I really love summer meals. They tend to be light and fresh and easy to prepare. I have made Citrus and Garlic Shrimp Linguine many times in my nearly 6 years of marriage. My husband and I both really like shrimp and I LOVE anything with lemon. Really…..I love lemon.
Another perk about this, is how quick it is to prepare. From the time I put the noodles in the boiling water to the time I had dinner on the table was just about 20 minutes. That is awesome.
This recipe comes from the Taste Of Home Cookbook. It is in the seafood section. If you don’t have the cookbook, buy it. It is so worth it. I has every tip about cooking I have ever seen and it is really great for trying new meals that are not over the top or difficult to make. But I really love how it teaches all of the basics.
Citrus and Garlic Shrimp Linguine
1 pkg Linguine (1 lb)
½ cup olive oil
½ cup orange juice
⅓ cup lemon juice
3 to 4 garlic cloves, peeled
5 teaspoon grated lemon peel (about 2 small lemons)
4 teaspoon grated orange peel (I just needed about a half an orange)
1 teaspoon salt
¼ teaspoon pepper
1 lb uncooked shrimp, peeled and tail off. (I buy frozen shrimp)
parmesan cheese for garnish
1. Cook linguine according to package.
2. In a blender, combine the olive oil, lemon and orange juice, garlic, grated lemon and orange peel, salt and pepper. Cover and blend well. It will look a bit frothy and smooth.
3. Pour the citrus and garlic mix into a large skillet and heat through over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook for 5 minutes until shrimp is cooked.
4. Drain pasta and toss with shrimp and citrus mixture. Serve with parmesan cheese.
