Shrimp in a Garlic Cream Sauce

This was so easy and so good!  My hubs, whose usual response to my meals is a generic "It's good" actually said "Wow, this is great!".  That type of response doesn't happen too often.  This sauce reminded me a bit of a thick Alfredo sauce.  I would recommend serving over pasta for the carb eaters (or even low carb Dreamfields pasta if you are in Maintenance mode of your weight loss journey).  I enjoyed it just how it is though.  So easy with just a few ingredients too!  I will definitely be making this one again. *INDUCTION FRIENDLY*

3 servings (it's very rich so you don't need tons)
2 net carbs per serving

12oz medium (41-60) shrimp, peeled and tails removed
2 TBSP salted butter (margarine is a no-no with low carbing)
5 wedges of Laughing Cow garlic & herb spread
1/4 cup heavy cream
sprinkling of fresh or dried parsley

Melt butter in a large sauce pan.  Add shrimp and cook 2-3 minutes per side until barely pink.  Add the wedges of spread and stir until melted.  It will look a bit curdled and chunky.  Add the heavy cream.  Mix together and a creamy sauce will form.  Remove from heat and sprinkle with parsley.
