This dish is beautiful, with pops of green and red, and absolutely creamy and rich. The garlic and sundried tomatoes flavor are the most noticeable, and the pasta provides a wonderful base to wrap everything up in. The tender shrimp are wonderfully buttery and garlicky and perfect in this easy and yet impressive dish!
Creamy Garlic Butter Tuscan Shrimp
2 TBS salted butter
1 heaping TBS minced garlic (jarred)
1 pound shrimp, cleaned and tails off
1 small yellow onion, diced
1/2 cup white wine
5 oz jarred sun dried tomato strips in oil, drained (reserve 1 teaspoon of the jarred oil for cooking)
1 3/4 cups half and half
Salt and pepper, to taste
3 cups fresh baby spinach leaves, washed
2/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese (more to serve)
2 teaspoons Italian herbs
1 teaspoon cornstarch (optional)
- If you are serving this dish over pasta, get the water on to boil, and boil the pasta per package directions while you prepare the shrimp and sauce.
- Melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet and sauté the onion until tender, about 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic for a minute, until fragrant. Add in the shrimp and sauté just until they are pink.
- Add in the wine and let it simmer for a minute, then add in the sundried tomatoes and teaspoon of oil.
- Stir in the half and half (or heavy whipping cream if you prefer). Bring to a low simmer and stir in the spinach and allow it to wilt.
- Season the sauce with salt and pepper, to taste. Add the Italian seasoning. Stir in the grated parmesan. Allow to simmer for a minute. Sauce will most likely be fairly thin. If you would like to thicken the sauce, whisk the 1 teaspoon of cornstarch with about 2-3 teaspoons of water together until smooth in a small bowl. Whisk the cornstarch mixture into the sauce and bring to a low simmer until thickened and creamy.
- Taste, and adjust seasonings as desired before serving over pasta, rice, mashed potatoes, or by itself if you prefer!
- Sprinkle with additional parmesan and / or fresh chopped parsley to serve if desired.

This looks very addictive and tempting with shrimp and tuscanReplyDelete
I must admit I too am guilty of using more garlic than the recipe calls for, cannot have enough of it. Though I don't eat non veg food, asked hubby how shrimp with garlic butter would taste and he reckons out of this world!ReplyDelete
