Description

Pasta, linguine, seafood, scampi, prawns, shrimp, and garlic.

Ingredients

  • ½ pounds Linguine
  • ½ pounds Large Shrimp, Cleaned And Peeled
  • 2 Tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 2 Tablespoons Fresh Garlic, Minced Finely
  • ½ teaspoons Dried Chili Flakes
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon Zest
  • ¼ cups Fresh Lemon Juice
  • ¼ cups Fresh Parsley, Chopped
  • Kosher Salt And Pepper To Taste
  • Lemon Slices Or Parsley Springs For Garnish (optional)

Preparation

Cook linguine according to the directions on the package, reserving a few tablespoons of the starchy pasta water.

Season shrimp with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, melt butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add garlic and chili flakes and sauté for 2 minutes. Add shrimp and lemon zest. Cook shrimp on both sides until they turn pink, approximately 1–2 minutes on each side. Add lemon juice and parsley. Toss in cooked linguine, adding a tablespoon at a time of the pasta water until you reach desired consistency. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with additional lemon slices or parsley springs.

Note: If you would like a more saucy pasta dish, remove shrimp from skillet once they have turned pink. Add in 1/2 cup white wine and turn the heat to medium-high. Reduce the liquids for 4-5 minutes. Return shrimp to the pan and follow the rest of the recipe.

I made this dish tonight for dinner, and it is excellent. So good in fact, that it prompted me to write my first review. I highly recommend this dish if you are looking for something delicious in a hurry. I added a half cup white wine. We enjoyed it thoroughly, and will definitely make it again.
