Creamy garlic butter Tuscan shrimp

  1. In a large skillet, heat the oil to medium-high. Fry the garlic in the melted butter until fragrant (about one minute). Fry the shrimp for two minutes on each side, turning once until they are pink and just cooked through. Move to a bowl; place aside.
  2. Fry the onion in the skillet’s remaining butter. While scraping any bits from the pan’s bottom, add the white wine, if using, and let it reduce to half. Fry the sun-dried tomatoes for one to two minutes to let their flavors come out.
  3. Add the half-and-half and bring to a gentle simmer over low to medium heat, stirring occasionally. To your liking, season with salt and pepper.
  4. The spinach should wilt in the sauce before the parmesan cheese is added. Continue simmering the sauce for a further minute until the cheese is incorporated into the sauce. Add the milk/cornstarch mixture to the center of the pan for a thicker sauce. Continue simmering while rapidly stirring the mixture until the sauce thickens.)
  5. Return the shrimp to the pan; Stir in the parsley and herbs before serving.
  6. Serve with rice, pasta, or steamed
