Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook linguine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, about 11 minutes.

    Advertisement
  • While linguine is cooking, melt butter in a frying pan. Mix in 1 tablespoon parsley, salt, and pepper. Add shrimp and cook for 2 minutes, flipping 1 or 2 times. Add 1 tablespoon parsley, lemon juice, and garlic. Cook for another 2 minutes, flipping 1 or 2 more times. Pour in sherry and cook for 1 minute.

  • Drain linguine and divide among plates. Spoon shrimp on top, reserving juices for dipping or to pour over pasta at the table. Sprinkle remaining 1 tablespoon parsley over each plate for garnish.

Cook's Notes:

If using frozen shrimp, thaw, rinse, and pat dry first.

Substitute fresh parsley for the parsley flakes if desired.

Loooved this recipe! Very delicious! I doubled the amount of sauce based on other reviews and because this sauce is so good I might even triple it or make 2.5 the amount of sauce for a pound of pasta next time. I did however use half the amount of sherry wine as I’m not as familiar with it and found that to be perfect. I recommend using fresh ground pepper on top to finish it as well as Parmesan cheese on top. Other than that, a great and easy recipe! Thanks for sharing it! Read More

Easy quick and delicious. No leftovers! Next time will double the sauce. Great with fresh pasta and a bit of parmesan cheese garnish. Add a glass of chardonnay and you are in culinary heaven. Read More

This has great flavor. The sherry puts it over the top. I doubled all the ingredients except for the parsley and sherry. Only adding. Another TBS of sherry. I removed the shrimp from the pan and added the pasta along with 2 ladles of pasta water. Read More

I doubled the sauce, and extra garlic, for our personal taste. It was really good. For so few ingredients, and quick dinner, it’s a nice surprise. I may add asparagus tips to it next time for color and because it’s so good with butter and garlic. Sprinkled top with fresh Parmesan and served with crusty bread. Read More
