Curried Shrimp Scampi with Sautéed Greens

Curried Shrimp Scampi with Sautéed Greens

Looking for an easy, quick, low-carb, paleo and keto compliant weeknight dinner with a few ingredients? Look no further! This dish is simple, flavorful and nutritious! To all you keto lovers, I think this is the perfect keto shrimp scampi. I mean, who doesn’t love shrimp scampi and with a kick of curry? Like, what’s not to like? The greens are tender, delicious and beautifully compliment the juicy shrimp. An easy weeknight dinner win!

Although its a quick and an easy dish to prepare you can also serve it for fancy occasions — because its SHRIMP… and GREENS! I’m so used to having shrimp with pasta or bread but in my venture to be healthier and limit carbs I find myself substituting greens and not even missing the ‘junky’ carbs! I feel that if I pack in the nutrients my heart and belly don’t desire much more. If you’re a fan of rice or pasta they can easily be added to this dish as well. Steamed rice, rice or wheat noodles would be a delicious additional to this dish as well. Simply steam the rice or boil the noodles of your choice, toss with a bit of olive oil and add them to your plate!

To make this recipe you need a few simple seasonings that you likely already have in your cabinet, an onion, a pound of thawed and cleaned tail-on shrimp, greens of your choice and you’re in! In this recipe I used a combo of organic spinach, chard and kale that I purchased from Costco, however, this would work well with one of the types of greens alone. You can purchase these items from your local farmer’s market as well, in which case the greens will be even fresher than the VERY convenient pre-bagged and pre-washed situation at Costco. Although buying directly from the farmer’s market is the most optimal, pre-washed bagged items can be particularly convenient if you’re pressed for time and your goal is a quick weeknight meal.
