Shrimp & Mushrooms in Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce

I’ve been keeping busy for the last few days with projects outside of the kitchen. While it’s been kind of nice not to have to devote a lot of time to cooking I miss the meals. So last night I decided to pull my apron back on and make Shrimp & Mushrooms in Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce. It’s a delicious meal full of hearty flavors that will satisfy any “real meal” cravings!

Even on the nights when I want a really satisfying meal I can’t always commit to spending a lot of time cooking. I love Shrimp & Mushrooms in Lemon Garlic Cream Sauce because there’s not a lot of prep work needed.

I minced a couple of cloves of garlic. Then I measure out the ingredients for my lemon cream sauce. I use 1 cup of chicken broth, 3 tablespoons lemon juice, and 1 cup heavy cream.

Next I melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a saucepan and add the chicken broth. I bring this to a boil and then reduce the heat and simmer it until it’s reduced a bit (not quite half).

When the broth has reduced I add the heavy cream and lemon juice and increase the heat to medium. I cook the lemon creams sauce, stirring frequently, until it’s thickened.

While the lemon cream sauce is cooking I melt another tablespoon of butter in a small skillet. I add the mushrooms and let them cook over medium heat for about 4 minutes.

When the mushrooms are just starting to caramelize I add the shrimp and let them cook for about 2 minutes. Then I add minced garlic and cook it until the shrimp is pink and the garlic is fragrant.
