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.

One word, WOW! Quick, easy and versatile. I've used spinach, kale and chard. it's great each time. Lemon is best but lime works as well. Served on rice or pasta it just depends on your preference (or pantry). I've shared this with friends and they all love it,

I used 1.5 lbs of shrimp and served this dish over whole wheat orzo (1 precooked cup). It should also work well over spaghetti or linguine. Delicious. The lemon zest really brightens this dish. It is great to find a quick, simple recipe that is so tasty.

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!

I sauteed some onions, colored peppers in some garlic prior to adding the shrimp (and various other seafoods I had - some octopus and scallops). When I added the spinach, I also threw in some cut up grape tomatoes. DELISH! The light lemon sauce made it so yummy! I added red pepper flakes at the end and a smidge of asiago cheese! Served over whole wheat linguine. YUM!

Delicious and simple!! My modifications: I used approx. 1 1/2 tbsp of lemon juice in place of the zest, and added some Sesame Seeds and Savory. Tasted great and only took about few minutes to cook.

Wow! Really good! Like below, didn't know what I was going to make for dinner tonight so I Googled "shrimp and spinach" and it came up on the top of the list. Sounded great, had 5 stars and I had everything to make it. I served it tossed with thin spaghetti and it turned out awesome! Will definitely keep this one as a go-to for a quick week-night meal. Would also make this for guests.

My husband called this a "great use of shrimp." I used large frozen shrimp and a large bag of frozen spinach. I sauteed some sliced portobella mushrooms with the shrimp. Added a little farfella pasta at the end. Delicious and great for the diet.

Delicious ... easy to make. I cut it to 5 shrimp / less of the other ingredients too ... served over white rice (mea culpa! ... I had no brown rice in the cupboard) w/ dry fried fresh brown mushrooms as a side! More than enough for me. Can't believe the few calories for such a delicious dish! Woohoo!
