I made this recipe for dinner tonight and I have to say...it was DEEEEEEEEEEEEEELICIOUS!
The only change I made was to use dried parsley instead of fresh because that's what I had. Oh...and I used gluten-free pasta, of course. I wish I would have thought to take a picture of the meal so you can see how gorgeous it looks plated...but I didn't...so you get this pic instead. Sorry dudes. But that should speak VOLUMES as to how good it was! GO ME!
Recipe from Ina Garten, Barefoot Contessa Family Style
1 1/2 pounds linguine
6 tablespoons (3/4 stick) unsalted butter
5 tablespoons good olive oil
3 tablespoons minced garlic (9 cloves)
2 pounds large shirmp, peeled and deveined (just buy them that way)
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
3/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
Grated zest of 1 lemon
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (4 lemons)
1/2 lemon, thinly sliced in half-rounds
1/4 teaspoon hot red pepper flakes
Drizzle some oil in a large pot of boiling salted water, add 1 tablespoon of salt and the linguine, and cook for 7 to 10 minutes, or according to the directions on the package.
Meanwhile, in another large, heavy-bottomed pan, melt the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic. Saute for 1 minute. Be careful, the garlic burns easily! Add the shrimp, 1 tablespoon of salt, and the pepper and saute until the shrimp have just turned pink, about 5 minutes, stirring often. Remove from the heat, add the parsley, lemon zest, lemon juice, lemon slices, and red pepper flakes. Toss to combine.
When the pasta is done, drain the cooked linguine and then put it back in the pot. Immediately add the shrimp and sauce, toss well, and serve.
