Fast & Easy Shrimp Fettuccine

Since my husband is a shrimp lover, I’m always looking for good go-to shrimp recipes. So when I had a couple pounds in my freezer to use up before it turned bad, I created this delicious Fast & Easy Shrimp Fettuccine recipe.

This Shrimp Fettuccine is so fast and easy to make, you can make any night feel special. It’s packed with flavor too. This is just perfect to make for Valentine’s Day, date night, or any night. It takes from start to finish in right around 20-minutes. Really!

I recently told a young guy I work with that he should make this for one of his dates. I basically told him that a guy that cooks for a lady is very rare and he’ll look good!  I also told him there’s a lot of garlic in this dish, but as long as you BOTH eat it you’ll be fine. LOL! Add in a vegetable, like asparagus or broccoli, to round out your meal. It takes it to another level.  Also, this recipe is versatile and can be easily tweaked for smaller or larger crowd’s (recipe is written for 6 people).

I’m not joking either. It’s ridiculously fast & easy to make. Let me show you how to make this Fast & Easy Shrimp Fettuccine.

Step 1 Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
Step 2 Boil a large pot of water and add about one tablespoon of kosher salt. Let the water come up to a boil.
Step 3 Rinse and drain your shrimp. You can keep tails on like I did or remove them.
Step 4 Add your rinsed and drained shrimp to a baking sheet. Next, thinly slice one lemon and finely chop 5 garlic cloves. Add the garlic to the shrimp and mix about to distribute. Then add the lemon slices on top of the garlic and shrimp.
Step 5 Slice your stick of butter and distribute throughout the baking sheet. Next, sprinkle the dried parsley over the top of the butter. Lastly, drizzle over top with the olive oil. If you like, sprinkle with a bit of kosher salt.
Step 6 Roast the shrimp at 350°F (175°C) for 15-minutes.
Step 7 Place your fettuccine noodles into the boiling water. Move it about a bit to make sure they are fully submerged in the hot water. Cook the pasta 1 minute shy of the package instructions.
Step 8 Half way through cooking the shrimp (when there is about 7 minutes remaining), give it a good stir. Spread it back out on the pan and place the lemon slices back on top again.
Step 9 Once the pasta is done, drain it and place the pasta back into the pot.
Step 10 Remove the shrimp from the oven and remove and discard the lemon slices. Immediately pour the shrimp, garlic and butter over the cooked pasta. Stir to combine and serve immediately.
