SHRIMP AND MUSHROOM ALFREDO

Who doesn’t love Alfredo??…especially shrimp Alfredo?!πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹πŸ˜‹

Most pasta dishes are pretty simple to put together. Here’s my recipeπŸ˜€

SERVINGS: 3

INGREDIENTS:

  • 20 medium shrimp, deveined
  • 7 oz linguine pasta
  • 3 cloves garlic, grated
  • 1 tin mushrooms (115g)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp JGM PRODUCTS ground chilies
  • 1 tsp cilantro
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp JGM PRODUCTS paprika
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 4 tbsp Parmesan cheese
  • 1/2 cup cooking cream
  • 1/2 cup evaporated milk
  • 1 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1 tsp olive oil
  • 1/2 lime, juice from

Note: I honestly didn’t have my scale to weigh the shrimp to give a better idea of the measurement…sorry guys. Also, that’s actually a lot of shrimp for this recipe but I just decided to use all that I had as I loveeee shrimp! I didn’t take the shell off but you can feel free to do so if you wish.

METHOD:

  1. Cook pasta according to package instructions. Set aside.
  2. Add lime juice, cilantro, paprika, ground chilies and salt to shrimp. Mix well and set aside.
  3. Heat oil in skillet over medium heat. Add butter and allow it to melt.
  4. Add garlic and onions. Cook until onions are soft.
  5. Add mushrooms and shrimp. Cook until shrimp are all opaque (roughly 2-3 mins). Stir well to ensure the shrimp are cooked evenly on both sides.
  6. Add pepper flakes, sour cream, evaporated milk, cooking cream and Parmesan cheese. Stir well.
  7. Once the sauce thickens a bit, add the cooked pasta and mix well to coat evenly with the sauce.
  8. Serve immediately.
  9. TIME TO EAT!

When I actually made this I used 2 tbsp of the sour cream instead of 1 as stated above but I found that I was tasting it too much while eating so I decided to reduce the amount to 1tbsp.

If you do give this recipe a try, let me know which you prefer…1 or 2 tbsp of the sour cream. Would love to get your feedback!

Hope you guys enjoy! πŸ˜€
