Angel hair pasta & spicy shrimp.

October 1, 2008

I’ve definitely mentioned before how much I adore shrimp. As for pasta? Love it. And spicy stuff? Again, love it. So when I stumbled across this recipe in Real Simple I knew I had to try it. Its so quick and easy, as corny as it sounds.. it really is “real simple.” And on a night like tonight, when its friggin’ pouring rain out AGAIN, and I was eager to get home, and get dinner made and eaten quickly so I could watch ‘Pushing Daisies‘… it was perfect. Obviously, I’m feeling better today- so back to cooking!

In the skillet...



  • ¾ pound angel hair pasta or spaghetti
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pound frozen peeled and deveined medium shrimp, thawed
  • ¾ cup dry white wine
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • Kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons butter


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions. Drain the pasta and return it to the pot.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook, stirring, for 1 minute (do not let it brown). Add the shrimp, wine, red pepper, and ½ teaspoon salt. Simmer until the shrimp are opaque, 2 to 3 minutes. Stir in the butter until melted.
  3. Toss the pasta with the shrimp mixture.

Result? One de-friggin’-licious meal. I would add more red pepper, however. Maybe ½ teaspoon instead of ¼ teaspoon. But its all up to individual taste.

The way you prepare the shrimp just depends what kind of shrimp you buy; if you buy frozen it tells you how to prepare it on the package, and if you buy fresh it can usually be prepared to your specifications (i.e. deveined, etc).

Quick and easy meal, quick and easy blog post. 😀

  1. Really? Oh man, I could live on shrimp I think. I wasn’t too into them either, but then Jay took me to a seafood restaurant for our anniversary one year and I had it, and I swear I became an addict.

  2. love your blog, I’m getting addicted to cupcakes…to the point I dream to open a cc bakery here in Italy!!

    On the savory side, I’d like to share the Italian version of this recipe: we use also parsley and very fine breadcrumbs instead of parmesan… we would ever never use parmesan on a shrimp pasta!!! (cheese together with fish/mussels/etc. very uncommon here, uh,Italians can be quite snobbish) and if you like it a bit sweeter, you can use shredded zucchini, raw, fried or just sauteed.

    Ciao from Venezia (I didn’t see the city to your International list, please add it)

  3. I just saw Venezia today, actually, and now I know who it is 😉

    And thank you for the breadcrumbs + parsley tip! I’m going to try that. Although, as an American, I am also addicted to parmesan and put it on practically everything. What can I say, our mix of cultures here have everything watered down!

  27. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.
