I’ve spent this week experimenting with food…. specifically low carb dishes that I can devour and not feel guilty about later. Last night’s was, by far, the best so far! It was so easy it’s almost a shame to even share because I can’t let the family know that I didn’t actually slave over this meal for hours. However, I’m more than willing to sacrifice my secret and share this with you because, well quite frankly, it’s too good to NOT share it!
You will need:
Cooked shrimp (medium, thawed)
3 cloves garlic, minced (very fine)
3/4 stick real butter
1 to 1.5 cup heavy cream
Shaved Parmesan cheese*
Salt and Pepper
*Use your own judgement for the amount of cheese; I only used about 1/8 cup
To prepare: Melt 1/2 the butter over medium heat, then add garlic and cook until lightly browned. Add heavy cream, the rest of the butter, salt, and pepper and stir until completely blended. When bubbly, add Parmesan and cook for 10-15 minutes, or until cheese no longer strings. Pour hot sauce over grilled shrimp and serve with fresh steamed broccoli.
Serving size: 21 shrimp
