This is one of my families favorite meals and what makes it even better?
Its ready in under 20 minutes!
Delicious seasoned shrimp in a unbelievable cream sauce!
Its such an easy and fantastic recipe, everyone is sure to adore!
One of the best things about this dish is that even if you are not a fan of shrimp, you can also do it just as well with chicken!
I have done chicken with this recipe instead of shrimp and its really the sauce that makes it taste SO good!
So regardless what type of ‘meat’ you do with it,
its always going to be outstanding!
