Fried catfish with shrimp




1 1/2 pounds jumbo Shrimp 

2 tablespoons butter

2 handfuls of baby spinach



2 cloves minced garlic 

Cajun seasoning 

heavy cream

pinch of nutmeg 

cream cheese

grated parmesan cheese


Season peeled and deveined shrimp with salt pepper and Cajun seasoning (Use your judgement when seasoning your food. I don't measure but I'm sure it was no more than a 1/4 teaspoon of salt and pepper, maybe 1 teaspoon Cajun seasoning) 

Bring pan to med high heat 


Cook shrimp about one minute per side then remove from pan and set aside

Pour any excess oil from the pan then add the minced garlic, spinach and butter 

stir about a minute. Reduce heat to med low 

Cook pasta per package directions 

Add heavy cream, ( I really don't measure when I'm cooking but I can tell you that I usually get a quart of heavy cream and I use about 3/4 of it)  grated parmesan cheese, and a pinch of nutmeg.   I like to put a lil red pepper flakes in mine

Let simmer 5 minutes 

Add 1 or two tablespoons cream cheese (optional) Whenever I make dishes with a cream sauce I like to add cream cheese, I think it gives it a smooth silky texture 

Add shrimp back to the pan reserving 5 or 6 to place on top 

Toss well with pasta. Then plate putting the reserved shrimp on top of the pasta.
