Garlic Shrimp with Linguine
I keep saying that you don't need to go out to an expensive restaurant to get a really delicious meal. I bought a large bag of shrimp and it fed 6 of us for $13.98 for the shrimp and $1.98 for noodles, serve with bread and butter. I absolutely love shrimp and this is a really delicious recipe, easy to make and a family favorite. I end up making the whole bag for our family and there is never any shrimp left in the end. One of my favorites. Me and the girls work together peeling the shrimp, they always ask to help. You can adjust everything to your taste, pour the buttery sauce over the shrimp and noodles! You could even serve it with a Pan Seared Steak.
24 large uncooked frozen shrimp, peeled and deveined
salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
2 tbsp olive oil
3 t. of minced garlic
2 tbsp cold butter
desired amount of dried parsley flakes
1/2 lemon, juice or 1 T. of lemon juice
Make sure the shrimp are very well thawed and drained (I get the excess water off with a paper towel). Season with salt and pepper to taste. Place a large skillet on high heat, and add the olive oil. When the oil is very hot then add the shrimp and sauté on high heat for 2 minutes, or until the shrimp are about halfway cooked. Add the minced garlic, and sauté for 1 more minute. Add the cold butter, reduce heat to medium, and cook for another minute, or until the shrimp are cooked. Turn off the heat and stir in the parsley and lemon. Serve immediately.
