After posting about my marathon meal preparation I got a request for the Shrimp Florentine recipe.
So here you go Susan,
The original recipe came from this Better Homes & Garden cookbook.
However I made a few adjustments.
1 lb. frozen chopped spinach
2 Tablespoons water
1/4 cup chopped onion
2 Tablespoons butter
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1 lb. cooked shrimp
4 Tablespoons butter
3 Tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2/3 cup chicken broth
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 Tablespoon lemon juice
1/3 cup sliced almonds-toasted
2 Tablespoons grated parmesan cheese
meanwhile cook the spinach according to package directions. Cool, squeeze out excess water.
add spinach, salt and nutmeg to sautéed onions.
here’s the original recipe:I paid $5.99 for the shrimp and a dollar something for the spinach. everything else I have on hand as staples. So I estimate this is about $2/serving. Not the MOST frugal but certainly good for a shrimp meal.
Try it and let me know what you think.
