This is one of those pretty simple dishes that can be prepared in the time that it takes for the pasta to boil.
- 3/4 box of Linguine
- 20-30 small peel and eat shrimp, uncooked
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon creole seasoning
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 1 cup chicken broth
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1/2 parmesan cheese
- red pepper flakes
Cook pasta according to package instructions.
Clean and peel the shrimp, season with the creole seasoning, then sprinkle flour on top and toss together so they are all well coated.
In a deep skillet add olive oil and butter heat over high heat. Add shrimp and cook on each side for about 2 minutes until crispy on both sides.
Remove shrimp and set aside, in same skillet add in heavy cream and chicken broth. Season to taste with salt, pepper, oregano, and red pepper. Cook until sauce thickens then add parm cheese and whisk.
Add Linguine and Shrimp to sauce, and toss until everything is well coated.
This dish was truly flavorful and filling. I couldn't even finish my portion, but my husband loved it so much he ate the rest of mine too. I made a really nice Caprese salad on the side too, and ended up mixing a little into my shrimp and pasta- it made for a really nice fresh contrast to a heavy pasta dish. Next time I make this I will definitely add some fresh tomatoes at the end. Enjoy!
