How to make it

  • For the lemon infused olive oil:
  • Combine 1/2 cup of olive oil and the zest of one lemon in a small bowl See Photo. Set aside.
  • For the rest:
  • Bring a large pasta pot or other pot of salted water to a boil over high heat See Photo. When boiling reduce to a medium boil, add the linguine and cook until tender but still firm, stirring occasionally. 8-10 minutes. Reserve about 1 cup of the liquid to thin the final mixture if needed.
  • Meanwhile, in a large heavy skillet, warm two tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
  • Add the shallots, salt, pepper, lemon juice and garlic, saute for two minutes. Add the shrimp and cook until pink, about 5 more minutes See Photo. Turn off the heat, add arugula and the cooked pasta. Toss to combine. See Photo
  • Pour the infused olive oil through a fine strainer, mesh sieve, or strainer lined with cheese cloth, over the mixture. Add a little of the pasta water if needed. Add the chopped parsley. Toss to combine again.
  • Serve hot immediately.

    Made this Sunday night and it was delicious. Took your advice about the lemon and garlic and thanks for that; more lemon would have been too much. RJ

    Hey if lobster is easier to get, then try that. Here it's the other way around. Lobster meat cut into shrimp sized pieces could even be better.

    How did I miss this one? I don't use a lot of shrimp as its bloody expensive here, lobster's cheaper, but This sounds too good to pass up. Thanks for the tip re the lemon and garlic. A high 5. RJ

    LOL, it was bought to my attention, gently and in a private message, that I had omitted the shrimp from the ingredients list. Being the first to poke fun at myself I had to make it public. It's actually much better with the shrimp.

    Doug... I enjoy shrimp and pasta and this sounds great. I think we would enjoy the crispness the lemon additives would provide; and we would use more garlic too. It looks like a 5 to me...

    Does sound like a little too much lemon, this would be something to consider. Perhaps use less to begin with , then add more if needed. I do like the recipe. Nice addition of arugula here, too. The pictures look wonderful!

    I have read up on infusing oil and am more confused than ever. Sounds nice and I will try it but a little less lemon I think too. I have been trying to get Tubbetini as the little tube acts like an aquaduct for all thove luscious flavors.
    Let you know how it turns out.

    Whew, hope I make it before comments hit. We saw this on Food Network.

    I know, I know. I talk about Suthren Cooking but in the middle of Lent, on a Friday, you can only eat so much fried fish.

    There was a little too much lemon for our taste and not enough garlic.

    Adjust, adjust, adjust... that's what recipes are all about. A roadmap but not a full itinerary.

    This is the final result.
