Lemon Pasta With Shrimp


  • Author: Mila

Description

TwitterThis recipe feeds a crowd, and it’s very simple to make. It takes less than 30 minutes and is most definitely a show-stopper!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 3 tablespoons of dill
  • 1 cup of freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 pound of spaghetti
  • 2 lbs of peeled and de-veined extra large shrimp
  • 2 tablespoons of butter
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 cup parmigiano reggiano

Instructions

  1. Season your shrimp with salt, pepper, and lemon zest, and set aside. Make sure to peel your shrimp prior to beginning.
  2. Add water to a large saucepan, and set your stove to medium-high heat. Add the salt to the water and let it come to a rolling boil. Once the water is boiling, add in your spaghetti.
  3. Save 1 cup of pasta water and drain the rest.
  4. Grab a large pan (in this case I used my Le Creuset oval dutch oven) While your water is boiling, add olive oil, butter, and garlic to your pan. Let the garlic turn a light brown color, stir, and add your shrimp and cook until pink.
  5. Add in your lemon juice.
  6. Add your pasta to your shrimp and stir.
  7. Shave Parmigiano Reggiano (to your liking) over the pasta and shrimp.
  8. Pour in your cup of the reserved pasta water.
  9. Stir until pasta is creamy.
  10. Garnish the lemon pasta with dill.
