Sally's Recipe Of The Week: Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Pasta

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Pasta
Serves 2


Need dinner fast, this is it. Thaw out shrimp in the fridge while you're at work and you can put this dinner together in minutes.

Here's what you will need:

1

Pasta of your choice- I like microwave vegetable pasta
2 TBS olive oil
2 - 3 garlic cloves
1 TBS lemon juice plus lemon wedges for serving
1 tsp ground cumin
2 tbs fresh parsley plus more for serving
pat of unsalted butter
salt
And.....

2

Shrimp! How much depends on you I have about 15 large, peeled, deveined shrimp.  If you are going to make more shrimp increase the amount of sauce you make. If frozen make sure they are completely thawed. I also decided to remove the tails.

3

Chop up your parsley and thinly slice the garlic. You can chop it or mince it if you like. I like thin slices in this dish.

4

Heat up the oil and butter in a wide skillet. (I had my burner on 4 out of 10)

5

Season you shrimp with a bit of salt and add to the pan. When the shrimp start to curl, flip them. The smaller the shrimp the quicker they will cook, don't overcook them!

8

When you flip the shrimp add in the garlic, parsley, cumin and lemon juice.

6

Remove the shrimp from  the pan and add in your cooked pasta combining it with the sauce in the pan. Taste and season if needed. I added in fresh cracked black pepper. Put the shrimp back in the pan and combine.

7

Plate it up garnishing with parsley and a lemon wedge.
