I really like to make healthy, quick and easy2make dishes dishes. This recipe is one of my favorite dishes that I make often for myself and for friends and family!
Shrimp with Spinach & Tomatoes
160 g or 10 - 12 large cooked shrimp, deveined and peeled
2 tblsp olive oil
A few handfuls of baby spinach, to taste
1 can (400 g) diced tomatoes with onions
In a large skillet, warm olive oil and then add the spinach. Stir the diced tomatoes with onions (with liquid) into spinach and cook until spinach starts to wilt.
Now add the shrimp and cook for another minute or two until shrimp are warmed through.
Season to taste with salt and coarse black pepper and serve immediately with bread of choice or cooked rice.
Yield: 2 main course servings
If you don’t feel like pre-cooking your shrimp, use shelled and deveined shrimp (if frozen, thaw and bring to room temperature) but remember to adjust the cooking time. Note that your spinach will be a bit more cooked which some might like even more! If you like your spinach less cooked, add the tomatoes with onions to oil, then shrimp and last but not least, the spinach.
If you like rice, you could also add some cooked rice to this dish which, of course, would make it more filling.
For a vegetarian version, replace shrimp with 1 can of drained & rinsed cannellini beans.
If you like a bit of garlic, add a small clove to the oil and remove before serving. For a stronger garlic taste, chop the garlic glove or mince it and add to oil at the beginning.
