Marjie’s Tuscan Shrimp recipe


Having my family around is one of the blessings that I don’t take for granted.  Today as we were celebrating Father’s Day, I decided to treat my favorite men on this planet, my husband and 2 brothers, with a delicious meal. They are wonderful fathers and husbands.

One of the dishes that I served them was a creamy and rich Tuscan shrimp recipe.  It was so great to have all of them around and they enjoyed everything.

Marjie’s Tuscan Shrimp recipe.


2 lb. shrimp peeled, deveined, and tails removed

2 cups baby spinach

1 cup cherry tomatoes

1 cup parmesan cheese

1 tbs. extra virgin olive oil

2 tbs. butter

6 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup half and half

Mint thinly sliced

1 lemon juice

¼ cup white wine

1 tsp pepper flakes

Salt and black pepper to taste


In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat the oil, add the shrimp and season them with salt, pepper, and pepper flakes. Sear them until they become opaque. Remove the shrimp from skillet and set aside.


Reduce the heat to medium and add the butter. Add the garlic and cook until they are fragrant for about one minute. Add the cherry tomatoes and season with salt and pepper.

Cook the tomatoes until they are beginning to burst.  Add the spinach and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes.  Add the lemon juice and the wine.

Stir in the half and half, the Parmesan cheese and the mint.  Bring the mixture to a simmer. Reduce the heat to low and cook for another 3 minutes.

Return the shrimp to the skillet and stir to combine. Cook until shrimp is heated through.

I served this dish with some baked potatoes.


  1. My boys love shrimps and I don’t know what to do with them most of the type apart from putting it in a Vongole sauce. But this recipe looks amazing and I’m sure will be a big hit.

  2. Oh wow, this looks amazing! I love shrimp, and we have so much mint growing in the garden we need new recipes for it. And the rest of the ingredients look delicious together. I am definitely saving this one!

  3. We love shrimp and my family’s favorite way to cook it is Chili-Garlic Buttered shrimp, but your recipe is sure to be the next new favorite shrimp dish!

  4. This is looking really good! I literally just made shrimp tacos last night. Will definitely be grabbing more next time I go shopping – to try this out\!

  5. That looks so amazing! I will have to try this with my family. I can’t wait to try it! I bet it’s going to be delicious.

  6. You amaze me how simple you make this sound to make. Having said that, I feel like I have 2 left hands when it comes to cooking so even getting started is scary.
    Still, I do love and enjoy following your cooking tips, you make it sound easy and I`m sure it`s just as tasty. If I were not so far away, I`d be knocking at your door every time I thought dinner is being served lol.
    Brilliant, I love your posts.

  7. Roamy, I can guarantee you with two left hands, love, and determination, you can conquer the kitchen. I can wait to see you discovering the Chef dormant in you.
