I LOVE Shrimp! No need to beat around the bush. They are easy to cook, go well with everything, and my husband eats them up! Since tomorrow I was planning on pigging out with our guests on some mexican food, I wanted a light supper tonight. For me light in synonymous with fast!
I stock up on raw shrimp when it is on sale and freeze it. Last I checked I had like 5 pounds in my freezer so I thawed some out peeled them and decided to make a pasta dish...because I also love pasta! SO healthy I know!
Sara's Swanky Shrimps...& Pasta:
1lb raw, peeled and deveined shrimp (doesn't matter the size really, I happened to pull out smaller shrimp from the freezer), 1/2 stick of butter melted, 1/3 cup of white wine (i had some leftover yellow tail), 1/4 cup olive oil, 4 teaspoons minced garlic, 1.5 teaspoons italian seasoning (or whatever you want), salt and pepper to taste, and half a box of spaghetti (I prefer to use whole wheat just for added nutritional benefit), cooked.
Mix everything but the spaghetti in the bottom of a broiler pan and broil for approximately 4 minutes, or however long it takes until the shrimp are opaque and cooked through, toss in the spaghetti!
My husband and I completed our meal with a fresh from the garden salad and topped the pasta with Parmesan cheese. It was pretty delicious and left us full without being stuffed. I will certainly be playing with this recipe again!
We are totally pumped to entertain our guests tomorrow night! Not many of our friends have come over to our new apartment so it will be nice to cook for others. I hope I remember to take a picture of our mexican night!
Good luck and happy eating!
