Absolutely delicious! I added mushrooms and onions, and served on brown rice. It was divine!

This is fabulous! We have this a couple times a month. The lemon zest adds so much. Wouldn't change a thing. We serve it over orzo. MY husband tells our children (21 & 18) that this is your $25 entree. LOL!

wonderfully delicious! I was just going to trow a pizza in the oven for dinner when I realized I had frozen shrimp and a huge 4 pound bag of Costco fresh spinach. So I googled "shrimp spinach" and this recipe came up. I had everything I needed in the pantry or on the lemon tree so why not? It's awesome. Sometimes the recipes are a bit too bland but this one was perfect. I wouldn't change a thing. Served it over penne pasta and my husband cleaned his bowl with his finger.
