I made this for dinner the other day and it was so good I though I would share the recipe.

(sorry this picture is so lousy but it I hadn't planned on posting about this so it was a very quick, last minute cell phone photo)

Garlic Lemon Shrimp Linguine
Garlic Lemon Shrimp with Linguine
(Serves 2)

What you need: 
  • 2 tsp extra virgin olive oil    
  • 8 oz. uncooked shrimp, peeled and deveined (~ 14 extra large)
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 6 tsp lemon juice
  • ¼ C. white wine *
  • ¼ C. low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/8 C. fresh parsley, chopped
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 4 oz. uncooked linguine
*You can substitute the wine with very dry sherry or extra dry vermouth. Or simply double the chicken broth to ½ C. total liquid.

What to do:
Boil some water in a large pot and cook linguine according to package directions. (Once done, drain and keep warm until needed).

Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Add shrimp to pan and sauté until pink, about 2-3 minutes. Add garlic and about ½ the parsley and sauté, stirring constantly, about 30 seconds more. Remove shrimp to bowl and keep warm (leaving as much garlic in pan as possible).

In the pan, add wine, broth, lemon juice and remaining parsley and bring to boil. Boil, uncovered, until the sauce is reduced by about half. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Add cooked linguine to pan and toss to coat. Split pasta into two bowls and top with shrimp evenly. Sprinkle with a little more parsley, if desired.

I put the recipe into myFitnessPal and it stated... per serving: Calories = 366 and total fat = 7.2g. Not bad! (This recipe serves 2). (your values may vary depending on your ingredients, brands and measurements!)

This really came out so delicious and, despite the seemingly small portion, I was fully satisfied after the meal. I served with a fresh salad on the side. I hope you enjoy it too.
