The word shrimp comes from the Middle English word “shrimpe” which means ‘pygmy’ or a reference to the crustacean itself. Shrimp is not only highly nutritious; it is the most popular shellfish in the United States as well. It is a popular ingredient in appetizers, salads, chowders, and of course, as a main dish. Its firm, translucent flesh of raw shrimp is low in calories and saturated fat that makes it a really healthier alternative to meat proteins. An amazing twist of seafood and scalloped potatoes together is here! This shrimp and scalloped potato recipe is incredulously alluring because of the fresh sea food aroma it gives off. This would be a total hit to your family because of its unique blend of ingredients; with its exquisite healthy shrimps, tasty potatoes, and spinach blended together it creates a wonderful piece of recipe you’ll surely keep!

  • 2¼ cups water (285 ml)
  • ⅓ cup 2% milk (75 ml)
