Lemon Shrimp and Spinach Fettuccine Recipe

Serves/Makes: 4 servings

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 pound medium uncooked shrimps, (thawed if frozen), peeled and deveined
  • 8 ounces dried Fettuccine, uncooked
  • 1 - 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 - 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 5 handfuls fresh baby spinach
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest
  • Juice from half of a lemon
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
  • 1 pinch cayenne pepper
How to cook Lemon Shrimp and Spinach Fettuccine:
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add fettuccine or any pasta of your choice. Boil for 12 minutes or until al dente (firm and slightly springy), stirring occasionally.
  • While waiting on the pasta I like to do the prepare work for my other ingredients. Peel, devein and rinse shrimps. Pat dry with a paper towel and set aside. Grate lemon zest and slice garlic.
  • If your pasta finishes cooking before you have the rest of your meal prepped, drain, and rinse with cold water to stop the pasta from cooking, and return to pot.
  • Add a few tablespoons of butter to keep the pasta from sticking and cover with a lid until you’re ready.
  • Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium to high heat. Add garlic slices when hot and cook for 1 to 2 minutes or until lightly browned.
  • Add shrimps and cook for 3 to 4 minutes, tossing frequently, until pink and opaque.
  • Turn heat to low-medium setting and add spinach and cooked fettuccine. Cook for 1 to 2 more minutes or until spinach just begins to wilt.
  • Remove from heat, stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and cayenne.
  • Serve the Lemon Shrimp and Spinach Fettuccine with a lemon wedge as garnish.
