One-pot meals are a lifesaver! No really. This shrimp, spinach, and bean dinner is sooo easy to make – everything is cooked in one pot (or frying pan) making it an easy meal for the whole family to enjoy.

It’s piled with flavorful ingredients – all of which are no fuss. You can use frozen cooked peeled shrimp with tail on or off, canned cannellini beans, and canned diced tomatoes.

You’re looking at a flavorful dish with:

Shrimp One Pot Dinner Instructions

I love one-pot meals because they’re less fussy. The most work you’ll be doing here is slicing up the onion.

  1. Cook The Shrimp – Add the shrimp to a large pot or frying pan with a bit of cooking oil. Cook 2 minutes on each side (cooked shrimp will be pink in color).
  2. Sautee Onions and Garlic – Sautee the garlic and onion with a bit of cooking oil. Cook until onions turn translucent, about 1-2 minutes.
  3. Add Beans, Tomatoes and Spinach – Add in the white kidney beans and diced tomatoes. Cook 5 minutes, stirring occassionally. Stir in the spinach and cook 1-2 minutes, or until wilted.
  4. Add The Shrimp and Sprinkle with Feta – Add the shrimp and cook until heated through and top with feta cheese.
