Spicy braised spinach and shrimp

It doesn’t get much easier than this, y’all. Here’s what you need:

✔️ 1 bag of baby spinach. (Enough to fill a large mixing bowl. It shrinks down by a third).

✔️ 1 lb of shrimp. I get the deveined and peeled once because heck, it’s easier.

✔️ 3 pieces of bacon: cube it and render off the fat. Drain on a paper towel and dispose of the grease in the pan. Don’t wipe out the pan, though! Save that yummy goodness.

✔️ half of a white onion-diced finely

✔️ 2 cloves of garlic-minced

✔️ red pepper flakes, salt and pepper to taste.

✔️ teaspoon of coconut oil

Once you’ve rendered the bacon, set it aside. In the pan you cooked the bacon add the coconut oil and sauté the onions, garlic and red pepper flakes. Once soft, add in the shrimp and cook for about two minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Add in the spinach, and gently fold in to the pan. It will shrink down pretty quickly. I like mine with a bite so I only cook it until slightly wilted.

This whole meal took a total of 10-15 minutes and was a big hit!!

What’s on your plate tonight?

Cheers!
