  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.

Quick, easy and wonderfully tasty. This recipe is now in my rotation. Thank you!

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.
