    JustJanS's Note:

    My son is coming for dinner tonight, although he's a fussy eater, this is one of his favourites, so he's chosen it. I sometimes add a sliced chilli to this too.

      Stole this...it is now the family favorite and everyone thinks I am amazing. Not bad considering this is simple to make, gourmet in taste and it takes longer to shell the shrimp than it does to cook it LOL Keys for me are using shrimp that are not shelled/deveined until I am ready to cook them...if you can get fresh...so much the better. But if you have to buy frozen don't buy the pre-cooked. I barely sear the shrimp before adding the wine and cream. Don't want them overcooked and it only takes a couple minutes to get them done. I then remove the shrimp, fire up the heat to thicken the cream sauce, shut it down and pour it over the shrimp. I lay down a bed of angle hair pasta or wild rice and then top it with this creamy garlic shimp and people think I am a 5 star chef! Thanks JustJanS You made me a hero with this one! :)

      I had never cooked shrimp before, so I took this recipe and adjusted it to ingredients on hand. It tasted like a creamy garlic shrimp dish I order at a local restaurant. Yum!

      O'kay scaled this back as 2 serves to serve over a small porterhouse/sirloin steak and well the prawns/shrimp became the star of the show (I served 5 over the steak and the other 3 were to the side of plate) but I devoured the prawns/shrimp and had about a mouthful of the steak. For the prawns though our times were definately different (could be because of sized medium Mandurah [local area] prawns) but sauted off the garlic for the 2 minutes but the prawns only needed less than a minute, poured in the wine and it almost instantly reduced 30 seconds and the added cream and stock and simmer for about 5 minutes and OMG it was so delicious and we just salivated through every bite. Thank you Jan, made for Make My Recipe - Editin 14.
