Italian Shrimp, Spinach Saute Recipe

Saturday, April 5, 2014

Here is a quick throw together meal for all my seafood lovers! Shrimp, tomato, garlic and wine... with fresh spinach! A healthier version to start your way to healthier eating if your a seafood lover. I love the ease of this recipe and you can serve this many ways, the healthier version is to serve over brown rice or then the heartier way is to serve over pasta, potatoes and it's great on top of fresh crusty Italian bread!

2 pounds large shrimp cleaned and deveined tails on

1 pound fresh plum tomatoes cleaned and put through the food processor leaving chunks

3 cloves fresh minced garlic

olive oil

1/2 cup white wine

springs of fresh parsley

fresh basil

1 bag of fresh spinach around 13 to 16 ounces

Optional additions: sliced peppers, black sliced olives, sliced onions can be added with the tomatoes.

Optional ways to serve this: Cooked Pasta boiled in salt water to package directions. Top a baked potato or serve on a bed of boiled rice instead of pasta. I love this on top of Italian crusty bread as a sandwich.

In a large fry pan, add 1/4 cup olive oil, garlic and spinach. Saute until spinach has wilted. Add the white wine and tomatoes. Cook for around 15 minutes.

In the meantime boil your favorite pasta and set aside.

Add the shrimp to the pan and cook until the shrimp turns pink, around 4 to 5 minutes. Add the fresh herbs and stir.

To serve, place over a bed of brown rice or the other suggestions listed above. You can garnish with fresh cracked black pepper and long shreds of grating cheese if you like.
