-2/3 cup cream or coconut cream

Method:

  1. First, make sure your shrimp is peeled and thawed out. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Slice all of your veggies. If you want more flavor to the dish, lightly brown (dry sautée) your onion in the pan (until fragrant) first. Lightly oil or grease your pan and layer the rest of the veggies evenly into the baking dish or pan (casserole dish or cast iron dish). Place Shrimp on top or mixed within the veggie layers.
  3. In a small bowl, mix your cream, garlic, egg, starch, and butter or oil. Whisk together until smooth yellow mixture is formed.
  4. Pour this evenly over your shrimp and veggie dish. Sprinkle your sea salt and black pepper over casserole dish followed by your grated parmesan, evenly.
  5. Garnish with red pepper flakes.
  6. Place in oven and bake at 350 F for 35-45 minutes. Make sure that your shrimp are cooked and your veggies are nice and tender. Check at 25-30 minutes to see progress. The shrimp will shrink while cooking.

8) Once cooked, remove and more sea salt, pepper, cilantro on top! Feel free to season with additional chili flakes as well.
