Creamy Tuscan Shrimp

INGREDIENTS

1 pound shrimp (I used 31-40 count size) thawed & peeled
2 tablespoons butter
1 teaspoon flour
4-5 cloves garlic minced
1 cup heavy/whipping cream
1/2 teaspoon lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon Italian seasoning
1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped or julienned
1-2 cups (packed) fresh baby spinach
Handful fresh basil cut into thin strips
Salt & pepper to taste

INSTRUCTIONS

Melt the butter over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the flour and cook for about a minute, stirring until smooth.
Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.
Stir in the cream, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer for 2 minutes. Reduce heat if it’s bubbling too much.
Add the shrimp and cook for around 5 minutes or until they’re cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened, taking care not to overcook them.
Add the spinach and basil and cook for another 2 minutes. Season with salt & pepper as needed. Serve immediately. I like to squeeze extra lemon juice over top when serving (up to you). You could also grate some fresh parmesan over top if you wish.
