How To Cook seafood pasta step-by-step recipe
Begin by adding 1 pound of linguine pasta to a pot of salted boiling water.
While the pasta is cooking, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 6 tablespoons of butter to your skillet. Bring the heat to medium-high and start to brown the butter.
Add the shrimp to the skillet, lemon juice, seasonings and most of the parsley (hold some back for garnish).
Cook the shrimp for about 4 minutes or until they are slightly pink and white, turning once for good color on both sides.
When the pasta is ready (al-dente) transfer the pasta into the skillet using tongs. It’s ok for it to be wet, but let it drain a bit after you pick it up.
Toss the shrimp, butter sauce from the pan and pasta a few times to mix well, let it cook a minute or two – then serve.
Optional: grate some fresh Parmesan-Reggiano cheese on top of the pasta.
