  • 3 teaspoons cornstarch

  • 3 teaspoons water

  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth

  • ½ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup salted butter

  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice

  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh parsley

  • 1 pinch salt and ground black pepper to taste

  • 1 (8 ounce) package linguine pasta

  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • ½ cup all-purpose flour

  • 3 large eggs, beaten

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil, or as needed


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. Coat shrimp with flour, then with beaten egg.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
