What Ingredients do you need?
This recipe calls for very basic easily available ingredients.
Pasta- I have linguine here but just any shape of pasta will do.
Shrimps- Fresh or Frozen, both would work here. Clean and devein the shrimps. I like to keep the tails on because we absolutely love those crunchy bits.
Mushroom- Mushroom cleaned and sliced.
Seasoning- Italian seasoning, paprika, salt and pepper. That's all.
Butter and Oil - Butter for the rich sauce. Because oil has a high smoking point, it prevents the butter from burning.
Sundried Tomatoes - These sweet and tart sundried tomatoes are just amazing. These have umami and the oil is also really flavourful.
Garlic- Well, garlic makes everything better. more, the better.
This recipe is also versatile and you can add pepper, a hand full of spinach to it.
How To Make Mushroom Garlic Shrimp Pasta?
- Start with cooking pasta in well-seasoned water until it is al dente, for about 8-10 minutes. Reserve half cup of pasta water to use later.
- While the pasta is cooking, heat butter and oil in another pan. Cook shrimp along with seasoning until its no pinker. Cooking shrimps don't take more than 3-4 minutes. Keep aside the shrimp in a bowl.
- To the same pan add sliced mushroom. Cook undisturbed for 2-3 minutes for the mushroom to become golden brown. Toss and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
- Add rest of the ingredients, cooked pasta, Shrimp along with any juice in the bowl back to the pan.
