Shrimp Alfredo Recipe - surprisingly easy and comforting spaghetti dinner in a creamy, garlicky, rich homemade alfredo sauce tossed with Cajun-seasoned juicy shrimp. Delicious dinner in 30 minutes!
Heat up a skillet with 2 tablespoons of oil, then add shrimp and let it rest for 30 seconds before flipping. Add Cajun seasoning, salt, and pepper to taste. Cook for 4-5 minutes, making sure to flip to cook each side evenly until fully cooked. Set aside.
Heat up skillet or saucepan on medium heat then add butter to the pan followed by garlic, thyme and Italian seasoning. Saute for about 1-2 minutes, or just until garlic is soft and fragrant.
Turn down the heat to medium-low. Whisk in cream and milk, then add cream cheese while continuing to whisk, until thoroughly blended.
Add parmesan cheese and continue to whisk until smooth. Reduce heat to a simmer, then season with salt and pepper to taste.
Continue to simmer for about 3-4 minutes until the sauce starts to thicken. Turn off heat and toss with pasta and shrimp to serve immediately. Or let it cool then store in the fridge until ready to be used.
