Creamy Garlic Shrimp
  • Servings: 4
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound 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
  1. Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat
  2. Season shrimp with salt and pepper and fry for 1-2 minutes on each side, until just cooked through and pink. Transfer to bowl and set aside.
  3. Melt the butter in the same skillet. Sauté garlic until fragrant (about 30 seconds).
  4. Pour in the white wine or broth. Allow to reduce to half while scraping any bits off the bottom of the pan.
  5. Reduce heat to low-medium heat, add the cream and bring to a gentle simmer while stirring occasionally. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Add the parmesan cheese and allow sauce to gently simmer for further minute or so until the cheese melts and the sauce thickens.
  7. Add the shrimp back into pan, sprinkle with parsley. Taste test sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
  8. Serve over pasta.
