Garlic Shrimp

Good morning,

I had some fresh spinach in the house and decided to make it as a side dish that turned into the main course.  This is even more yummy than it looks.

If you want to try it, here's an estimate of what's in it.  I went through the fridge and got out what we had and this is the result:

4 strips of bacon, cut in pieces
1/2 medium onion

Gently fry the bacon in a large skillet.  Add the onion when the bacon is almost finished.  Continue frying until onions are clear.

about 6 large fresh mushrooms, diced
about 6 cups fresh spinach
2 cloves garlic crushed
1 cup white wine

cover and simmer until spinach wilts  (about four minutes)

add defrosted shrimp (be sure to take the tails off first).  For this I used a large bag of large size pre-cooked cocktail shrimp.  Cover and heat just until shrimp is hot in the dish.

This would be good served over rice, but we didn't want to wait to make rice.

This looks delicious, Lois, and has all favorites of ours, thanks for the recipe! Enjoyed the recent photos of Elsa, who is growing fast as children and animals seem to do🙂 Thanks for your recent comment on our blog post. We are enjoying our southern road trip and always have a great time seeing more of the USA.
