I was fixing a quick shrimp dish for Charles’ lunch tomorrow and I thought some bacon and spinach would be great. So I got to cooking; I needed some bacon fried for breakfast anyway so that would be easy and something different. I get done, I eat my share of it, and I pack up the rest only to remember a few days ago I posted scallops with spinach and bacon …. so it really wasn’t so creative and exciting after all! It’s been a long weekend so I am going with this for my post anyway. It is a bit different from the scallops dish and who doesn’t enjoy another fast shrimp recipe.
Quick and Easy Shrimp with Spinach
- 12 o.z. shrimp; peeled
- 2 Tbs bacon grease or butter
- 1/4 tsp cayenne
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- salt and pepper to taste
- 3 – 4 o.z. spinach
- crumbled bacon if desired
Heat bacon fat or butter in large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp and season with cayenne, garlic, salt and pepper.
Cook for about 2 minutes and flip shrimp over.
Cook 1 – 2 minutes longer; add spinach on top; cover and steam for about 2 minutes. Toss together and sprinkle with crumbled bacon.
