garlic shrimp linguine

I love seafood, but don't cook with it often (SOMEone in the family isn't a big fan). But when David said he was kind of in the mood for shrimp, I was all over it. We made this together, tweaking a recipe we found on allrecipes.com. This is our version.



GARLIC SHRIMP LINGUINE

1 lb. uncooked linguine
3 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. olive oil
6 Tbsp. cooking white wine
1/3 c. heavy whipping cream
4 tsp. grated Parmesan cheese
6 cloves garlic, minced
3 tsp. chopped fresh parsley
salt & pepper to taste
1 lb. medium shrimp, peeled & deveined

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8-10 minutes; drain. Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; add wine, cheese, olive oil, garlic, parsley, and salt & pepper to taste. Simmer over low heat for 3-5 minutes, stirring frequently. Increase heat to medium high and add shrimp to skillet; cook for a few minutes or until shrimp begins to turn pink (do not overcook). Add whipping cream. Serve portions of pasta topped with shrimp & sauce. Garnish with parmesan cheese (we prefer shredded over grated for garnishing) and fresh parsley, if desired.

Hi Becky

Thanks for the great recipe, my 8 year old son is cooking us garlic prawns tonight for dinner. He loves prawns.

Cheers

This looks yummy!! Sadly, I can't eat garlic, but even if I omit it, I think it would still be awesome!!

This recipe sound really good, but I have an anti-seafood spouse as well. Maybe I'll bookmark this for when I'm home alone!

Becky, this pasta rocks! We made it two nights in a row this week! ha. We doubled the reciped because I like more sauce. Also, we grilled the shrimp first and that is sooooo good too! Thanks!
