Plump shrimp is cooked to perfection in luxuriously creamy and rich garlic sauce for a true culinary masterpiece. This wonderful and appetizing shrimp dish can be served absolutely with anything. This meal is exceptionally good served on a bed of freshly cooked pasta with chicken or homemade mashed potatoes for wholesome dinner. But you can keep it Keto or low carb and offer it with a celery salad or cauliflower rice instead. Or you can serve it with colorful crunchy vegetables to make this dish great for your diet. The sauce is delicate and lets the sea flavored taste of shrimp shine through.
Freshly grated parmesan cheese brings in a savory note, nothing overwhelming, just a touch to balance out the sweetness of the cream and shrimp. Fragrant garlic infuses the sauce, making it a powerhouse of aromas. Dry wine also helps to build the complexity of flavors. I like using Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon blanc.
Since the sweet shrimp is still the star of the dish I suggest you buy wild caught, fresh local shrimp for the best results.
Luckily, living in Florida we have plenty of it here. My favorites are the key west pinks. They are extra sweet with almost lobster like taste and flavor. The delicious dish comes together in a short 20 minutes and is fit to be a quick mid-week dinner or a fancy party meal. It is so good, no one will be able to resist it. People are always raving about it, giving me great reviews and begging for the recipe. And my personal favorite part I do not need to spend hours in the kitchen making it!
