    •  6 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil

    •  1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats

    •  2 cups water

    •  ½ teaspoon salt

    •  ½ teaspoon ground pepper

    •  1 pound raw shrimp

    •  ⅛ teaspoon cayenne pepper

    •  1 pound baby spinach

    •  ¼ teaspoon hot sauce

  •  ½ cup grated Parmesan cheese


1. Heat 2 teaspoons oil and 1 teaspoon butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat until the butter is melted. Add scallion whites and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, 2 to 3 minutes.

2. Add oats and stir for 1 minute, then add water and ¼ teaspoon each salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer; cook, stirring often, until creamy, 8 to 10 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, sprinkle shrimp with cayenne and the remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook until just opaque, 2 to 4 minutes per side. Transfer to a clean bowl; cover to keep warm.

4. Add the remaining 1 teaspoon oil and 1 teaspoon butter to the skillet. Add half the spinach; cook, stirring, until slightly wilted, about 1 minute. Add the remaining spinach and cook, stirring, until wilted, 2 to 3 minutes more. Add hot sauce and the remaining ¼ teaspoon salt.

5. Stir cheese and the remaining 1 teaspoon butter into the oats. Serve the oats with the spinach and shrimp. Sprinkle with the scallion greens.
