Ingredients

How to make it

  • About 1 hour before serving, place the olive oil and butter in a large skillet; add sliced garlic and seasonings to the pan.
  • Simmer at a VERY LOW heat to allow the garlic and seasonings to infuse into the oil and butter. Keep the temperature very low - you do not want to brown the garlic.
  • When ready to prepare the meal, remove shells from shrimp and de-vein, if necessary; set them aside.
  • Prepare pasta as directed on package.
  • While pasta is boiling, turn the heat up a bit on the oil/butter mixture and add the shrimp in a single layer.
  • Cook shrimp until done, which should only take about 2 minutes max per side. I have found that once I flip the shrimp in the pan, I cook the other side only for 1 minute longer then remove them to a plate and cover them - the heat will continue to cook them, without over-cooking them and making them tough.
  • Drain pasta and add it to the oil/butter in the pan; add the shrimp.
  • Toss pasta and shrimp to coat with the oil and butter mixture.
  • Place pasta and shrimp on serving plate and top with fresh chives and parmesan; serve immediately.

    This sounds really good and easy. I have a shrimp and pasta recipe that is fabulous but significantly more work. I can't wait to try this.
