Serves 4 | Prep Time 10 | Cook Time


350g / 12.4 oz. linguine or other long pasta
1 tbsp olive oil
2 medium shallots, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
125ml / ½ cup dry white wine
250g / 8.8 oz. cocktail or cherry tomatoes, halved
2 tbsp heavy cream
400g / 3.5 oz. cooked shrimp
A small bunch fresh coriander/cilantro, chopped
Salt & pepper to taste

If you are using frozen shrimp, remove them from the fridge and allow to come to room temperature before using.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil and cook your pasta according to package directions. 1 or 2 minutes before your pasta is done cooking, ladle about 250ml / 1 cup of the cooking water into a cup.

In the meantime, heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add the shallots and garlic, season with salt and pepper, and sauté until soft and translucent, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Add the wine and stir.

Add the tomatoes and simmer until the wine has evaporated, about 5 minutes.

Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce, along with the shrimp and cream, and toss to combine. If you find the sauce is too thick, add a splash of the pasta water.

Add the coriander and serve immediately.
