Lemon Garlic Shrimp Linguini
I love seafood even though my skin gets irritated at times and breaks out. I can’t stop myself when it comes to a great shrimp or scallops dish. This is one of my favorite shrimp and pasta dishes I make. My son asks for it all the time. We don’t get to make seafood as much as I would like since we are the only 2 that like it in the family. Boo. But some nights we are like so what! we want it! This is always a go to.
So first the ingredients
- about 24 medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
- 1 lb linguine
- 1/4 cup sliced or diced onion
- 1/2 cup frozen spinach thawed and squeezed
- 1 cup frozen corn niblets thawed
- 4 T EVOO
- 2 T butter
- 1 T Italian seasoning
- 3 t garlic or to taste
- pinch of salt
- 1 T lemon pepper seasoning
- 1 fresh lemon squeezed optional
Make pasta as instructed on packed.
Meanwhile add onions to 1 T butter (or oil) in a skillet and sauté about 3 min. Add 1 T butter, the Italian seasoning, garlic, salt and lemon pepper seasoning to pan Stir. Add shrimp to onions and continue sautéing for about 5 min until shrimp is done.
Drain pasta and return pot to stove. Put the corn and spinach into pot and heat through. Return the pasta to the pot and stir. Add the EVOO to the pasta and mix to fully coated. Combine the onion shrimp mixture to the pasta and incorporate until all pasta is coated with the garlicky goodness. Squeeze lemon over pasta and serve with garlic bread.
Hope you love this as much as we do. BTW you can tweak this in so many ways this is just what a simple shrimp scampi pasta recipe has turned into over the years for my son and I.
