Step 1

1. Heat oven to 325.

2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the onions and garlic until softened. Add the shrimp; lightly toss, then evenly sprinkle Cajun or Creole seasoning over them. Cook until the shrimp start to turn pink, about 2-4 minutes.

3. Add the whipping cream and stir well. Bring to a low simmer and add the cornstarch/water mix to thicken the sauce. Once the sauce has thickened, remove from heat.

4. Spoon some sauce (without any shrimps) into a greased 9 x 13 baking dish and spread it evenly along the bottom. Fill each tortilla by spooning about 2 tablespoons of the shrimp (and sauce) down the center and roll it. Place each seam-side down in the dish and once filled, ladle more sauce over top.

5. Cover with aluminum foil and bake for 15-20 minutes. Garnish with parsley or cilantro.
