Speedy Shrimp and Spinach Salad

When it comes to cooking, everyone appreciates a meal which is easy to make... tasting especially good sometimes just becomes an added bonus. Throw in being healthy and you've got a keeper for sure! Even with a slice of whole wheat bread, this meal barely hits 200 calories, but with all the flavor and filling feeling it leaves you with, you wouldn't know it! And it take less than ten minutes to make!

Warm Shrimp and Spinach Salad
Source: Me! (Jessica)
Servings: 1 if served as main dish, 2 if served over pasta.

1/2 tsp coconut oil
1/2 tsp minced garlic (or one clove fresh)
~15 grape tomatoes
~12 cooked, tail-off shrimp (mine is the 50-70 count from Costco)
~1 cup raw baby spinach
lemon juice
balsamic vinegar
parmesan cheese

In a skillet over medium heat melt coconut oil. Add garlic and saute until golden. Add shrimp and cover. Cut tomatoes in half and add to the skillet once the shrimp has (mostly) thawed. Salt and pepper to taste. Continue cooking covered for a couple minutes to allow tomatoes to slightly stew. Remove cover and continue cooking for another minute to allow some of the water to evaporate. Add spinach and toss with tomatoes, shrimp, and juices. Transfer to plate and drizzle with lemon juice and balsamic vinegar. Top with parmesan cheese and enjoy!
