Shrimp bowl

Shrimp Florentine Bowl

I could not stand eating shrimp until I was 30 years old.  I know shrimp is one of the most popular southern seafood items, but I just did not like it.  Finally at aged 30, I was served shrimp at a dinner and tried it.  After a few bites I realized it was okay.  Now it is one of my favorite foods.
Wild caught U.S. shrimp is the best to eat, both nutritionally and environmentally.  Much of the farm-raised shrimp is from the far east and often is raised using questionable environmental practices.  Now I purchase only wild caught when it is on sale in the supermarket.

Our local Fresh Market had wild caught South Carolina shrimp on sale all this month.   I bought some recently and made a wonderful quick and easy dinner with it. Did you know a recipe that has Florentine in the name includes spinach as one ingredient?  I hope you enjoy the recipe.  You can find more healthy recipes here.
