I have always loved a good Alfredo sauce. The creaminess of the Alfredo is what I really appreciate either on a pizza or with some pasta. Alfredo complements shrimp and chicken wonderfully. I have used shrimp in this recipe since it cooks under 5 minutes. This recipe is great for real quick meals and I really hope you enjoy it!
I know you can always buy a jar of Alfredo and put together your meal but these jars of Alfredo have a lot of preservatives and they use food starches to thicken the sauce. So, when it takes under 15 minutes to make homemade Alfredo, why not?
And trust me, after trying this easy recipe, you are not going back to the ready-made jars!
This recipe is flour free! Well, minus the pasta. It can be a a wonderful recipe for all those on a low- carb diet.
Since Alfredo sauce does not reheat well and the oil tends to separate out when you do, I made a really small potion just for myself!
So here’s a recipe of shrimp swimming in luscious creamy homemade Alfredo sauce.
- Shrimp (peeled and deveined)
- 1 teaspoon butter
- 5-6 cloves of garlic chopped
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Half cup parmesan and Mozzarella mixed
- 1 teaspoon chilly flakes
- 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
- 1 teaspoon black pepper powder
- Salt to taste
- chopped parsley
Chop the garlic and parsley and keep aside. You could also use coriander if you like the flavor.
Wash the shrimp and set aside. I used TJ’s frozen raw shrimp. They separate easily and don’t take time to thaw. I left the tails on.
Boil your pasta with a drop of oil and a pinch of salt.
I used the microwave. 6 minutes work perfectly for farfalle.
In a sauce pan,
Add the butter and once it has melted, throw in the garlic.
Once the garlic has turned golden brown, add the heavy cream.
Add the cheese and bring to boil.
Keep stirring till the ladle is coated.
Add the parsley, chilly flakes, pepper and seasoning.
Add the shrimp. Add salt accordingly.
Once the shrimp turns orange, add the pasta.
And you have your shrimp in Alfredo sauce.
You could garnish it with some more Parmesan.☺️
