Creating a recipe using only six-ingredients was more of a challenge than I had originally thought. I did quite a bit of reading, researching, and testing. Plus, coming off of carpal tunnel surgery last Friday on my dominant left hand made cooking, especially chopping more of a challenge.
I have to tell you that creating this shrimp dish really pushed me to get outside of my Cajun "comfort zone". On our stay-at-home date night last night, A.J. and I were thrilled to enjoy this dish together. Although it's cheesy, it is amazingly light and didn't weigh us down. The cream cheese gave the sauce a nice luxurious texture, while the Feta cheese combined with the garlic and chives, gave the sauce a tart pop that put it over the top. Try this on your date night with your sweetie or just indulge yourself because you deserve it baby!
