What You'll Need:

+ 1 lb. Shrimp, cleaned and deveined

+ 4-5 tbsp. Butter

+ Extra virgin Olive Oil (I used lemon olive oil)

+ 5 Garlic Cloves, minced

+ 1/2 Shallot, minced

+ 1 tsp. Crushed Red Pepper

+ 1/4 tsp. Paprika

+ 3/4 cup White Wine

+ Zest of 1 Lemon

+ Juice of 2 Lemons

+ Salt & Pepper to taste

+ Parsley, chopped

+ Finely grated Parmesan to top (optional – you could also incorporate the parmesan into the sauce before adding in the pasta if you prefer a more creamy consistency. Add pasta water if needed to reach desired consistency)


1. Cook pasta al dente.

2. Season shrimp with salt, pepper, paprika, and crushed red pepper.

3. Heat oil in pan over medium, add shrimp, and sauté until pink/opaque (and C-shaped). Remove shrimp from pan and set aside.

4. In the same pan, add butter, shallot, crushed red pepper, white wine, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Sauté for 2-3 minutes until shallots are translucent and mixture is fragrant.

5. Transfer pasta into the pan. Add parsley and shrimp, then combine.

6. Serve pasta with topped parmesan and parsley. Enjoy!
