A few years ago I belonged to a food blog cooking group called CEiMB, see my posts here or the general ones here, which cooked with Ellie Krieger recipes. I loved that group and making Ellie's recipes as her recipes are always healthy and delicious. (There are still recipes that I learned then that I make over and over again and have become favorites.)
Expressing my desire to regularly cook with Ellie's recipes again, three other CEiMB faithfuls and I decided to start cooking and blogging Ellie's recipes, starting with her newest book Weeknight Wonders. We are calling the new group Eating with Ellie (EwE for short). Margaret, Peggy, Chaya, and I, along with newbies Gaye and Glennis, are setting out to increase the variety and nutrition in our weeknight dinners. We'd love to have you join in at any time, leave your post link at our new site, here, and enjoy cooking fresh, healthy, quick meals using Ellie Krieger's recipes with us.
The first recipe we made is Shrimp with Spinach, Garlic, and Smoked Paprika and is found on page 170 of Ellie Krieger's cookbook Weeknight Wonders. You can also find the recipe online here.
Ingredient list: shrimp, garlic, spinach, olive oil, paprika, salt, and cayenne pepper.
This recipe was incredibly easy for a weeknight and something I would be extremely happy to order and be served at a restaurant, a wonderful recipe. The whole thing takes less than 15 minutes, if even that. The flavors compliment each other very nicely so that the shrimp flavor is still front and center with the paprika and the teeny bit of cayenne just playing support roles. I decided to serve it over spaghetti as I had some leftover from a previous meal, so warming that up in a bit of boiling water made the whole meal come together super fast for a weeknight meal where time is of the essence and fussy time-consuming preparations are just not happening.
