Creamy Garlic Shrimp with Parmesan

Creamy garlic shrimp with parmesan – a dish that I don’t even know how to describe. I feel that whatever I write about it is not enough. I practically have no words to describe this dish. I passed out with appetite while cooking, then while editing the pictures, and then while writing the recipe. The creamy garlic parmesan cream sauce is super flavorful and indulges all my taste buds.
I like these kinds of recipes that are super quick and easy to prepare and whose taste is divine. And shrimp are always in my freezer. They are always perfect for a delicious dinner. Residents around the Mediterranean often enjoy this dish and they cook seafood in any way. Let’s be inspired by them and enjoy delicious dishes.

Creamy Garlic Shrimp with Parmesan + Wine = LOVE

When you think of typical Mediterranean dishes, you automatically think of a type of wine that matches them. So what wine do we choose for these prawns in creamy garlic sauce?

We need a wine with balanced acidity, aromatic and elegant. We find all these characteristics in the Sauvignon Blanc variety. This wine goes perfectly with dishes containing garlic. Also, a glass of prosecco goes very well with this dish. This is often the combination I choose when I visit one of the countries bathed in the waters of the Mediterranean. Let’s move on to another topic because I already missed the holidays.

What do I do when I don’t have the perfect wine for this dish?

Well, I’m making some delicious lemonade. I find it goes so well with this creamy garlic shrimp recipe that I often choose it over a glass of wine. Cold water, lemon juice, honey, and a little mint…fabulous.

How many shrimp recipes exist?

I think the most popular shrimp recipes are: white sauce shrimp, shrimp saganaki, garlic butter shrimp, and shrimp pasta. Most friends love shrimp and the recipes listed above are the most loved. I admit that these recipes are also on my list most often. But I decided to prepare the shrimp differently, match them with other ingredients, and cook them differently. And I started researching and compiling a list of recipes that I still make from time to time or want to make shortly:

The shrimp taco looks like a great dish to me. Let’s thank the Mexicans for this invention. I can’t wait to prepare both shrimp and vegetable tacos myself or what other healthy and delicious combinations I will discover.

Shrimp salad – yes, yes, I make a delicious salad with various vegetables to which I add some shrimp pan-seared with a little oil and my favorite spices.

Delicious pan-seared shrimp sandwiches with garlic and parsley. A culinary delight. I usually prepare them for 2-3 days and keep them wrapped in the fridge. Before I serve the sandwich, I heat it in the oven. Delicious!!!

Shrimp in spicy sauce – I start from the classic recipe of pan-seared prawns with a little butter and garlic to which I also add a bit of spicy red pepper.

Shrimp Curry – oh yes I have developed a curry obsession. Especially since it’s super healthy. I have a superb recipe for super nutritious and tasty Oyster mushroom curry that you must try.

And I think the list can go on forever…

If you know some other recipes with shrimps please share them with me. I love to discover and cook new recipes for my family.
