Shrimp Parmesan Spinach Salad

I have been eating super healthy lately. Other than last Saturday when I was in the U.P. and had 4 cookies in one day and 3 handfuls of Doritos. (If you are reading this, not from Michigan and wondering what U.P. means, it means the Upper Peninsula of Michigan) But other than that I have been doing great!… Except I do eat more M&M’s because of this┬ánew addition in our entry way. But seriously other than that I have been eating well. I swear. :)

One thing I have been eating a ton of is Spinach! If it worked for Popeye it might work form me.

So I came up with the recipe a couple weeks ago and have been eating it a few times a week because it is delish. The sauce is from Buffalo Wild Wings and usually isn’t something you mix with shrimp or spinach but I tried it out and it was awesome. I basically just gave away the whole recipe, which is hard not to do when their are only 3 ingredients.



Here is what you will need:

  • 2 cups of fresh spinach.
  • 10 to 15 shrimp
  • 1 tablespoon of Parmesan Garlic Buffalo Wild Wings Sauce

Thing number one:

Put the shrimp in a bowl of hot water for about 3 to 4 minutes to let them defrost.

Thing number two:

While the shrimp is defrosting, start cooking the spinach in a frying pan on low. I like to chop my spinach up a bit before doing this, you can do whatever you would like with the spinach, I won’t tell anyone.

Oh and as you can tell from the picture, I like to take off the stems… I don’t like the texture too much.

Thing number three:

Once the spinach gets cooked down and the shrimp is defrosted, toss in the shrimp. (I hope this goes without saying but take off their tails first. Nobody wants a shrimp tail in their salad. At least nobody that I know, or want to know.)

Thing number four:

Add a tablespoon of the sauce. A little goes a long ways, so you may not even want a full tablespoon. I also try not too use to much because the sauce has a bit more sodium than I would like.

Thing number five:

Eat it!

Of course you can always add some of your own mixings in their. Maybe some cooked peppers and onions would be good, or some mushrooms. Happy Friday!
