Blackened Shrimp Alfredo

Want a great go-to meal when you don't have much time? Check out this Blackened Shrimp Alfredo recipe we tried over the weekend.


  • 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
  • 2 tsp. blackening seasoning
  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp
  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil
  • 8 oz. cut veggies (mushrooms, onions, bell peppers, etc)
  • 8-10 fresh basil leaves, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup sherry
  • 1 (16 oz) jar Alfredo Sauce
  • 1 Tbsp. shredded Parmesan cheese


Preheat large saute pan on high 1-2 minutes. Place both seasonings and shrimp in bag; seal tightly and shake to coat. Add oil to pan; swirl to coat. Arrange shrimp, flat in pan, in single layer; cook 2 minutes without turning.

Add vegetables; rotate shrimp to top. Cover and cook 3-4 minutes, stirring often, until vegetables are tender.

Stir in remaining ingredients (except cheese); cook 1 minute.

Serve over prepared fettuccine. Sprinkle with cheese.
