Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil. Cook fettuccine at a boil until tender yet firm to the bite, 7 to 8 minutes. Reserve 1/4 cup of the cooking water and drain the remaining water.

  • Combine flour and Cajun seasoning in a small bowl. Pat shrimp dry and add to the bowl, tossing to coat.

  • Heat butter and olive oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Place shrimp into the skillet once the butter bubbles and cook for 2 minutes per side. Transfer shrimp to a clean bowl. Add garlic to the same skillet and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Pour chicken broth into the skillet and scrape up any brown bits.

  • Whisk in remaining flour-Cajun seasoning slowly until well incorporated. Season with white pepper and red pepper flakes. Reduce heat to medium-low and slowly whisk in cream; cook for 2 minutes. Add Parmesan cheese slowly, whisking constantly. Cook until sauce has thickened, 2 minutes more. Return shrimp to the skillet and add pasta; toss to combine.

  • Mix in a little of the cooking water if the sauce is too thick, 1 tablespoon at a time. Taste and season with salt, if necessary. Serve sprinkled with parsley.

I used Cappello's gluten free fettucine noodles and sorghum flour (gluten free) instead of the noodles and flour called for in the recipe. The recipe was delicious! I doubled it as the recipe said it served one but it ended up feeding my husband and me twice! He was skeptical about it at first but LOVED it. I will definitely make this again. Read More
