Eating with Ellie - Shrimp with Spinach, Garlic and Smoked Paprika



Welcome to week one of our new group, Eating with Ellie.  Each Thursday, we will be cooking out of  Ellie Krieger's book, Weeknight Wonders.  I am not familiar with Ellie or her cooking, but I am up for an adventure, so I am joining in.  I am especially keen on the fact that Ellie states that the recipes in Weeknight Wonders can be made in 30 minutes or less - perfect.  I am usually time poor, so the quicker that a recipe can yield tasty results, the better.  

For our first week, Kayte chose Shrimp with Spinach, Garlic and Smoked Paprika.  This recipe can be found online here.

I really enjoyed this dish.  It is deceptively simple - some prawns mixed with a few spices and served on a bed of wilted spinach.  However, it tastes marvellous - no other sauces or condiments are required, which surprised me, as the juices from the spinach and the prawns meld with the spices to provide their own sauce.

To see what the other EwE cooks thought of this dish, visit the LYL section of the EwE website.

Sounds like a fun event, Gaye. With recipes like this one, how can you go wrong! Easy, fresh and oh so good!

I can see I'll be dropping by for a bite or two on Thursdays:)

Thanks for sharing, Gaye...

I am glad you like this dish also. We loved it.

I hadn't realized you had not cooked from Ellie before. We used to enjoy our weekly recipes and I am looking forward to making them again.

Welcome to Ellie Land.

LOL...so happy you are up for another adventure! It's always more fun cooking/baking with you along. :-) Your photo is really wonderful, shows it all off to its glory...we loved this and I made a few extra shrimp so I could have it the next day for lunch in a lettuce wrap, that was a great use for it also. So here we go...on our new adventure!

Since shrimp is one of my fave foods I knew I would love it. And Hubs did too. YAY! so definitely a repeat. And I was surprised as well that it had a little sauce with it. And welcome to cooking with Ellie's recipes. I think you will really like them.
