  • 2 1/2 tablespoons grass-fed butter or ghee
  • 8 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp deveined, with tails on
  • 1 yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup bone broth
  • 8 ounces sun dried tomatoes in olive oil, SEE NOTES
  • 15 ounces canned coconut milk
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 4 cups spinach lightly packed
  • 2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • kosher salt to taste
  • black pepper to taste


  • In a large skillet over medium heat, melt the butter / oil and sauté garlic for about 1 minute. Make sure you stir frequently so it does not burn. Add shrimp to pan and cook on about 2 minutes each side until just opaque throughout & transfer to a bowl.
  • Add the diced onion to the pan and cook for 2-3 minutes until soft. Add broth to the pan, scraping the brown bits from the bottom and stirring frequently. Cook until broth has reduced down by at least 50%.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of oil from the sun-dried tomatoes jar and all of the drained, julienned sun-dried tomatoes. Fry with the onions for 2-3 minutes until fragrant and well combined.
  • Add coconut milk and nutritional yeast to the pan. Once the coconut milk has reached a boil, turn the heat down to medium-low. Add spinach to the pan and stir until slightly wilted, about 1 minute.
  • Add shrimp back into the pan and sprinkle with seasoning. Stir frequently for another 5-7 minutes, letting all of the flavors marinade. Season with salt and pepper and serve with cauliflower rice.


Drain the sun-dried tomatoes from the oil but save 1 tablespoon to cook with the dish.
