This Shrimp in Roasted Pepper Sauce is lip smacking good! Sweet roasted bell pepper paired with cream and Parmesan cheese create a very unique and delicious sauce.
- 1 lb. peeled deveined shrimps
- 3 tbsp. butter
- 1/2 tbsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. red pepper flakes optional
- 2 garlic cloves
- 12 oz. jar of roasted peppers
- 3/4 cup Half and Half or heavy cream
- 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese shredded
- salt to taste
- chopped parsley to garnish
Place the roasted peppers together with the liquid from the jar into a blender or smoothie cup and process until smooth.
In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the shrimps, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 5 minutes.
Turn the heat to low and add garlic and salt. Cook for 1 minute and remove the shrimps from the skillet.
To the same skillet, add the roasted pepper puree. Turn the heat to medium and cook it for about 7-10 minutes, until most of the liquid evaporates.
Add the Half & Half and Parmesan. Stir and bring to a gentle simmer.
Return the shrimps to the skillet. Mix everything well and cook for 1-2 minutes, just to heat the shrimp back up. Garnish with chopped parsley and Parmesan.
