Creamy Tuscan Shrimp

Happy Valentines Day! It is also Ash Wednesday which means no meat today so I decided on seafood for dinner. While searching Pinterest I came across this recipe for Creamy Tuscan Shrimp and it looked so good that I knew I had to give it a try! I served mine over Orzo but any pasta or rice would go great with this dish!

Creamy Tuscan Shrimp
Heavily Adapted from Cafe Delights

2 tablespoons salted butter
6 cloves garlic, finely diced
1 pound shrimp
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup sun dried tomatoes
1 3/4 cups half and half
3 cups baby spinach leaves, washed
2/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
2 teaspoons dried Italian herbs
1 tablespoon fresh parsley, chopped

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Melt the butter and add in the garlic and saute until fragrant (about one minute). Add in the shrimp and saute two minutes on each side, until just cooked through and pink. Transfer to a bowl; set aside.

Saute the onion in the butter remaining in the skillet. Add the sun dried tomatoes and cook for 1-2 minutes.

Reduce heat to low-medium heat, add the half and half and bring to a gentle simmer, while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

Add in the spinach leaves and allow to wilt in the sauce, and add in the parmesan cheese. Allow sauce to simmer for a further minute until cheese melts through the sauce. 

Add the shrimp back into the pan; sprinkle with the herbs and parsley, and stir through.

Serve over rice or pasta. Enjoy!
