There are just nine ingredients used in this creamy shrimp Alfredo recipe. The recipe as written makes enough for four large servings. If you want to make more, use an extra-large pan and double the recipe.
Even though this shrimp Alfredo calls for simple ingredients, it packs in major flavor. Don’t be afraid to add lots of salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Parmesan cheese also gives this recipe an umami punch. Umami is a category of taste — just like sweet, sour, salt and bitter — that is typically described as the savory taste. To get more technical, umami corresponds to glutamate, a type of amino acid present in many foods such as meat, cheese, and various veggies.
