Spicy Shrimp & Sauteed Spinach

Spicy Shrimp & Sauteed Spinach

Serving: 1


  • 12 Large Shrimp, uncooked, peeled and deveined
  • 50 g Baby Spinach (about 1/2 a cup)
  • 3 Garlic Cloves, diced
  • 15 g Jalapeno Peppers, diced (1/2 pepper)
  • 5 g Red Onion, shaved (about 3 very thin slices)
  • 1 tbsp Unsalted Butter
  • 1 tsp Crushed Red Pepper Flake
  • 1 tsp Fresh Cracked Pepper


  1. Heat 2 medium sized saute pans to medium heat.
  2. Once each are hot add 1/2 a tablespoon butter to each pan.
  3. Then add half the diced garlic and half the diced jalapeno in each pan, and stir around with the butter.
  4. In one pan add the shrimp, toss in the melted butter and allow to cook shrimp on one side for about 3 minutes.
  5. In the other pan at the spinach, toss with the melted butter. Add red pepper flake and continue to toss for about 3 minutes. The spinach will begin to wilt. Turn the heat down to low and allow to sit while you work with the shrimp.
  6. Stir the shrimp, garlic, and jalapenos around, Then flip each shrimp to the opposite side. Allow to cook for another 2-3 minutes, or until done.
  7. While waiting for the shrimp to finish, plate the sauteed spinach on a plate. Season with a dash of freshly cracked black pepper.
  8. Now that the shrimp should be fully cooked, toss them one last time to absorb the flavors from the pan.
  9. Top the spinach with the cooked shrimp and some of the chard jalapenos and garlic.
  10. Finish with a few cracks of black pepper, a dash of red pepper flake and garnish with the thinly shaved red onion.
