Creamy Garlic Parmesan Shrimp

June 4, 2022

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Shrimp – Crazy delectable shrimp in a rich, buttery, creamy garlic Parmesan sauce with a touch of parmesan cheese. It’s quick and delicious, and it only takes 15 minutes to make!

It’s possible to create the most delicious dishes out of unexpected ingredients found in the refrigerator, as in this creamy garlic Parmesan shrimp recipe.

Since I had leftover chicken broth, heavy whipping cream, Parmesan cheese, and shrimp on hand, I made them into this highly fantastic supper, which I served over spaghetti. What a delectable repast!

It just took me 15 minutes to cook the meal. The fact that I always have a bag of frozen shelled, deveined, tail-on shrimp on hand makes it a snap to whip up this creamy garlic Parmesan shrimp dish.

I used cayenne pepper and lemon juice to cut through the richness of the cream. The finished result is so delectable that I’m only thinking about opening a restaurant to serve this dish. We wish you a delicious meal!
