After throwing some ingredients together for tapas, the flavor was so fresh and light my family asked for more. By warming it through with a few more ingredients I turned it into a family meal with pasta instead of just a snack.

  • Place shrimp and crab boil into a large saucepan. Fill with water to 1 inch above the shrimp, and bring to a boil over high heat. Boil for 3 minutes until shrimp turn pink, then drain.

  • Meanwhile, melt butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in garlic, and red onion, cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 4 minutes. Stir in bell pepper, corn, lime juice, cilantro, oregano, chipotle pepper, and salt. Stir in the half-and-half, and bring to a simmer. Once the mixture is simmering, stir in shrimp, and toss with the drained pasta.

The eight ingredients starting with the garlic should be mixed together and let sit overnight in the fridge to marinate the oregano should be 1 tablespoon not one teaspoon (don't be afraid as it mixes through). The entire mixture should be heated through with the melted butter and proceed with the recipe. The garlic and red onion should not be cooked until translucent as this dulls the intensity of the garlic and red onion changing the final flavor. Also shouldn't take as much time as recipe states.

This is a good beginning. I added a large can of whole tomatoes chopped with the vegetables a 1/2 half cup of virgin olive oil and double the amount of Cilantro and Spices. Instead of half and half I used white wine. Read More

I altered the recipe a little bit added Rotel Tomatoes and Chilies. Put a little kick in it. I did like this recipe and I will make it again. Read More

Changes I made: I marinated the shrimp in the juice of half a lime for a couple of hours; I cut WAY back on the amount of butter called for; I subbed regular yellow onion for the red and I used a couple of tbsps of McCormick's Chipotle Chile Pepper powder instead of canned peppers. This turned out great. Thanks! Read More

Another classic that I've held on to. Be careful about the butter and you may want to use less pasta but other than that mmmm! Read More

This was delicious - I omitted the red bell pepper as I had none on hand. I would make this again but I think the sauce was not enough for that much linguine so I'd double the sauce and leave everything else as is. Read More

Tasty but I think I would have made a roux first as the sauce is a bit thin. Also the color is beautiful but for more variation add green bell in with the red. Read More
