A delicious shrimp dish that quickly comes together and is even special enough for company.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook linguine for about 9 minutes until al dente. Drain and reserve 1 cup of the cooking water. Set aside.
While the pasta is cooking, peel and devein the shrimp and place in a colander to drain.
In a large skillet over medium heat, add the butter and olive oil. When the butter has melted, add the diced onion (or shallots), garlic, oregano and red pepper flakes. Saute for a couple of minutes until onion is beginning to soften. Add the shrimp and continue cooking for 5-6 minutes until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through.
Add the cooked pasta into the skillet along with the lemon juice, Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper. Pour in some of the pasta water until desired consistency is reached (I used about 1/3 cup). Mix well and cook another minute until warmed through. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Place some pasta on a plate and top with shrimp, garnish with fresh parsley or basil. Enjoy!
Note: We like things a little spicy. This dish was not overly spicy to us, but it does have a kick. I would start with only about 1/4 teaspoon of the red pepper flakes if that is a concern, or just leave them out all together. Either way it is delicious.
Flavorful, spicy blackened salmon tacos topped with fresh avocado corn salsa and tangy cilantro ranch dressing made with Greek yogurt. A delicious way to enjoy salmon.
Shrimp (“camarones” in Spanish) are one of my favorite foods to cook. This easy to make relleno sauce complements the shrimp well and goes great with a Lowcountry favorite—rice! The ingredients are items found in most pantries so give this a whirl for a little “South of The Border” flavor.
A delicious Tex-Mex alternative to crab cakes!
