  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons salted butter divided
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic about 3 cloves
  • 1/2 cup white wine or vegetable/chicken broth
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 pound shrimp peeled and deveined (21/25 count)*
  • 3/4 pound linguine plus reserved pasta water
  • 3 tablespoons parsley chopped
  • 1/2 lemon juiced


  • In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add in minced garlic and stir until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add in wine and simmer until it has reduced by half.
  • Sprinkle shrimp with salt and pepper. Add to pan and cook until they are opaque and pink on both sides. Should be about 90 seconds per side.
  • Add in hot pasta and toss to coat, adding in reserved pasta water as needed to create a sauce. Toss with parsley and add in lemon juice to taste. Serve hot.



*I used large shrimp that had 21-25 per pound. Feel free to use whatever size you'd like! The smaller shrimp will take less time to cook, the larger shrimp will take longer.
