Can you believe it took me longer to photograph this recipe than it did for me to cook it? Seriously. It only takes 15 minutes to whip up this dish of sautéed shrimp with artichokes, white beans, and spinach –and a pot of quinoa to serve with it. Weeknight dinner just doesn’t get much easier than this!

One of my favorite things about this shrimp and artichoke sauté is that you only need a handful of ingredients, and they’re all things that I always have on hand: a bag of Bumble Bee SuperFresh® Lemon Shrimp with Garlic & Herbs, a can of artichokes, a can of small white beans, and some fresh baby spinach.

I’ve written about Bumble Bee SuperFresh® before, and I love keeping a few bags in my freezer for nights when I want a healthy dinner that doesn’t take a lot of effort or planning – since the shrimp cook from frozen, you don’t even need to worry about pulling anything out to defrost. While you can serve them  simply over some pasta or rice, they also make a great, flavorful shortcut for recipes like this one.

Inside the bag of shrimp, you’ll find fresh frozen shrimp and several disks of seasoned butter. It’s all natural, gluten free, and contains a very short list of real, recognizable ingredients (shrimp, butter, lemon juice and zest, white wine, olive oil, garlic, and herbs). When you prepare the shrimp according to the directions on the package the butter melts into a delicious scampi-like sauce; there’s just enough to add a little bit of flavor to every bite of this sauté.

If you have leftovers, add some fresh lemon juice and enjoy them chilled as a delicious salad. (The shrimp don’t reheat well – they’ll overcook and get tough.)

  1. I am unable to get the prescribed Bumble Bee frozen shrimp. What do you suggest instead and how much (weight)? What size can beans? Thank you, Karen

    • I’d start with 1 pound of shrimp and 1 tablespoon each of butter and olive oil. Add some garlic, parsley, and the zest and juice from one lemon. I used a 15 ounce can of beans.
