Shrimp and Artichoke Recipe

This shrimp and artichoke recipe was something I created one night when I wasn't sure what to cook. It was fabulous! I'll be making it again (on purpose) next time.

shrimp and artichoke plate

Serves 2


  • 1 pound medium size shrimp, shelled, de-veined,and uncooked
  • 8 artichoke hearts (the kind from a jar or can (buy them at Sams Club for best price!)
  • 4 button mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 Tablespoon of minced garlic, or 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon of sour cream
  • parmesan cheese to taste


Put butter and olive oil together in a skillet over medium high heat.

Cook shrimp and garlic together until shrimp becomes opaque and starts to curl.

Cut artichoke hearts in half and add them along with the mushrooms to the pan.

Add cream and sour cream. Salt and pepper to taste. Heat mixture through and shrimp should be cooked completely by now.

Now this next part may sound strange, but I love great food, and wouldn't suggest something that didn't taste great.

I took romaine lettuce and mixed baby greens and spread them on a plate. I used the shrimp to top the greens, and then spooned the creamy mixture left in the pan all over the greens and shrimp! I sprinkled it with a little parmesan cheese, and that's it! It was so easy and very, very good. Another suggestion would be to serve it over steamed cauliflower or broccoli.
