Directions:(Creole Shrimp)

  1. Melt 1 tablespoon butter in a small saucepan. Add 2 tablespoons green onion and 1 tablespoon garlic and cook over low heat until softened, about 3 minutes. Add beer and Worcestershire sauce and increase heat to medium-high. Boil to reduce sauce to 1 cup, 15 to 20 minutes. Remove from heat.
  2. In a small bowl, combine cumin, herbes de Provence, salt, cayenne pepper, paprika, and ground black pepper. Set aside.
  3. In a large sauté pan, heat oil until shimmering. Add remaining 4 tablespoons green onion, remaining 2 teaspoons garlic, and green and red bell pepper. Sprinkle with spice mixture and sauté until vegetables have softened, about 5 minutes. Add shrimp and sear on one side, about 1 minute. Flip shrimp and add reserved sauce, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, and cream, and bring to a simmer. When shrimp are pink on both sides, about 2 minutes, add spinach a handful at a time, stirring to coat with sauce. When spinach has wilted, remove pan from heat, stir in lemon juice, and serve immediately over Cheddar grits.
