Creamy Garlic Shrimp

Creamy Garlic Shrimp

Today I present to you one of the recipes with shrimp that I cook most often. From here, you can further improvise some pasta with shrimp and sour cream sauce. They are great with rice or simply with some fresh bread. I cooked the recipe at a few culinary workshops and it was received with lots of praise, so it's been tested on many people, not only the ones at home.

This shrimp recipe with white sauce is very quick and simple. The most complicated is finding the shrimp at a decent price and preferably clean. I usually buy frozen shrimp, per kg, defrost and cook quickly. But when I feel like having something really fine, I play with the fresh shrimp, cleaned by us and definitely bought from stores with permanent delivery.
