Instructions

Heat Olive oil in a pan over medium heat-high

When the pan and oil are hot, add chopped dried chorizo.

Once chorizo browns, add frozen shrimp to the pan, with a pinch of salt and pepper, cover pan (cook for 5 minutes). Shrimp will naturally poach as it defrosts, and chorizo will act as seasoning.15-minute Frozen Shrimp and Chorizo with Spinach Recipe via @easyweeknightmeals #easyweeknightmeals #frozenshrimprecipe #easyrecipe15-minute Frozen Shrimp and Chorizo with Spinach Recipe via @easyweeknightmeals #easyweeknightmeals #frozenshrimprecipe #easyrecipe15-minute Frozen Shrimp and Chorizo with Spinach Recipe via @easyweeknightmeals #easyweeknightmeals #frozenshrimprecipe #easyrecipe

When shrimp turns mildly pink, add frozen spinach (1 cup) with a pinch of salt and pepper, then cover the pan until spinach thaws ( 3-5 minutes).

Add the juice of one (1) lemon, with 2 heaping tablespoons of butter.

Toss ingredients in the pan with lid off, and let some liquid reduce (5-minutes)

Serve with spicy Italian Bomba sauce (optional) or red pepper flakes.

Notes

I've added spinach to round out a meal but you can use other greens you prefer or, it can easily be left out.

It can be served over rice, pasta, or mashed potatoes. Or just buy good bread to dip into the sauce.

Excellent with fizzy white wine, like a Vinho Verde.
