We enjoy making shrimp dinners from time to time and some of our favorites have been our classic spaghetti with shrimp marinara, and our spaghetti with shrimp, olive oil, garlic and wine. But this one is a little different, containing some veggies in it to add more flavor, color and texture.
The shrimps in this recipe happen to come from the southern coast of Argentina, and they are wild caught and have a sweet-lobster like flavor and texture, making this shrimp dinner very flavorful.
I found them at Trader Joe’s and they come in one pound bags in the freezer section. These shrimps are already peeled and deveined for you, making the prep work fast and easy with this recipe!
HOW DO YOU MAKE THIS EASY SHRIMP DINNER?
This shrimp dinner is so simple yet it’s loaded with a lot of flavor. The recipe starts by allowing the shrimp to defrost, then rinsed well and drained before cooking. Next, fill a large pot with water, add 2 teaspoons of salt and turn on the heat to high.
Place a large skillet on stove-top. Begin by slicing the garlic and chopping the peppers. Then preheat the skillet and add olive oil and garlic and saute garlic for about 2 to 3 minutes.
Next, add the red peppers, shrimp, pepper flakes, some salt and pepper. Cook and stir for about 2 minutes.
The broth goes in next and simmers until the shrimp turns pink-ish opaque. And lastly, the butter, spinach and cheese are added to the shrimp sauce and simmered until the spinach wilts.
Now the shrimp sauce is ready for the final step! Cooking the linguine until it’s al-dente, and transferring it directly to the skillet.
The pasta is gently stirred with the shrimp sauce to flavor it and dinner is ready to serve!
Your family will LOVE this easy shrimp dinner!
