“Where I live everyone has their own version of a local favorite " shrimp sauce." Served over angel hair pasta it can be a very elegant dinner. I have several variations to this basic recipe. You can use crawfish tails instead of shrimp. Also you can use a nice white wine instead of evaporated milk. Sometimes I add get the idea!”

  2. Add the shrimp that have been cleaned, deveined, and drained. Season with the salt, pepper, basil,parsley, garlic powder, and cayenne pepper. Cover and continue sauteeing on medium heat for 3 or 4 minutes.The shrimp will release a good amount of water. This is good.
  3. Remove the lid and reduce the heat to medium. Add the cream cheese in cubes. Add the cream of shrimp soup, grated parmesan and evaporated milk. Stir constantly with a wooden spoon until it appears nice and creamy. If it begins to stick you need to reduce the heat a little.
