Indulge in a sumptuous seafood dish that combines the tender succulence of shrimp with a rich and creamy garlic sauce, all served over a bed of fluffy rice. This recipe promises a gourmet experience that’s surprisingly easy to prepare, making it a perfect choice for a weeknight dinner or a special occasion.



  1. Cook the Rice: Begin by warming a tablespoon of olive oil in a saucepan over a medium flame. Add in chopped onions, diced celery, and minced garlic, letting them soften and become fragrant, which should take roughly 5 minutes.
  2. Next, incorporate the rice, stirring it frequently to ensure each grain becomes nicely toasted, giving this step about 5 minutes as well. Carefully pour in the chicken broth and let the mixture come to a rolling boil. Once boiling, lower the heat, cover the saucepan, and let the rice simmer undisturbed for a quarter of an hour. Remember to keep the lid on throughout the simmering process to ensure perfect rice.
  3. Make the Shrimp: In a separate large pan, melt a knob of butter over a medium setting. Toss in the garlic and stir it around for a minute or two, just until its aroma is released.
  4. Now, it’s time to add the shrimp to the pan, along with a squeeze of fresh lemon juice, a splash of sherry, and a few drops of your favorite hot sauce. Let the shrimp cook until they adopt a pink hue, which should take about 2 to 3 minutes. Pour in the cream, warming it with the shrimp but taking care not to let it come to a full boil. Add salt and pepper to your liking.
  5. To Serve: Ladle the creamy shrimp over the bed of prepared rice. Finish off with a dusting of paprika for color and flavor before presenting the dish.


  • – Adjust the amount of garlic to suit your taste preferences.
    – Ensure shrimp are not overcooked to maintain their tenderness.
    – The sauce can be made ahead of time and gently reheated before adding the shrimp.
    – For a lighter version, substitute heavy cream with half-and-half or a mixture of milk and cornstarch.
