Shrimp Scampi With Fresh Spinach & Cherry/Grape Tomatoes

I love to share my cooking process on my social media and anyone that follows me enjoys this content. I made a Shrimp Scampi dish for lunch one day and posted it to both my personal and business page on instagram and the comments and questions i received afterwards was overwhelming! I often get a lot of compliments on my decor, design aesthetic and cooking, and it really warms my heart how I seem to inspire and motivate others.

I decided to write a blog post on this recipe as I had a lot of requests for it on instagram and snapchat! If you make this dish and post content, tag me in it so I can show some love! 

Ready In

Approx. 30-35 Minutes


4-5 People




1 pound of Fresh Tiger Shrimp (Peeled)
2 Tablespoon of Olive oil
2 Tablespoon Of Unsalted Butter
5-6 Garlic Cloves (Chopped)
10 Ounces of Cherry and/or Grape Tomatoes
1/4 Cup Of Chicken Broth
Fresh Spinach
Italian Seasoning
Black Pepper & Salt
Chilli Flakes
Capellini (Or spaghetti)


  • Wash (also rinse with lemon juice), Peel and season shrimp with italian seasoning, chilli flakes and black pepper.
  • Wash and cut the stems off the spinach and place in separate clean bowl.
  • Wash and cut tomatoes in half and place in separate clean bowl.
  • Cut Garlic cloves into fine dice sizes.


  • Pour the olive oil and butter in medium skillet on medium heat. Add garlic once pan is hot and saute for about 20-30 seconds. Do not burn!

  • Add in Chopped tomatoes and stir slowly cooking it until it loses its shape and becomes "squishy".

  • Pour in seasoned Shrimp and spinach and reduce heat slightly, constantly stirring and turning the mixture in the skillet.

  • After stirring the mix for about 5-10 minutes, add in your chicken broth.

  • In a separate pot, boil pasta in salted water with a dash of olive oil to keep from sticking. Once water comes to a boil add pasta.

  • Back to the pot of shrimp, garlic, tomatoes & spinach, now you sprinkle black pepper & salt as needed.

  • Allow the pot mixture to cook on medium heat for about 5-10 minutes, constantly stirring to avoid overcooking the shrimp and drying out the liquid. Reduce to low before adding over the pasta.

  • Once pasta is finished cooking, (capellini takes about 5 minutes or less) drain and add the pasta to the pot of shrimp and mix together. For more liquid, simply add more chicken broth.


- Use FRESH ingredients for the best taste and quality.
- Buy FRESH shrimp by the pound instead of bagged for best quality shrimp.
- 1 pound of shrimp usually contains 15-20 big pieces of shrimp.
- Use Extra Olive Virgin Oil and Block Unsalted Butter.
- Defrost shrimp by putting in COLD water in a clean silver bowl and wash and rinse with cold water and lemon juice.
