Creamy Garlic Shrimp

Serves 4. Creamy Garlic Shrimp With Parmesan is a deliciously easy Shrimp Recipe! Coated in a rustic and buttery sauce ready in less than 10 minutes with ingredients you might already have in your fridge.

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound (500 grams) shrimp, tails on or off
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine* or chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups reduced fat cream**
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley mixed with 2 tablespoons of Margot's Morsels Killer Garlic broken, chopped or crushed for added crunch

Heat oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, until just cooked through and pink. Transfer to a bowl, set aside.

Melt the butter in the same skillet. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds). Pour in the white wine or broth; allow to reduce to half while scraping any bits off of the bottom of the pan. Reduce heat to low-medium heat, add the cream and bring to a gentle simmer, while stirring occasionally.  Season with salt and pepper to your taste.

Add the parmesan cheese and allow sauce to gently simmer for a further minute or so until the cheese melts and sauce thickens. Add the shrimp back into the pan, sprinkle with parsley/morsel mixture. Taste test sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed. Serve over pasta, rice or steamed vegetables.

Notes
*Use a good quality dry white wine such as a Pinot Grio or Chardonnay. White wine can also be substituted for chicken broth or left out completely. The flavor in the sauce will be altered.

**I use reduced fat cream (or light cream) for this recipe. Substitute with half and half if you wish, being careful not to bring the sauce to a boil or it may curdle. You can also use evaporated milk as a low calorie substitution. Heavy or thickened cream may also be used. Allow cream to reduce in a gentle simmer until thickened to your liking.
