Shrimp Fettuccine Aglio e Olio – Quick and Easy

Shrimp Fettuccine Aglio e Olio is our jazzed up version of the traditional Spaghetti Aglio Olio. Go ahead and make this real good Shrimp and pasta dish for your own table.

We shared this three years ago and it was very well received so we thought that we would tune it up a little and share it again.

Shrimp Fettuccine Aglio e Olio

12 large shrimp peeled and deveined. Let them sit in a bowl with some lemon juice and the rinds for a few minutes as you put a pot of lightly salted water on to boil for the fettuccine (or whatever kind of pasta you prefer). When the water starts to boil add the pasta and stir immediately.

Include the lemon in the pan with the shrimp

While the pasta is progressing put a skillet on at medium heat with 4 tbsp. of extra virgin olive oil and a tbsp. of butter. Chop up 6-8 cloves of garlic.  Let the oil and the butter heat up for a minute or so and add the garlic stirring it up to distribute it out in the skillet. Add a pinch each of salt, black pepper and red pepper flakes. Spread the shrimp out in the skillet laying on their sides. As soon as they turn pink on the down, or pan side, turn them over. When they are pink on both sides and opaque in the middle the pasta should be ready. You want it to be a little more firm than al dente because it is going to cook some more in the skillet. Add the pasta to the pan with the shrimp and garlic.  

Add a couple of tbsp. of the pasta water and about 2 tbsp. of chopped fresh parsley, (or 1tbsp. of dried) and 3-4 tbsp. of grated parmesan cheese to the pan. Mix it all together and toss a couple of times.

Serve up your Shrimp Fettuccine Aglio e Olio! With some wine that you like and maybe some baked parmesan zucchini chips like you see in the pic.
