30 Minute Shrimp Scampi Linguini a Piri Piri
I love Shrimp and I love pasta that’s why I make this recipe very often. I had a few drops of piri piri for kick but this is optional to your taste buds.
This savory recipe cooks in 30 minutes so it’s a perfect weekday meal. However, it’s decadent enough to serve for special occasions. Enjoy!
2 pound of medium shrimp (devained with shells on or off)
1 pound of Linguini pasta
6 cloves of garlic (finely minced)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
Crushed black pepper
3 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/2 cup of vinho verde or white wine
1/2 teaspoon paprika
Piri piri or (hot sauce) to taste
Lemon wedges for garnish
Prepare the linguini per package directions, drain and add a drop of olive oil. Stir and keep warm for adding to the shrimp.
In a large deep skillet, cook the garlic with the olive oil and butter for a few minutes until translucent but not browned.
Turn heat to high and add the shrimp, and cook for about 2 minutes turning them over to cook on all sides.
Add the salt, paprika and wine, and cook for about 3 – 5 minutes to reduce liquid.
Turn heat to low and add the pasta. Stir to incorporate. Add the piri piri, parsley and lemon wedges before serving.
Note: If you find the sauce has reduced to much add more butter.
