What Kalissa is Making: Creole Lemon-Butter Shrimp

Several times in conversation here at my house, the Friedman family (that’s my daughter Kalissa’s family) might make a comment like, “What do you want me to make for supper tonight?” Carver immediately always asks for Shrimp Pasta. It’s my grandson Carver’s favorite. Teasingly I said to Kalissa that she hadn’t made that for me yet.

For the record, their family calls it Shrimp Pasta. The real name is Creole Lemon-Butter Shrimp.

Well, recently she delivered. Here it is in the little Pyrex bowl. I had already eaten supper so I had it the next night. WOW. It’s so good. It was just fine warmed up.

I loved it. I plan to make it for myself.

As I said, Carver loves it. This year as a class fundraiser project, Kalissa helped put together a classroom cookbook. Carver submitted this as his entry. There he is the cute little chef’s hat.

Here’s the recipe so you can read it:

1.5 lbs. frozen, peeled, deveined, shrimp thawed
1 Tbsp. Creole seasoning
2 Tbsp. Olive Oil
1/4 cup butter
1 tsp. lemon zest
3 Tbsp. lemon juice
1/4 cup parsley
1 16-ounce carton heavy whipping cream
1/4 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 package of pasta noodles.

Pat shrimp dry, and sprinkle with Creole seasoning. Cook shrimp over medium heat until shrimp turn pink. Keep them warm.

Melt butter in a skillet over medium heat, add lemon zest, juice, and parsley. Cook for one minute.

Gradually whisk in cream, bring to a simmer, and cook for 5-6 minutes or until reduced by one-fourth.

Add parmesan cheese, stir until melted, and add cooked shrimp.

Server over your choice of pasta noodles.

It’s easy…and delicious.

Thanks so much, Kalissa for sharing the recipe. YUM!! I’m off to put some of the ingredients I don’t have on my grocery list.

This does not have a big spicy flavor or a lemony flavor. It’s just perfect.
