  3. When the spinach is wilted add the butter and twirl until creamy (don’t overcook butter).

What you should know

You can serve this as a stand along main course or even as an appetizer. I like it over saffron rice as well.

Re: Bluecoast Shrimp

This looks great. Do you serve this as an appetizer? If it’s a main, do you ever serve it alongside something else?

Re: Bluecoast Shrimp

The bluecoast shrimp recipe does make for a great appetizer. As a main dish I like it over jasmine rice although it is also delicious on its own.

Re: Bluecoast Shrimp

Here are some sides that I think would compliment this bluecoast shrimp recipe really well:

Blue moon rocket salad (not just for the name)
Beans Almondine
Saffron risotto (takes the rice addition to the next level)
Arabic Eggplant Salad (the sour smokey flavor offers a perfect compliment)
Israeli Couscous
Home Made French Fries (what don’t french fries compliment?)

This was delish! We had to use shrimp from Thailand. Thanks a lot BP!
