Need a super simple, quick, Chef’s quality dinner for a busy day to serve your guests? You can have this Garlic Butter Tuscan Shrimp in Creamy Wine Sauce on the table in under 30 minutes and it’s packed with my favorite Italian flavors!
This Creamy Dreamy Garlic Butter Tuscan Shrimp is so crave-worthy! With just a little twist on the copy-cat version from Olive Garden.
Not everyone loves of sun-dried tomatoes and for some people, they have a high sodium content. So I thought we’d try Fire Roasted Red Bell Peppers, since I love bell peppers in any form anyway. I also crave all things shrimp, so this is right up there with one of my all time favorite dishes.
Plus you get to have wine in your dinner as well as with your dinner, so this makes for a perfect date night at home that’s also not going to kill your budget. Because, if you are ordering this with wine at a restaurant, it’s going to set you back way more than what you’d spend to make it at home. And with the holidays quickly approaching, those extra bucks are going to be needed under the tree and on the holiday table.
This recipe can easily be doubled for entertaining guests and if you’re looking for a nice dessert that pairs well with seafood, you could try my Salted Caramel Banana Bread Pudding, or for something a little more fancy, Pastry Wrapped Pears with Cranberries and Brie; sounds complicated, but it’s really easy.
