When I get tempted to go to an expensive seafood restaurant, I often just make this shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce dish instead. Now here's the shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce recipe. Enjoy:

Ingredients for making shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce

For two:

1. 1/2-1lb of thawed or fresh raw peel on shrimp

(I buy the Harris Teeter brand H.T. Traders EZ Peel Raw Shrimp. It is a product of Thailand and offer 31-40 count per pound. I typically buy a 2lb bag and use less than half a bag at a time when cooking for two. The cost can range from 7.99-9.99.)

3oz of meat or seafood is a typical serving but this recipe is much more generous portion.

A 3oz portion of the shrimp would be 80calories, 1g fat, 18g protein, 165mg cholesterol. We've got to love it for all that protein but want to watch the cholesterol.

Now, I know that I'm contradicting myself with the next ingredient for the shrimp fettuccine, butter!

2. 1/4 stick of unsalted butter

3. garlic

4. parsley, basil and/or oregano

5. paprika

5. Old Bay seafood seasoning

6. extra virgin olive oil

7. fettuccine made from semolina (I also use Harris Teeter H.T. Traders brand, imported from Italy, here.)

To keep costs of ingredients for the shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce low, you might want to use all of your own local supermarket brands.

Approximately 7oz. of pasta was used in this shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce recipe. Again, be vigilant if watching portion control. A proper serving the pasta for one person is only 2oz, with 210cal, 1g fat, 44g carb, 2g dietary fiber, 2g sugar, 7g protein.

For this shrimp fettuccine recipe, each individual person is served 3.5oz pasta, not 2oz. Reduce food portions as you desire.

Note that the butter and olive oil will add fat to the pasta dish.

Instructions for making shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce

  • Preparing the fettuccine for the shrimp fettuccine with garlic butter sauce dish:
  1. On another burner of your stove, you can simultaneously begin preparing the fettuccine pasta.
  2. Put 4 quarts of salted water to a rapid boil in a fairly deep pot and then add the fettuccine.
  3. It will stick out of the top of the pot at first, but as it softens it will all be submerged in the water.
  4. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  5. Allow the fettuccine pasta to cook for at least 8-10 minutes to proper soft consistency.
  6. Next, drain the pasta in a colander, before serving onto plates.
  7. You will place the pasta in the plates first, before adding the shrimp on top.
  • While the fettucine pasta is being given its time to cook, we can turn our attention back to the shrimp. The shrimp should have turned from silver / gray to pink by now, evidence that it is cooked.
  1. High heat should be reduced to low-medium at this time, an we can add generous dashes of all the spices listed above.
  2. Be especially generous with the garlic, amounting to approx. 11/2 tablespoons.
