Why I Love This Recipe

My mom showed me how to prepare this dish. Perfect for two on Valentines Day.

Ingredients You'll Need

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.
