Introduction

This is a YUMMY low carb recipe from one of my favorite restaurants. Perfect for Atkins. Not so good if you're following a low fat diet, tho. This is a YUMMY low carb recipe from one of my favorite restaurants. Perfect for Atkins. Not so good if you're following a low fat diet, tho.

Ingredients

    6 large or jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

Preheat the oven to 425 degrees. In a small saute pan, combine shrimp, cream,

garlic, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook over medium heat until shrimp start to turn pink,

baking dish. Bake until done, 6 to 7 minutes. Meanwhile, boil the cream mixture until

reduced by half. Remove from heat; let stand for 2 minutes.

Pour sauce onto a serving plate. Remove shrimp from the oven; stand shrimp, tails up,
