Quick & Easy! This uses the same sauce I made for my "Easy Cheesy Creamed Spinach & Garlic", but without the Parmesan. I served this with Asian-style vegetables and Roasted Red Potatoes.

Remove the tails & serve with crackers and this makes a very tasty appetizer!!

Stove Top

Ingredients

4 Tbsp
butter
3 Tbsp

2-3 Tbsp
garlic powder (add more if you want a strong garlic flavor)

milk (more or less to get the right consistency)

evaporated milk **
1 1/2 lb
shrimp, cooked, peeled and deveined
fresh parsley for garnish

Step-By-Step

1In a small saucepan over Medium heat, melt butter.
2Add flour. Adjust amount, if needed, to make a rue.
3Add garlic. Whisk until smooth.
4** Add milks, pouring slowly while whisking to avoid lumps. (You can use more or less of each kind of milk to suit your taste. I like to add some Evap. milk to the regular to add creaminess.)
