Mara’s Shrimp Alfredo

*Shrimp, peeled and de-veined
*Olive oil
*Garlic, three cloves crushed
*Red onion, chopped (about half a small-sized onion)
*Orange (or lemon)
*Dry white wine (or Sherry)
*Heavy cream
*Parmesan cheese, fresh grated
*Fresh basil
*Salt & Pepper

Put a few tablespoons of olive oil in a frying pan over medium-high heat.

Once the pan is nice and hot, add garlic, onions and shrimp.

Cook, constantly stirring until onion and garlic browns slightly.

Throw in a splash of white wine to deglaze pan.

Cook until shrimp are almost cooked, and deglaze the pan again with a squeeze of juice from the orange.

Let get hot again and add cream to pan.

Stir in cheese until sauce is thick, but not gooey.

Top with fresh basil and salt and pepper to taste.
