Easy Lemon Shrimp Linguini
I could eat pasta every day. Some weeks, I do. It’s easy to make and there are so many different combinations. My most recent favourite is this Lemon Shrimp Linguini. It takes very little prep time and can be made even on those nights when everyone gets home late and there’s not much time to prepare dinner.
1/2 of a 454g box of uncooked linguini
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
1/2 of a 340g package of frozen, cooked salad shrimp, thawed
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup lemon juice
2 tablespoons chopped parsley
grated parmesan cheese for serving
1. Cook linguini according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
2. Melt butter in a large pan over medium heat. Add garlic, shrimp, and red pepper flakes. Stir occasionally for two minutes.
3. Add chicken stock and lemon juice to the shrimp mixture. Bring to a simmer and stir occasionally for two minutes. Stir in pasta and parsley. Mix until combined and pasta is coated in the sauce.
4. Serve with parmesan cheese.
