Servings 4


  • 1 lb shrimps peeled, deveined, heads and tails removed
  • 2 tsp olive oil extra-virgin
  • Kosher salt
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • 3 tbsp butter
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes halved
  • 3 cups baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 cup basil thinly sliced
  • lemon wedges for serving, optional


  • Season shrimps with salt and pepper.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. When oil starts to shimmer, sear shrimp until golden, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat then set aside.
  • Reduce heat to medium. Melt butter then stir-fry garlic until fragrant, for about a minute. Add the cherry tomatoes. Season with salt and pepper. Cook until the tomatoes start to burst.
  • Add the spinach and cook until it starts to wilt.
  • Add the heavy cream, Parmesan, and basil. Let it simmer then reduce heat to low. Cook for about 3 minutes or until the sauce thickens and is slightly reduced.
  • Add back the shrimp and heat through. Garnish with more basil and squeeze lemon as desired.
