The theme to the recipe swap this time around was Seafood/Fish. I received Garlic Lime Shrimp Pasta from Gourmet: Day to Day's Kevinslady.
Jacob and I have been trying to eat more seafood/shrimp, but it is still a work in progress since seafood/shrimp have very fine lines between underdone and overdone. I was excited about this recipe though because everything was already in my cabinets at home. I didn't have to buy anything.
Garlic Lime Shrimp
adapted from Gourmet: Day to Day
Garlic lime shrimp:
1.5 pound uncooked large shrimp, peeled and deveined
5 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 cup butter (original recipe calls for 1/2 cup)
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon minced fresh parsley
1 lb Hot cooked pasta (I used fusilli pasta instead of spaghetti noodles)
Flavored butter “finishing” sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
1/2 tablespoon feta cheese crumbled
1 clove of garlic minced
1/2 tablespoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon olive oil
1) Combine all ingredients for the flavored butter finishing sauce and whisk well to combine. The softer the butter is, the easier it will be to combine the ingredients. Cover and put in the fridge.
2) Start boiling the pasta you're using.
3) In a large skillet, saute the shrimp, garlic, salt in butter until the shrimp turn pink, about 5 minutes. Turn off the heat once they become pink, so they don't overcook. Once shrimp are cooked add the flavored butter, coat shrimp. Next, stir in lime juice and parsley. Serve with pasta.
