Garlic Lemon Shrimp
Total TimePrep/Total Time: 20 min.
I will make this as a stir fry...skip the pasta, toss with an assortment of stir fried veggies using spray rather than oil...maybe a tsp of butter along with the garlic and shrimp...trying to eat healthier after too many goodies at Christmas!
Lovely will try to have it either at home or a good seafood restaurant
Good flavor. It's better to think of this as flavorful shrimp than a pasta meal, as there isn't really sauce. I doubled it and still needed to add more lemon juice and oil to coat pasta. This is great if you have the right expectations.
I used chicken breast instead of shrimp! Seasoned well & it came out so good!!
No flavor. Terrible recipe
I cut the oil to 1 tablespoon, saving the fat. Sauteed the garlic first, the added the shrimp. Cooked as directed adding lemon pepper, kosher salt, and a little hot pepper flake. I also used the juice of one lemon. It came out very lemony, but we sort of lost the garlic a bit. It also dressed the pasta very nicely. Overall a good starting place for a novice seafood cook.
Sounds great --Haven't made it yet, but have made similar. Will do so tonight. BTW- I agree with Roland
I believe a white wine as in a chardonnay should be added to recipe and possibly a little chicken stock I feel the recipe lacks a sauce like consistency which when it is put on the Posta it is dry...
Instead of complaining about the spices or lack of ingredients to make a sauce, create one of your own. If you don't like cumin, add basil or Italian seasoning if you like that. Or any spice that you do like. If you need some sauce, add a bit of butter and garlic, shallot or onion (scallions would work also) and a teaspoon of finely grated lemon zest to the oil, then add some pasta water to round it all out. Maybe a splash of white wine, if you are inclined that way... Become a bit creative and use this basic recipe as a starting point for your own tastes and creations. Be BRAVE!
There wasn't any sauce. The flavor was lost, no lemon flavor at all. I did like the crisp of the shrimp - that was different, but totally not what I was expecting from the recipe. It was mouth sticking dry, even after I added olive oil and butter to the spaghetti. It is a basic good recipe, it just needs to be worked up into something that matches the name.
