Creamy Tuscan Shrimp / Chicken

Creamy garlic Tuscan shrimp with sun-dried tomatoes, spinach, and basil is rich, decadent, and ready in about 15 minutes! You can even make it with chicken instead of shrimp!

Prep Time 10 mins

Cook Time 10 mins

Total Time 20 mins

Servings 4-6 people


1 pound shrimp (I used 31-40 count size) thawed & peeled

2 tablespoons butter

1 tablespoon flour

3-4 cloves garlic minced

2 cup heavy/whipping cream

ΒΌ cup Parmesan, shredded

1/2 teaspoon lemon juice

1 teaspoon Italian seasoning

1/4 cup sun-dried tomatoes chopped or julienned

1 cup (packed) fresh baby spinach

Handful fresh basil, julienned

Salt & pepper to taste


Melt the butter on medium-high heat in a large skillet. Add the flour and cook for about a minute, stirring until smooth.

Add the garlic and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Stir in the cream, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, Parmesan and sun-dried tomatoes. Simmer for 2 minutes.

Add the shrimp and cook for around 5 minutes or until they’re cooked through and the sauce is slightly thickened, taking care not to overcook them.

Add the spinach and basil and cook for another 2-3 minutes. Season with salt & pepper to taste.
