- Add pepper flakes and stir a couple times.
- Add shrimp and rum and let boil a couple of minutes, flip the shrimp and continue to cook just until pink and curled. Do not over cook!
- Lower heat to low and add mustard, paprika, oregano, lime juice salt and pepper and stir or toss to combine.
- Add spinach a bit at a time, if needed, tossing with tongs to cook down with the hot shrimp/sauce.
- Serve immediately over toasted bread, pasta or rice
