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.

How to Make Shrimp Fettuccine with Garlic Butter Sauce

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook pasta according to the box directions for al dente. Reserve 1/4 cup of the pasta water.
  2. While the pasta cooks,in a large cold skillet add the butter, olive oil, shallot, garlic, capers and red pepper flake. turn burner on to medium low and cook about 5 minutes or until the shallots and garlic are soft. Increase heat to medium and add shrimp, cook until pink and opaque about 5 minutes. Salt and pepper to taste (I go light on the salt because the pasta water has alot of salt in it)
