  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Place shrimp in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow bowl.
  2. For marinade, combine olive oil, wine, garlic, lemon zest, salt, crushed red pepper, and black pepper in a small bowl. Pour marinade over shrimp. Seal bag; turn to coat shrimp. Marinate in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
  3. Drain shrimp, reserving marinade. Melt butter over medium heat in an extra-large skillet. Cook shrimp in hot butter for 3 to 5 minutes or until shrimp are opaque. Add reserved marinade and cook for 1 minute more.
  4. Cook pasta according to package directions in a large pot; drain. Return pasta to pot. Add shrimp mixture; toss to combine. Serve with lemon wedges and fresh basil.
  5. [Cleaning tip: Once the stove top is cool, wipe up any oil splatters or spills with Clorox(R) Disinfecting Wipes**.]


  • *Tip:
  • To peel shrimp: Use your fingers to open the shell lengthwise down the body's underside. Starting at the head end, peel the shell back from the body. Then gently pull on the tail portion of the shell and remove it. To devein shrimp, use a sharp knife to make a shallow slit along the shrimp's back from the head end to the tail. Rinse under cold running water to remove the vein, using the tip of a knife, if necessary.
  • **Use as directed. For surfaces that may come in contact with food, a potable water rinse is required.

Not very good and instructions don't allow the alcohol to cook off. Shrimp came out chewy(wasn't precooked) and the sauce was bland.

Good recipe, repeat requested. I did change a couple things. I used precooked and deveined shrimp, substituted apple juice for the wine and did not marinate but used the marinade as a sauce and ...
