Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cornstarch and water in a small bowl. Bring chicken broth, wine, butter, lemon juice, parsley, salt, and pepper to a boil in a medium saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Add the water and cornstarch mixture, 1 teaspoon at a time, until sauce thickens slightly. Remove from heat.

  • While sauce is heating, 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. Drain and keep warm.

  • Coat shrimp with flour, then with beaten egg.

  • Heat oil in a large skillet set over medium-high heat. Pan-fry shrimp in the hot oil until opaque, 2 to 3 minutes on each side, working in batches if needed.

  • Add cooked shrimp to the finished sauce. Place a serving of pasta on each plate; add about 5 shrimp and a few spoonfuls of sauce over top.

Made it exactly how written and thought it was delicious! Added just some extra lemon juice at the end because we’re big fans of lemon. Next time going to try over spinach instead of the pasta because my boyfriend isn’t a big fan of pasta in general, but the sauce was the perfect amount to pour over the pasta. Boyfriend and I agree it’ll stay in our rotation! Read More

I used large shrimp instead of the jumbo but that was the only change I made. This turned out pretty good and the shrimp actually held their crunch. I was afraid they were not going to and that would have been a negative thing for me. My husband and I both agreed that the sauce could have used a little something more but we couldn't quite put our finger on it. Crushed red pepper flakes maybe? Overall this was a good recipe and one I would make again. Read More
