These pesto coated shrimp skewers pair incredibly well with a light cauliflower mash. When cooked with butter, heavy cream and parmesan, the cauliflower really gets a silky softness. If you’re in the mood to spice things up a little bit, replace the pesto with some aioli sauce!

½ medium cauliflower head
2 tablespoons of butter
¼ cup heavy cream
½ cup parmesan, shredded
parsley, chopped
