Pan Seared Shrimp With Wilted Spinach


4-5 slices of bacon
8-10 large shrimp, peeled, deveined
garlic powder
black pepper
lemon juice
baby spinach
2 cloves garlic, minced


Clean and dry the shrimp thoroughly using paper towels. Season with the salt, pepper, garlic powder and paprika and toss well.
Chop bacon and put it in a large skillet. Cook over medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon bits and set aside on a paper towel.
I used the bacon fat instead of the vegetable oil to fry the shrimp. Everything is better with bacon fat.
Sear shrimps about 3 minutes per side or until pink. Remove shrimp and set aside. Drizzle with lemon juice.
Add minced garlic to the remaining fat or oil and saute it for about 30 seconds on medium heat.
Fill the skillet with spinach and turn leaves with a tong until they wilt. Season with salt and pepper.
Serve spinach with seared shrimp and bacon bits.

  1. Hi there!

    My name is Steve Walters and I recently started blogging at http://www.eatingbangkok.com, which is currently being updated with recipes, but in the next few months will be my vehicle for covering the food and restaurant scene in Bangkok Thailand.

    I am now in the process of meeting as many food bloggers as I can and I found your site http://recipewithpictures.blogspot.com recently and was pretty impressed. I've added your site to my Foodie Blogs list here: http://www.eatingbangkok.com/foodie-blogs/ and would also like to add you to my blogroll.

    If you could add my site to your blogroll and write back to let me know it has been added (foodie [at] eatingbangkok.com) I will add you to mine as well and the exchange would be greatly appreciated!

    As you might imagine I am very excited to get moved to Bangkok and get started on covering the food scene there as I feel it is an area that isn't well covered by English speaking bloggers. I plan on adding loads of great reviews, pictures and even video and will be holding contests as well. It should be fun, entertaining and informative for everyone that visits.

    Thank you so much in advance for adding me to your blogroll and I look forward to reading your posts (I've subscribed!) and maybe even featuring some of your own posts as I do plan on a weekly roundup of Thai themed recipes and posts from other food bloggers.

    Warm regards,

    P.S. If you are on Twitter I would love to have you as a follower and I follow back:
