Cooking shrimp stewed in cream:

Step 1: Defrost and prepare the shrimp.

Place the bag of frozen shrimp in a closed form in a deep bowl, and cover with cold water. Shrimp thaw for 10 to 15 minutes. Do not thaw this type of seafood without a bag, as during thawing, shrimp can accumulate excess fluid. Rinse thawed shrimp, transfer to a colander and rinse under running water from any contaminants for 1 minute. Then let the water drain and transfer them to a deep plate. Now there are 2 options for preparing shrimp, you can pickle and stew in shell or clean them from the head and shell, leaving only the tails. You can also clean the shrimp completely leaving one meat. I prefer the last 2 options, but if you are preparing a romantic dinner, the first option is perfect.

Step 2: Marinate and saute the shrimp.

Peeled shrimps put in a bowl, add salt, ground black, white and allspice to taste to taste. Let the shrimp lie in spices and salt for 10 minutes. While seafood is pickled, put on a stove included in the middle level, pan and heat it. After it warms up, put the butter in it and melt it. Then put the shrimp in the melted fat with a tablespoon. Fry them for 1 to 2 minutes, stirring vigorously with a wooden spatula.

Step 3: Stew the shrimps in cream and prepare the greens.

Add cream to the fried shrimp, mix all the ingredients with a spatula so that the fat and cream are mixed into a homogeneous mass, and screw the plate to a small level. Cover the pan and simmer the shrimp in cream for 10 to 15 minutes, periodically opening the lid and stirring the ingredients with a wooden spatula to prevent the shrimp from sticking to the bottom of the pan. While the shrimps are being stewed, prepare the greens, rinse the dill under running water, shake the excess liquid over the sink, lay on a cutting board, chop finely with a knife and leave the greens to lie on the cutting board. The prepared shrimp should be soft in texture, taste sweet - salty with a slight acidity and pungency that gave them black pepper. Put the prepared shrimps in a slide on a plate, pour the sauce remaining in the pan and sprinkle with dill chopped greens.

Step 4: Serve the prawns stewed in cream.

Stewed shrimps in cream served warmly laid in a slide on a plate, doused with stewed cream and sprinkled with dill. Such a dish can be decorated with slices or rings of lemon, and boiled rice with spices or pilaf with seafood served on the side dish. Under the glass of sake, your dinner party or romantic meeting in combination with this dish will be perfect! Enjoy your meal!

- - Sometimes garlic stewed in cream is added to the shrimp, it is fried in butter and after that it is added to the shrimp fat. - You can add any spices you like to this dish, but remember that a large number of them can interrupt the aroma and taste of shrimp and cream. - Stewed cream prawns can be cooked not only in a pan, but also in a saucepan or a small saucepan with a double bottom. - To make cream sauce sweeter for a given amount of ingredients, you can add 1 teaspoon of paprika. But remember that such a sauce will not be white, it will be painted in a beautiful cream - brown color with a red tint.
