp (or prawns) already deveined, shelled and cleaned, and you have yourself such an easy recipe. 
  • Frozen shrimp is okay for this recipe, but fresh wild-caught shrimp tend to have better flavor.
  • You can use reduced-fat cream, light cream, or half and half instead of heavy cream. A good low-calorie substitution is evaporated milk. If you choose to go dairy-free, coconut cream is also excellent!

    Very tasty! I added more onion and garlic and used coconut milk and served over quinoa. I also left out the sun dried tomatoes since I didn’t have any on hand but tripled the fresh baby spinach. It was delicious!

    This was yummy. I had old fresh spinach, about to expire heavy cream, and frozen garlic shrimp. Served on noodles.
