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.

How To Make Shrimp with Cannellini Beans

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.
