Hey friends! So many of you ask for recipes with starch alternatives, and in this post I have the perfect recipe for you! We’ll be making Garlic Butter Shrimp Over Alexia Butternut Squash Risotto! This recipe is simply amazing and it takes less than 20 minutes to make.
So for all of you that are wondering – YES, this recipe was inspired by the southern favorite “Shrimp & Grits”. I simply used Alexia Butternut Squash Risotto instead of grits. We all know that grits can take a lot of time to cook. So not only does this rissota have less starch, it quicker( and easier) to make. Oh, and did I mentioned that Alexia Butternut Squash Rissota is non-GMO Project Vertified & gluten free? Also this premium side dish doesn’t need any “jazzing up”. It’s ready to cook right out of the bag! I was able to prep this amazing meal for my family in under 20 minutes! This is definitely one of those delicious quick & easy recipes that you can make during the busy work week – or any other time!
I used cooked jumbo shrimp for this recipe. I leave the tails on, then toss the shrimp in a easy homemade garlic sauce butter. The garlic butter is made with salted butter, dehydrated minced garlic, coarse black pepper, and parsley flakes. All of the ingredients for the garlic butter are toss into a small sauce pan, then placed over low heat, once everything is melted and combined
