By: u/lowcarbspark



  • 1 pound shrimp tails on or off

  • 1 tbsp olive oil

  • 2 tbsp unsalted butter

  • 6 cloves garlic minced

  • 1/2 cup dry white wine

  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream

  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese

  • 2 tbsp fresh parsley

  • Salt and pepper



  1. Cook the Srimps – In a medium pan over medium heat, pour olive oil. Add the shrimps and season with salt and pepper. Sear the shrimps for 1-2 minutes on each side or until pink. Transfer to a plate and set aside.

  2. Make the Creamy Garlic Parmesan Sauce. Reduce the heat and pour in the wine or broth and rasp. Stir to combine. Bring to a simmer.

  3. Pour the cream and stir to mix. Season with salt and pepper to taste and simmer for a few minutes.

  4. Add the parmesan cheese, and allow to simmer until the cheese is incorporated and the sauce thickens.

  5. Return the shrimp into the pan, generously sprinkle with parsley and stir to combine. If needed, add more salt and pepper.

  6. Enjoy while it’s still hot over pasta, steamed vegetables, or dip some bread into the sauce.
