Ingredientes para 4 porciones EN ESPAÑOL

  • 1 1/2 libra de camarones crudos, pelados y desvenados
  • 12 oz de pasta de trigo (linguini)
  • 1 1/2 tazas de tomates cherry, cortados por la mitad
  • 1/2 taza de aceitunas Kalamata
  • ralladura de 1 limón (alrededor de 3-4 cucharadas)
  • 1 cucharada de condimento italiano (o su elección de hierbas secas)
  • 1 cucharada de aceite de oliva
  • pizca de sal marina y pimienta
  • 4 1/2 tazas de agua (o caldo de pollo bajo en sodio para más sabor)
  • 4 tazas de espinacas crudas
  • Adornar con:
    • Queso feta
    • jugo de limón
Steps
  1. Set a skillet on HIGH heat.  Once hot, spray with a little oil then add the shrimp.  Let the shrimp sear for 2-3 minutes then mix it up in the skillet so that it cooks through, about 5 to 7 minutes total.  Then remove the shrimp from the skillet.
  2. Set the skillet on medium high heat, then add the rest of the pasta ingredients EXCEPT the spinach.
  3. Bring the pot to a simmer and continuously stir and fold the pasta using tongs, ensuring it is not sticking.  Once nearly all the water has been absorbed and the pasta has been cooked, reduce the heat to low.
  4. Add the spinach and shrimp to the pasta and fold until the spinach wilts into the pasta.
  5. Season to taste with sea salt, pepper and fresh lemon juice.  Enjoy this pasta hot or cold.  Garnish individual servings with feta if you’d like.

PASOS EN ESPAÑOL

  1. Agregue una sartén a fuego ALTO. Una vez caliente, rocíe con un poco de aceite y luego agregue los camarones. Deje que los camarones se doren durante 2-3 minutos y luego mézclelos en la sartén para que se cocinen bien, aproximadamente de 5 a 7 minutos en total. Luego retire los camarones de la sartén.
  2. Agregue la sartén a fuego medio alto, luego agregue el resto de los ingredientes de la pasta, EXCEPTO las espinacas.
  3. Lleve la olla a fuego lento y revuelva y doble continuamente la pasta con tenazas, asegurándose de que no se pegue. Una vez que se haya absorbido casi toda el agua y la pasta se haya cocinado, reduzca el fuego a bajo.
  4. Agregue las espinacas y los camarones a la pasta y doble hasta que las espinacas se marchiten en la pasta.
  5. Sazona al gusto con sal marina, pimienta y jugo de limón fresco. Disfruta esta pasta caliente o fría. Adorne las porciones individuales con queso feta si lo desea.
