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!

    This came out great, easy enough. Because shrimp are only sold whole, I made quickie shrimp stock (chicken stock cooked for 20 minutes with the heads and tails), which I think enhanced the flavor. I served it over brown rice. Next time, I will add the spinach earlier, it didn't cook down much in the time given in the recipe and I cooked it a bit longer before adding the shrimp.

    Made this tonight - super easy and very tasty. I used half and half instead of cream, doubled the spinach and served it with brown rice - will be making again soon!

    It was delicious. I added some parmesan cheese and it was scrumptious.

    I used half and half, but maybe if I had used whipping cream it would have been thicker? Ended up adding some flour to thicken up, but once I did, it was delicious! Served over spaghettini.

    It was wonderful! I used half and half to cut down on calories. And used baby spinach. Lots of it. Also I used a tablespoon of a Moroccan jarred spice blend. We like spicy food. We will definitely do again. Served it over orzo.

    This was so easy and absolutely delicious. I didn’t use any butter I used a tablespoon of olive oil to pan fry the shrimp and I used unsweetened coconut milk so I think this recipe was far lower in calorie and yet absolutely delicious, loved it, it’s going to be a regular! Thanks!

    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!
