Guide on making the tastiest creamy garlic shrimp:
- 1 lb. shrimp
- 1 1/2 cups reduced-fat cream
- 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
- 1/2 cup dry white wine or chicken broth
- 6 cloves garlic (minced)
- 2 tbsp unsalted butter
- 2 tbsp fresh chopped parsley
- 1 tbsp olive oil
Start by heating up the olive oil in a large skillet that is over medium-high heat.
Now season the shrimp with salt and pepper to taste and fry it for approximately 2 minutes or until it is almost pink but not cooked completely. Then transfer to a bowl and set the shrimp aside.
Next, using the same skillet, melt the butter. After that, sauté the garlic until fragrant, which should take roughly 30 seconds. Then depending on what you have or want to use, add the white wine or chicken broth.
Allow the mixture to reduce to half while meanwhile scraping any bits left of the bottom of the skillet.
After that, reduce the heat to medium-low and add the cream. Bring to a simmer and stir the mixture occasionally. Again season with salt and pepper according to your taste.
Then add the parmesan and let the sauce simmer for about a minute or two so that the cheese melts and sauce thickens.
Finally, take the shrimp out of the bowl and place it back into the skillet. Sprinkle with some parsley and add some salt and pepper if needed.
Then place the creamy garlic shrimp over some pasta, steamed veggies, rice and serve with fresh lemon slices if desired. You could also squeeze the juice out of a lemon on top of the shrimp for a deeper flavor.
