SHRIMP IN ROASTED PEPPER SAUCE

SHRIMP IN ROASTED PEPPER SAUCE
This Shrimp in Roasted Pepper Sauce is lip-smacking good! Roasted bell pepper paired with cream and Parmesan cheese create a unique and delicious sauce. 
This recipe is my #1 favorite way to eat shrimp. All of the ingredients pair perfectly together, and the sauce is so rich and flavorful. This Shrimp with Roasted Pepper Sauce could be enjoyed with pasta, over rice, or just as is. Dip a slice of fresh and crunchy bread in the sauce and reach nirvana! 🙂
WHAT KIND OF SHRIMP TO USE
Raw, medium-sized, tail on, deveined shrimp would be the best fit for this recipe. I like to have the tails on because during cooking the shells add extra flavor to the dish. If you prefer, you can use fully peeled shrimp instead.
ROASTED PEPPERS
You’ll need roasted peppers to make the sauce. You can use store bought or homemade roasted peppers. Most of the time, I just buy them from the store. You can find roasted peppers in many large supermarkets. They are usually found in the section where jarred olives, capers, mushrooms, etc. are sold. I prefer 12-16 oz. jars so that there are no leftovers. Of course, you can buy roasted peppers from Amazon. I like these Cento Red and Yellow Fire Roasted Peppers.
SHRIMP IN ROASTED PEPPER SAUCE INGREDIENTS: 
  • 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 & Half (or heavy cream)
  • 3/4 cup Parmesan cheese, shredded
  • salt, to taste
  • chopped parsley, to garnish
INSTRUCTIONS: 

  1. Place the roasted peppers with the liquid from the jar in a blender or smoothie cup and process until smooth.
  2. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp, paprika, and red pepper flakes. Cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Turn the heat to low and add garlic and salt. Cook for 1 minute and remove the shrimp from the skillet.
  4. 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.
  5. Add the Half & Half and Parmesan. Stir and bring to a gentle simmer.
  6. Return the shrimp 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.
WHAT TO SERVE SHRIMP IN ROASTED PEPPER SAUCE WITH
One of my favorite ways to serve this dish is to add pasta and mix it all together. It also tastes great with rice, steamed veggies, couscous, polenta, or mashed potatoes.
