Ingredients

  • 1 lb. shrimp shells removed, deveined
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 8 oz. mushrooms sliced (I used presliced)
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes
  • 1/2 cup peas frozen
  • 1/2 pound linguine
  • 2 lemons zest of half a lemon, juice of half a lemon. Slice the other lemon in half and grill,
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1/8-1/4 tsp red pepper flakes use to your taste
  • 1/2 cup white wine dry white wine

Instructions

  • Put a large pot of water on to boil. When it comes to a rapid boil, add a tablespoon of salt. Return to a boil and add the pasta.
  • Next heat a skillet over medium heat. Add the butter and when it is hot and foaming add the mushrooms. Allow to caramelize on each side - about three minutes per side.
  • Now add the tomatoes and garlic - be careful, the garlic burns easily! Sauté for about one minute. 
  • Next add the shrimp and season with salt, pepper and red pepper flakes. Cook until golden on side one, flip on side two. Be careful, do not over cook!
  • Wait until the shrimp are golden brown before turning.
  • Drizzle in the wine and heat thru. Remove from heat and add the lemon juice and zest. Toss to combine.
  • Next add the pasta combine everything really well. Toss it together several times. Add in the frozen peas last, toss again. No need to cook them - the heat from the meal will warm the peas perfectly!
