  • 6 slices bacon chopped
  • 1 medium turnip cut into 1/2-inch cubes
  • 1/2 cup onion chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic minced

  3. Stir in the cream and the shrimp and simmer until the shrimp is pink and cooked through, another 3 minutes or so. Add the Cajun seasoning and season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Garnish with the bacon and chopped parsley upon serving.
