What ingredients will I need for the Shrimp Alfredo Recipe

A basic packet sauce of Alfredo will do from any manufacturer for the sauce base.
30 grams of margarine or butter

15 ml of chopped chives or dried parsley.
half a garlic clove - finely chopped is best
two table spoons of lemon juice.

Lets make Shrimp Alfredo now
- We are going to start with the shrimp preparation first. This is usually best done in advance for added flavour, but any time will do. I usually do it the day before.
- In your sandwich bag, place the shrimps, the yogurt and herb salad dressing and the two table spoons of lemon juice. Seal the bag and give it a shake to coat all the shrimp. Now place the bag in the refridgerator to absorb the mixture for a few hours.
- The pasta should now be cooked according to the instructions on the packet and the alfredo packet sauce prepped and ready to add to the pasta when the pasta is cooked to your liking.
- In the skillet or frying pan, place the margarine and parsley or herbs of your choice and add the finely chopped garlic. Once the margarine starts to melt, add the shrimps without the mixture from the bag. Cook the shrimp in the pan until ready, test one to see that it is to your liking. About 10 - 15 minutes should be okay. Add a table spoon of the bag mixture to moisten the shrimp if the pan dries out quickly and reduce the heat a little.
- The oven option means grilling the shrimps on a piece of grease paper turning the shrimp halfway through to ensure even cooking. This option would be best to add the garlic to the bag mixture and then use a brush to paint the shrimp with the mixture as a basting to maintain moisture.
- The shrimps can now be added to your pasta and alfredo sauce to complete the dish.
This alfredo recipe can be used with bacon, parma ham, chicken or any other seafood that you wish to experiment with.
