  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 6-8 Large shrimp, uncooked
  • 8 oz. cooked Linguine
  • 1/4 cup white flour
  • 1 tbsp. garlic, chopped
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 cup of white wine or white cooking wine
  • 1 Tbsp. of FRESH squeezed lemon
  • A few scallions which I like but optional
  • 3 tbsp. of parmesan cheese (shredded)-looks nice
  • 2 tbsp. butter, soft
  • 1 tbs. of FRESH (PLEASE FRESH) parsley, chopped
  • dash of salt and fresh black pepper

Directions

  • Cook pasta
  • Lightly coat shrimp with flour and set aside
  • Heat oil on medium high heat
  • Add garlic and saute until light brown
  • Press shrimp into the garlic so it sticks to shrimp
  • Cook until shrimp is pink on one side
  • Turn shrimp and add 1/4 (only 1/4) of the wine
  • Add lemon
  • Reduce wine to half, turn heat to low.
  • Sprinkle shrimp with 1/2 of the cheese and parsley
  • Add remaining wine, butter and salt & pepper.
  • Add warm pasta gently stirring until butter melts
  • Place on dinner plate-bringing shrimp to the top
  • Garnish with remaining cheese and parsely.
