Shrimp Fettuccine with Garlic Butter Sauce

Lauren Perkins-Boyd


This recipe is a family favorite.

Hint: Get easy peel shrimp and save yourself alot of work.
Also smashing the whole cloves of garlic with the side of you knife or your palm makes peeling them a breeze and also cut the mincing time in half.
