Keto Garlic Shrimp w/ Cream Sauce

I grew up in Missouri so my memories of shrimp are varied from Red Lobster to the heavily breaded popcorn shrimp I would douse in ketchup😕What kid of the 80s didn’t though, right?

But this shrimp, this shrimp is blanketed with a creamy, herb & parmesean sauce that is thickened with cream cheese! Yes folks, no flours or thickeners needed!! My kind of sauce!

I will walk you through how to make this restaurant worthy, low carb dish that will satisfy your Italian cravings❤

Get all of your ingredients chopped and ready before you begin!
Melt 2 Tbsp butter in a hot skillet. Swirl around to coat.
Add 6 cloves of minced fresh garlic, saute 1 minute, no more.

Add 1 lb deveined & peeled shrimp. These are large prawns. Any shrimp will work here.
Cook shrimp for 2 minutes only! 1 minute each side, you do NOT want to overcook them!
They should look like this! Set aside in a bowl.
Saute 1 Tbsp butter in the skillet scraping the skillet bottom with a whisk.
Add 1/2 cup chopped onion to the skillet. Saute 3 minutes.
Add 1/4 tsp dried parsley.
Add in 1 3/4 cup half and half to the skillet whisking up crunchy bits.

Chop 2oz of cream cheese.
Whisk in well and simmer sauce to thicken. Approx. 8 minutes
Add 1/2 cup shredded parmesean,I prefer freshly grated!
Add 1/4 tsp of each: oregano & basil, whisk well. Simmer 5 minutes.
When it coats the back of a spoon like this, add salt and pepper to taste. I recommend trying it until it is right for you😊
Add in 1/3 cup fresh spinach.
Stir shrimp back in and take off the heat!
Time to eat!! I had mine with cauliflower rice (shredded cauliflower sauteed 5min in a skillet) AND 1 cup of salad greens with a Zero carb vinegarette!
