"I absolutely LOVE this shrimp recipe, it's quite easy to make with the perfect amount of spicyness but you could always add more red pepper flakes to increase the heat"

Step by Step Method

Step 1

Melt butter with the olive oil in a saute pan. When the mixture is hot, add the garlic, white pepper, red pepper flakes, oregano, and cayenne pepper making sure to stir well. When garlic looks cooked but not brown (about 3 minutes) add the shrimp. Toss the shrimp about in the pan, coating them with the spiced oil

Step 2

Add the lemon juice and keep tossing over the heat. Quickly add the parsley, bread crumbs, and Parmesan. Toss to coat completely (The shrimp should now be bright pink and cooked through). Place the pan under the broiler until cheese looks melted (1-2 minutes). Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary.

Step 3

Serve over the cooked pasta, with additional Parmesan sprinkled over the top.

Absolutely divine choice to make for a special meal for my husband and I. We loved it. I had fresh broccoli flowerettes and bread sticks to go with it for a fabulous meal!

Wonderful flavourful recipe. I used white prawns and they don't turn that pretty shade of pink but they are a nice firm prawn. This recipe is a keeper for sure Thanks TeaBo for a lovely dinner. 21 Oct 2018 . Made agin and loved it just as much.
