In this Italian classic, juicy shrimp simmer in white wine, garlic and butter and are then served over tender linguine pasta. Stovetop - 10 minutes if thawed, 15 minutes if frozen.
Preparation: Thaw completely. If shrimp is frozen or partially frozen, defrost slightly in microwave. Do not over-microwave, or shrimp will become tough.
Cooking Instructions: Heat skillet on medium-high heat. Place shrimp mixture in skillet, bring to a simmer, and cook 5-8 minutes or until butter is melted and shrimp turns pink. Do not over-cook or shrimp will be tough. Meanwhile, in large saucepan, bring 2 quarts water and 1 teaspoon salt (if desired) to a boil. Add linguine and boil 6-8 minutes or until tender. Drain pasta and place on platter. Top with shrimp and sauce.
Suggested Sides: Steamed asparagus, dinner rolls, green salad
