This shrimp recipe is easy, delicious, and healthy! Plus, I can have it on the table in 30 minutes or less. Another bonus – my whole fam loves it!

This is the Wild Argentine Red Shrimp from Zaycon. Good stuff! Every once in a while they offer a promo code so it ends up being an awesome deal on high quality peeled and deveined shrimp. If you sign up for a Zaycon account, they can send you emails about the best deals and promo codes!
Note: The color of your sauce and shrimp may look a little less pink/red if you are not using the Argentine Red Shrimp. Either way, it will be delicious though!
The sauce is nice and simple! I usually use 2% milk, but you can use whole milk or heavy cream instead, if you want. You can even use almond or coconut milk, but you will get a bit of a different flavor in the sauce.
I like to use freshly grated Parmesan cheese in this sauce, not the powdery stuff. Although it would probably work fine in a pinch. 😉
The milk or cream that you use may make a difference in how long it takes to thicken up, so keep an eye on the thickening and just cook until it is about where you want it to be. Of course, the cornstarch slurry really helps move things along too.
Serve over cooked rice, pasta, or veggies. My kids love it with bow tie or penne pasta, but I want to try it with zucchini noodles next!
