Parmesan Shrimp w/ Spinach & Artichokes Over Angel Hair Pasta

Here's another fabulous recipe that has made it onto "my favorites list". Truly divine, cher, and guaranteed to please your family and your guests. Start with succulent Gulf shrimp and add spinach, artichokes, and tomatoes, all in a rich lemon, buttery, garlic sauce, and serve over angel hair pasta, and top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese. Oh cest bon! Bon Appetit!

Parmesan Shrimp w/ Spinach and Artichokes Over Angel Hair Pasta

1 lb. large shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 tbs. Cajun seasoning
2 eggs, beaten, plus a little milk
1 cup flour, to dust
2 tbs.'s olive oil

2 tbs.'s butter
1 tsp. Cajun seasoning
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
1 medium tomato, chopped
1 8 oz. jar artichoke hearts, drained
1/3 cup dry white wine
Juice of 1/2 lemon
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped

3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
1 lb. package angel hair pasta, cooked and drained


In large bowl, season shrimp with Cajun seasoning. Place flour and eggs in two separate, shallow dishes. Dredge seasoned shrimp in flour, and then in egg mixture, and then back in flour. Place olive oil in a large nonstick skillet, on medium heat, and pan fry shrimp, for 3 minutes on each side, or until golden. Remove from skillet , set aside, and keep warm..

Add butter to skillet, then add garlic, diced tomatoes, spinach, artichokes, and parsley. Sprinkle with Cajun seasoning. Saute for 5 minutes and add white wine and lemon juice. Lower heat and simmer for 10 minutes. Mix veggie mixture with pasta, fold in shrimp, and top with Parmesan cheese. Serve with French bread and maybe a glass of wine! Cheers, cher! Sinfully good!

Have a wonderful week-end, ya'll! Merci beaucoup for stopping by!

All the Saints in Heaven - that looks delicious! I think I just found what I'll be cooking this weekend. After I finish weather prep in the yard.

John said...

With luck there will be no upset from the storm.

ellen abbott said...

Hopefully the turbulence on the surface won't affect the bottom and it stays capped.

Joanne said...

Hoping that Bonnie fizzles, or fades, or changes course, anything to help your beautiful region recover.

Susanna Powers said...

When I saw your recipe title, I thought, "What's not to like!" Sounds wonderful. And yes, it's a shame about Tropical Storm Bonnie's direction. We'll all be hoping and/or praying it doesn't get any stronger than they predict. sp

Katherine Roberts Aucoin said...

And to think I was stressing about what to make for dinner to night...Marguerite, you canme through as always...I'll be in heaven tonight enjoying this.

Hope that storm doesn't get any stronger!

Rosaria Williams said...

Angel hair shrimp sounds tasty! Keep our fingers crossed that Bonnie passes peacefully.

Unknown said...

First Off...that recipe...THANK YOU. I have been craving something like this...really badly. Yum-O

Secondly, you are constantly in my thoughts and prayers. i will be blowing hard so this storm will divert. I will keep checking updates and PLEASE let me know that you are okay. What we do not need is anymore disaster in that area and especially where you are concerned. Batten down the hatches.

Eddie Bluelights said...

Another enticing recipe! Lovely grub. Now look, Marguerite, I have been trying to start a diet and I have been meaning to do so since 1986 because I am about 4 stones overweight, which equates to your 56 pounds. Then perhaps my feet might feel better.

With all your beautiful recipes and Lola's as well, I go straight to the kitchen to have a secret tuck in! LOL
Seriously, I am much better and I had a lovely meal with 4 lady nurse friends from my previous job. I was the only thorn amongst 4 roses! Had a great time entertaining them all but wish you were there and I then would have had eyes just for you LOL

I hope and pray the hurricane near you does not develop or veers a long way from you.

I am away to a wedding tomorrow and will stay overnight. See you soon - hugs, Eddie

There is not a single ingredient here that I do not love...Looks wonderful:)

California Girl said...

Keeping an eye on the weather down there. Fingers crossed Bonnie does not pick up speed again. You certainly are a cheerful girl, M. I guess you have to be with all that's occurred over the past years.

New masthead photo is adorable and the parm shrimp recipe...urp! yum.

Cloudia said...

Praying for the storm to turn as only a live-aboard can!

You're killin` me with those recipes, Cheri!

Velva said...

I think your prayers were answered with Tropical Storm Bonnie-The wind shear cut it to a tropical depression.
This meal is a great kick-back, enjoy a good glass of beer or wine, type of meal.

Kathryn Magendie said...

Oh! that looks good!

we had gulf shrimp "burgers" with homemade tartar sauce on onion rolls - cest ce bon (wait, how do you spell that *laughing* been gone from Louisiana too long to remember!)

As for your comment on book publishing - non fiction books (and I suppose cookbooks would come under this, to!) are different in some ways from fiction, so . . .:-)

Marguerite said...

After a short interval so nice to be with you again! You and your pages are always spectacular. Get a great Sunday!

Vagabonde said...

This shrimp dish sounds very tasty – I copied it. Last week I created a dish and took pictures along the way. Well, it takes a lot of time to write down every ingredient and take pictures. I now can appreciate all the hard work you do to publish posts with recipes on your blog. I don’t know if I’ll ever make a post out of my recipe – I have too many trips to write about now.

Eddie Bluelights said...

Let's hope all the future storms fall apart.
Had a ball at the wedding!! LOL
A beautiful typical English Village near Reading. Wonderful church service and great to see the relations again. The bride made a beeline for me of course, to see her Uncle Eddie LOL

Marguerite said...

Cal. Girl- Thankfully, the whole storm fell apart, before hitting land. I try to stay positive. So glad you like the recipe, and hope that you try it!

Cloudia- Merci for your prayers, cher, and your sweet comment! Aloha!

K.- You must mean "seafood recipe" lol As you know, the supply is a little short, right now. More soon! Thanks for stopping by, cher!

Drick- Merci beaucoup for your kind comment, cher! It is fab and if you make it, I guarantee that it will be on your faves list, too! Thank God, it did!

Velva- I hope that's it, for a while, or at least until they can kill the well. Thanks, it goes perfect with a dry white wine.

Kat- Gulf shrimp burgers sound fab! Ca cest bon, sha! You are so lucky to be married to a man who can cook! Thanks for coming by!

Maggie May said...

First of all, I was so relieved to hear that Bonnie fizzled out. Must have been really scary.

The meal is magnificent. Just the type of thing I love!

Eddie- Thanks, cher, me too! Glad you had fun! I just love weddings, especially the food and happiness that surrounds them.
