How to Make SHRIMP AND LEMON SPAGHETTI

Step-by-Step

  1. Make the Shrimp: In a medium saute-pan, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper; add to the preheated pan in a single layer. Cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until pink and cooked through. Set aside.
  2. Make the pasta. Cook the spaghetti according to package directions until still firm to the bite, stirring, about 8 minutes.
  3. Drain, reserving 1 cup of the pasta water. Meanwhile, whisk the olive oil, parmesan, lemon zest and juice in a large bowl to blend.
  4. Toss the pasta with the lemon sauce, shrimp and the reserved cooking liquid, adding only 1/4 cup at a time as needed to moisten. Season with the salt and pepper; stir in the basil. Garnish with the fried capers and more parmesan if desired.
