Shrimply Irresistible

If I had you at shrimp, then the butter and
cream will cinch the deal. 
I came up with this recipe years ago using
ingredient combinations from 2 other chicken 
recipes. What could go wrong with shrimp,
butter, cream, and a few basic seasonings?
It was a winner and it’s so simple. 

Heat the 3 T butter in a pan. Pat the shelled
shrimp. Dry with a paper towel.

When the pan is nice and hot add the shrimp.
Give them a generous seasoning of garlic salt
 and pepper.

Cook until just opaque, turn once. Remove
the shrimp to a plate.

Saute the onions until tender.

This is the main seasoning-chili powder.
Many people can’t quite guess what’s in it and
 are surprised to find out it’s simply chili powder.

Add that to the onions and give it a stir.

Now add the ½ pt. cream. Stir to blend.

Return the shrimp to the pan and toss in
the cream sauce to coat. Remove from heat.

I think that took only 10 minutes.
As always, it’s important not to overcook
the shrimp or they will toughen.

I serve this over rice and add a green vegetable,
salad and sometimes if I want to make the dinner
 special I’ll make my popovers to go along with it.
If you do that start the popovers first.
I have also made crescent rolls from the
 tube. They are nice too.

Divide among warm plates and serve with
lots of the sauce.

If you’re a shrimp lover like we are I know
you’ll love this, and it couldn’t be easier!
I said it serves 3 because 4 is too stingy.
You can easily double the recipe to serve 6.
I make this recipe for the two of us and
sometimes have enough left over for a snack.
