There’s an old proverb which says that says in order for shrimp to taste right, it must swim three times – once in water, once in butter, once and in wine. And that’s just what we’re using here along with garlic, peppers and cream to turn up the tasty!

- Hey everybody, I'm Joey and today we're going from land to sea with these creamy garlic shrimp. Now follow me and let's turn up the tasty. ♪ This is how we get it done ♪ ♪ This is how we do it, do it ♪ ♪ This is how we get it done ♪ There's an old proverb which says that in order for fish to taste just right, it must swim three times. Once in water, once in butter, and once in wine. My favorite. Well, that's just what we're gonna show you today so let's go ahead and get started. We are cooking with shrimp today so obviously we're gonna need some shrimp, as they're commonly called in the U.S. Other countries like the U.K. and Australia commonly refer to these tasty, delectable little meat morsels as prawns. And, yeah, there are some differences but they're really very similar in both appearance and taste. Interestingly, whether you call 'em shrimp or prawns, largely just depends on where ya live. I prefer larger shrimp but really, any size shrimp will do for this dish and I already have them peeled and deveined. About 20 ounces of shrimp here. So, some people leave the tails on for presentation but I really prefer to remove them prior to cooking. If it's in my food and I can't eat it, I don't want it there. Also, make sure the shrimp are as dry as possible and you can use paper towels or lightly press on them in a colander to remove all the water. Also, we're gonna need some bell peppers. Man, look at this bell pepper. Gorgeous, great in a variety of dishes. Green, yellow, red, orange bell peppers are all really easy to find and they're a terrific match for this dish. Simply remove the seeds, chop 'em up, and these peppers become like little flavor fireworks inside your mouth. I'm using one cup for this recipe and as you can see, I'm using a variety of colors. I just think it looks really pretty. You can also turn up the tasty by adding a spicy pepper like poblano, serrano, or even jalapeno. Over here we have some chopped garlic, around three tablespoons. Some chopped white onion, about a half a cup, also some chopped parsley. This is to really finish the dish. Sliced lemon, some white wine and three tablespoons of butter. All necessary to cook, oh, I forgot the olive oil and some salt, pepper, and paprika to season it up as we cook. So follow me and let's get cookin'. All right, first thing we're gonna need to get cooking is we're just gonna add about a tablespoon of olive oil and one of our three tablespoons of butter. We're gonna let that get nice and hot so it really starts to come up to a bubble. We're just gonna go ahead and throw that garlic in there to let that awesome flavor, those awesome aromatics, really bleed into this butter and olive oil. Now we recently got a comment on our YouTube channel, something along the lines of that's a really cool fake smoke effect. I wanna let everyone at home know we don't have the budget or resources for fake smoke. All the smoke, all the steam that you're gonna see in these videos are 100% real, actual, live smoke and steam. Just wanted to clear that up. Now that's bubbling up. Let's go ahead and get these tasty little meat morsels right in here. Or as I call 'em, chicken of the sea. You're gonna wanna let those spread out so they all kinda get a nice sear. You don't want 'em stacked on top of one another. Go ahead and spread those out, give 'em some room. And we're just gonna let these cook here for about two minutes. While they're cooking, we're just gonna season 'em with a little bit of salt. Little bit of pepper. And, as I said, a little bit of paprika. Now here's some of that real smoke, some of that real steam, coming up from the pan as it cooks. What you can't tell at home is that these are also real smells. We're not using any fake smells in our videos. They're all 100% real. I can see that these are just about done so now we're gonna go ahead and get 'em outta the pan and onto this plate so we can move on to the next part which is a really amazing garlic cream sauce. Here we go. We're gonna add two tablespoons of butter. Now, I don't know if you guys can see it at home but we have some of those bits of shrimp which are stuck to the bottom of this pan. That's truly, those crunchy bits are truly the basis of every great sauce. We're gonna let this butter melt but while that's getting nice and hot, we're gonna add our remaining two tablespoons of garlic. There ya go. All right, next we're gonna add the onions. 'Bout a half a cup. And a cup of peppers right here. We're gonna allow this to cook for about two minutes until those onions and peppers get just a little bit soft. While this sauce is getting goin', it's gonna take probably six or seven minutes. One of the hardest parts of it is not eating these tasty shrimp which are begging to be put right inside my mouth hole. I can't wait. Hopefully we'll have some sauce with some shrimp in it by the time this is ready. Look, no matter where you're at in the world, bell peppers and their relatives are extremely easy to find. They're grown by nearly every single country in the world. They help build a flavor profile for so many different types of dishes. We've featured peppers in another recipe we have coming out soon. It's actually a stuffed pepper using pulled pork. Take a look for it on YouTube. It will be out soon. All right, so this has been cooking for about two minutes. Now it's time to add the wine. We're gonna get our spoon and we're gonna make sure we get all those crusty bits off that's stuck to the bottom of the pan, that's where a lot of the flavor comes from in this dish or any sauce as it cooks. We're gonna let this cook for about two minutes, let some of that alcohol burn off, all right? Now this is really important, because we're losing so much alcohol as this cooks, it's important to get it back, so I suggest you pour yourself a glass of wine as it cooks and remember, consuming at least two glasses per day greatly reduces your chance of giving a shit. I suggest you give it a try. Works out well. All right, so right before we add the cream, we're just gonna add a couple tablespoons of lemon here. I've already removed all the seeds, almost all the seeds. Give that a shake. All right, now, we're gonna add cream. And we're gonna let this boil for about another two to three minutes, just let that really reduce, thicken up the cream sauce. All right, so now how will you know when your sauce is done? Well, simply put, once it sticks to the back of that spoon, look at that. You know it's done now so let's add these shrimp back in. We're reintroducing just a little bit of new liquid from the shrimp. So we're just gonna go ahead and stir these up. Gonna throw in some parsley. Give it a little bit more color. All right, now that this is done, it's ready to serve. It pairs really well with rice or pasta. It also pairs really well with a glass of wine but really, what doesn't?

I'll see ya next time. Fantastic.

Dinner is complete with Creamy Garlic Shrimp

I can eat my creamy garlic shrimp every day. It’s perfectly paired with a glass of white wine. You can serve it over a bed of rice or by itself. It actually makes a great side dish when serving a juicy filet mignon or New York Strip Steak. Creamy garlic shrimp can be the entree or an extravagant side dish.
