Shrimp Scampi Linguine

00:45:00

Once the shrimp are cooked just until they are opaque and the pasta is al denté, just toss them together for a match made in heaven. The shrimp is tender and flavorful, and the linguine is an excellent base for the buttery garlic sauce with just a hint of spice.

STEP 4
Once the butter and olive oil have begun to bubble, add the garlic, shallot, and Crushed Red Pepper Flakes (1/4 tsp) and sauté for 1-2 minutes, stirring frequently so the garlic does not burn.

Remove the frying pan from the heat and add the lemon zest, Lemon Juice (1 1/2 Tbsp) and parsley. Toss well and adjust seasoning to taste.
