How to make:
1 pound shrimp, fresh or frozen
1 teaspoon onion powder
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt and cracked black pepper
4 oz chopped sun-dried tomatoes, drained from oil – keep 2 tablespoons oil reserved
1 cup half-and-half (or heavy whipping cream)
1/2 cup vegetable or chicken broth (I highly recommend bone broth)
1 cup shredded mozzarella (or parmesan)
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 teaspoon crushed fennel seeds, optional
1/4 teaspoon red chili pepper flakes
1/8 teaspoon paprika
1 tablespoon grated parmesan, for garnish
Because this recipe does not use pasta you can use Pasta Zero by Nasoya,
which is also called Shirataki Noodles. There are virtually zero carbs in these.
You can also used riced cauliflower.
Directions to make:
1. Heat 2 tablespoons of the reserved sun-dried tomato oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add shrimp on one layer and cook on each side for about 1 minute each, until shrimp turns pink on both sides, season shrimp with salt while cooking. Remove the shrimp to a plate. 2. To the same skillet, add sun-dried tomatoes and minced garlic. Saute sun-dried tomatoes in oil remaining from shrimp on medium heat, stirring, for 1 minute until the garlic is fragrant. Add the broth and half and half to the skillet and bring to a simmer. Add shredded mozzarella and continue cooking the sauce on low simmer heat, constantly stirring, until all the cheese melts and the creamy sauce forms. If the sauce is too thick, add a small amount of half-and-half. 4. Add dried basil, crushed fennel seeds, crushed red pepper flakes, paprika and stir well. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper. 5. Stir the cooked shrimp into the sauce. If the sauce gets too thick, add a small amount of half-and-half or broth. Let everything simmer on low for a couple of minutes for flavors to combine. Garnish with grated parmesan if you like, and serve the creamy garlic shrimp immediately over riced cauliflower or shirataki noodles!
