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


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.


Pairs Well With
