Shrimp Alfredo

Shrimp Alfredo is a unforgettable dish of tender fettuccini and succulent shrimp tossed in a rich and creamy alfredo sauce made from scratch. It is a quick and easy seafood pasta that anyone can make!

Shrimp Alfredo is one of those dishes that I see on a menu and just have to order, and few years ago I decided that I needed to learn to make it myself.

I had always assumed it would be difficult but I was totally wrong. Shrimp Alfredo is not only easy to make it takes less than 30 minutes!

How do you make the Best Shrimp Alfredo?

You can make seafood pasta with a red sauce, but what makes this dish stand out is the rich, creamy, Alfredo sauce.

It’s a white sauce made with a combination of butter, cream, garlic, Parmesan, and just a pinch of nutmeg.

Sounds pretty awesome right? The best part is it only takes about 15 minutes to make. That’s faster than you could heat up a jar of the store bought stuff and making it from scratch is so much better!

Once your sauce is ready you add your pasta, and some big, beautiful, perfectly cooked shrimp to it and toss everything together.

That cheesy, buttery, creamy Alfredo sauce coats everything in the most amazing way and dinner is served.

Helpful Tips to make Shrimp Alfredo:

  • Use a flat pasta such as fettuccine or linguine for a rich, creamy sauce like Alfredo. The thin, flat, noodle is able to handle the weight of the sauce, and it gives you more surface area for that delicious Alfredo sauce to cling to!
  • Don’t overcook your shrimp! This is a quick and easy recipe and that is partly because shrimp only takes a few minutes to be fully cooked. Add a little butter to your pan, toss in your shrimp, and cook them for about 2 minutes on each side or until they are fully pink. Then they are ready to eat!
  • Don’t skip the heavy cream. I know it might be tempting to substitute something lighter but the heavy cream is part of what gives this sauce its rich flavor and velvety texture.

    What you will need to make Shrimp Alfredo:

    • Deep Saute Pan You’ll want a deep pan for Shrimp Alfredo so you can make your sauce and then add the pasta to it and toss. This is one is big enough to do the job!
    • Colander - This awesome colander makes it so easy to drain the water from your pasta!

    With love from our simple kitchen to yours.
