Served in a fragrant pool, this Shrimp in White Wine and Garlic Sauce is a delightful way to enjoy your favorite seafood. Try serving it alongside pasta and roasted veggies.
A few weeks ago, I made dinner for my young children, Will and Paige. It was something balanced with some meat, veggies, pasta and the like. It was a classic Will and Paige meal: something simple, but tasty, with a healthy-sized serving of pasta.
For me, I quickly whipped up some shrimp encrusted with Romano cheese.
I don’t usually make different meals for the children and me, but I really wanted shrimp.
Will took one look at my plate and requested a taste. Then another taste. Then another. Before I knew it, he’d eaten his food and half of mine.
He had never eaten shrimp before but one single taste left him positively smitten with the meaty little sea-dwellers.
And that, my friends, is how my young son discovered the joy that is shrimp.
This recipe is for another delightful recipe that I’ve been making recently.
A broth is made from butter, garlic and white wine — a rich trio that feels so luxurious in the mouth. Cooked shrimp are simmered in it to warm up. Then it’s ready to serve.
This is a great recipe for those who haven’t made shrimp before but love them, because it’s so low-pressure. Since the shrimp are already cooked, you don’t have to worry about figuring out when they are done. Plus, it’s the epitome of quick and easy cooking.
Shrimp in White Wine and Garlic Sauce is a dish to fall in love with.
Is it terrible that I secretly wished Will wouldn’t finish his serving when I made this recently? Is it even worse that I was disappointed when he cleaned his plate?
It’s true. I was. But this dish is just oh-so-good. Truly.
