This is one of my favorite go-to dinners. It’s simple, yet tasty and a great way to get your shrimp on the dinner table. (I always serve it with a salad and a bread/pasta dish for a complete meal. ) Just throw all your ingredients in a baking dish and pop it in the oven. When the pasta is done, remove the dish from the oven and pour the Alfredo over the top. This Alfredo is very versatile; it can be made with chicken, beef or pork. I make it with shrimp because they are relatively low in fat and high in protein.

Having a lot of ingredients is not always a bad thing, in fact sometimes having a lot of ingredients can be good and this dish is a perfect example. It’s a well balanced meal that everyone loves and it’s made by me, my mom, my sister, and my grandmother. The recipe is inspired by a dish my grandmother used to make for us in Mexico. This is a very easy dish to make that can be a meal on its own but can also be made into a side dish and can be served with chicken or fish. I used this dish to cook for my family for dinner and everyone loved it.

Aromatics such as garlic are a great way to add flavor to any dish, and they are especially useful when cooking a meal in the winter. Garlic provides a rich, robust aroma, and its flavor is very strong. Garlic can be used as a flavoring agent, and it also contains a substance that is beneficial to our body: allicin..

I’m a self-professed seafood connoisseur, having grown up in New England. Every weekend, I’d be at the beach in Maine, eating fresh fish straight off the boat a short distance away. My mother’s cousins run lobster boats, and my family eats seafood almost every time we go out. So it was a huge shift for me when I came to San Francisco. This is another city with a lot of seafood, but the kinds are all different, so I was at a loss at first. Fortunately, basics like shrimp are simple to come by and much easier to prepare. I just prepared a Alfredo Shrimp Fettuccine dish and can’t wait to share it with you!

This Garlicky Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo is made with a creamy alfredo sauce poured over precisely cooked fettuccine and topped with garlic-infused shrimp.

Cooking Instructions for Garlicky Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

In creating my recipe, I experimented with a few things I discovered online, and I picked up a few tips and techniques along the way.

  • You’re making alfredo incorrectly if it’s prepared using cream cheese.
  • Use high grade parmesan and grate it yourself.
  • Not all parmesan is made equal (my first batch seized up because it didn’t melt properly).
  • A clump-preventing ingredient is added to pre-shredded cheese.
  • Use some pasta water to thin a sauce (it contains starch and salt and will have a beautiful effect on the sauce over regular water)
  • For the finest flavor, use freshly ground black pepper.
  • Prepare your garlic using a microplane.

Shrimp Peeling Techniques

While you may purchase peeled and deveined shrimp at the supermarket, you may need to peel your own shrimp on occasion. It’s a simple procedure that takes just a few minutes of your time.

To begin, peel the shrimp from the legs to the tail on the underside. You may stop after the final section that covers the tail’s end. Make a tiny incision in the shrimp lengthwise from the head to the tail with a paring knife. Remove the black vein in the shrimp with the knife. Your shrimp have now been peeled and deveined. This post is an excellent resource with excellent instructive pictures.
