Shrimp with Bacon and Cream

shrimp with bacon

Really easy, really quick and really tasty recipe. Lilia Voronin (the author of elfkitchen blog) on how to cook the perfect shrimp with bacon and cream.

I was firmly set in my tastes and beliefs before. I adored shrimp with olive oil, tons of garlic and greenery. Using soft cheese as a dip to boot. But everything – shrimp included – tastes better with bacon and cream. So I came up with this recipe for you shrimp with bacon and cream.

Also, there’s some perfect and long-awaited freedom in that – I find a bit of happiness in the fact that keto and carnivore lifestyle allows you to eat shrimp without any kinds of garnish! Forget about that less-than-tasty nonsense to your creamy seafood goodness. Just take a spoon, eat it and be happy!

        Sour cream will add a little sourness to the dish. If you use cream, the flavor is softer.
