  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 9 oz. (225gr.) fresh Linguine (I used Buitoni)
  • 1 tablespoons garlic minced (5 cloves)
  • 1- pound large 21-25 shrimp, peeled and deveined (about 20 shrimp)
  • 2 tablespoon salt plus 1/2 teaspoon salt divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice freshly squeezed (2 lemons)
  • 1/2 lemon thinly sliced in half-rounds
  • 5-6 drops of Tabasco Sauce optional


  • Heat the olive oil and butter in a large heavy-bottom pan. Add the garlic and sauté for a minute.
  • Add shrimp, salt and pepper and cook each side for 2 minutes. Take it off the heat and add the lemon juice, lemon zest, parsley, and lemon slices. Toss to combine.
  • Add 1 tablespoon salt into a large pot of water and bring it to a boil. Once boiled, add the fresh Linguine and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  • Drain the Linguine and place it back to the pot. Add the shrimp and give it all a big toss.
  • To serve, sprinkle it with more fresh parsley and if desired, add a couple of drops of Tabasco Sauce.
