Camarones a la Crema (Shrimps in Cream)

I love shrimps. Thankfully nobody in our family is allergic to shrimps. This is one of the dishes we prepare when the shrimp craving comes. It's easy to cook and it doesn't require too many ingredients. This is perfect to pair with rice, a staple food item in Asia. It can also be paired with pasta.




















Ingredients:

half kilo medium-sized shrimps, shelled and deveined
2 Tbps butter
4 garlic cloves, minced
½ tsp salt
1/2 parsley, chopped
½ cup heavy cream, warmed

Heat the heavy skillet to a high temperature.
Melt the butter on a skillet and saute the garlic until slightly golden.
Add the shrimps and continue stirring until the color changes.
Add salt and parsley and continue stirring.
Pour in the cream and remove from heat on the first sign of boiling.
Serve immediately.

The cooking time must not be longer than 5 minutes.
