Lemon Garlic Shrimp With Creamy Polenta

Jumbo garlic lemon shrimp served over creamy, parmesan polenta is ready in just 30 minutes. It’s a restaurant caliber dish inspired by the flavors of Northern-Italy that’s perfect for busy weeknights or for entertaining guests. It’s soul-warming Italian comfort food at its best…and so easy to make!

The combination of these perfectly cooked shrimp in a wine pan sauce with salty prosciutto is perfectly paired with the creamy tangy polenta.

Shrimp recipes are always a win for a easy dinners since they only take a couple of minutes to cook. When combined with the cheesy soft polenta it’s a perfect meal. It’s a simple recipe that’s so good!

If you’ve never made polenta it’s an Italian dish made with boiled cornmeal. It can be made into a porridge consistency or made into a loaf and pan fried or grilled.

The version we are serving with these savory shrimp is a creamy texture bursting with delicious flavors of parmesan cheese, sour cream and butter. It’s a perfect stand alone dish and great with these garlicky shrimp.
