Author Notes: I love seafood - and especially enjoy a little bit of tanginess, some creaminess and spice! This recipe was a creation for a Sunday evening when I wanted something tasty and comforting, yet still fresh. Add more red pepper flakes depending on your preference. - aussiefoodie
- 3 garlic cloves
- 1 red onion, sliced
- 3 tablespoons dill butter
- 1 cup cherry tomatoes

- 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 2 tablespoons chopped parsley
- 1/2 cup cream
