                Quick & Easy Shrimp Alfredo
  • 1/4 cup Butter or margarine
  • 1/4 cup Flour
  • 4 cups Half-and-half (heavy cream If you REALLY feel wicked)
  • 1 cup (or more to Taste) grated Parmesan Cheese
  • Salt and white pepper to Taste
  • Few grains cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 lb Gulf Shrimp

Boil the shrimp until they turn pink. (DO NOT OVERCOOK). Peel and set aside.  Melt the butter in a saucepan. Stir in the flour, and cook briefly until the mixture looks sandy. Do NOT let it color. Wisk in the half-and-half, and stir until the mixture forms a thick sauce. Stir in the cheese, and season to taste. Simmer for a few minutes to blend the flavors, and stir in the shrimp. Cook JUST until the shrimp is heated through. Serve over cooked linguini, with additional Parmesan cheese and hot red pepper flakes on the side.  YUM This isn't a classic Alfredo, but it is a very good dish, and remarkably easy to make. This may be varied by substitute cooked lobster meat for the shrimp.
