Melt some butter in a saucepan and add some minced garlic. I use the ready prepared kind as I know I'd never get the pieces that small if I were chopping it myself! Add a chopped tomato, tomato paste, chicken stock, heavy cream and paprika. Bring to the boil and let simmer for 10 minutes until the sauce has thickened.
Then add some raw shrimp (I remove the shells but keep the tails – but of course it is up to you whether you do the same!).
Bring the mixture to a boil again, and cook until the shrimp are done. Check for seasoning then serve, sprinkled with a little extra paprika and some fresh parsley.
