In our house, we make this shrimp dish often, and especially on Christmas Eve,  which is known as La Vigilia, celebrating the birth of Jesus and serving seven types of seafood.  We serve it as our first course on Christmas Eve.

Besides the holidays, spaghetti with shrimp, olive oil, garlic, and wine is a seafood dish and one you can enjoy cooking all year long.  It’s not only for Christmas Eve. 

 
 

NOTES and TIPS FOR SUCCESS! 

  • First, you can buy any size shrimp at your local fish market, and to save some time in the prep work (which would cost a few pennies more) is to have the shrimp cleaned before you take it home.

  • Then all you will need to do is give the shrimp a good rinse, and allow them to drain in a colander for a few minutes.  And the rest is easy!

  • Fresh ingredients are essential when making this dish incredibly delicious!  Fresh parsley, extra virgin olive oil, fresh garlic, crushed red pepper, and fresh shrimp are all you need to create this fabulous seafood dish. 

  • If you prefer a little more heat, you can add additional red pepper flakes to this recipe.

  • Always use High-Quality olive oil or extra virgin olive oil.  Read the label on the bottle, it should say, olive oil from Italy or Greece, or Spain.  Do not buy olive oil that mentions it’s a “blend of olives from many countries,” it is less quality and not very good tasting.   

  • Oh, and don’t forget the wine!  The sauce is created when the wine is added, so we don’t want to leave that out.  

  • And finally, the last step is tossing the spaghetti into the shrimp sauce.  Then drizzle with additional extra virgin olive oil over the spaghetti and serve!

  1. Super easy and tasty. I made this exactly as written. I served it over pasta for my husband and over broccoli for myself. Next time I think I ll some cayenne or crushed red pepper. We like spicy food.

    1. Thank you, Nala! So happy to meet you, welcome to our blog! We are so glad you enjoyed our recipe, and yes, you may add as much crushed red pepper as you like. Enjoy!

    1. Hi Kelly! Welcome to our blog, it’s so nice to meet you! 🙂 …and yes, that sounds wonderful! I always recommend using a high quality extra virgin olive oil for my recipes, I guess I should do it more often. Thanks again! We love to hear back from you again, so stay in touch!

  2. Made this for dinner the other night. My son LOVED it. Easy to make great summer dish. Only thing I did different was that I added some scallop and oysters that I had on hand in the fridge. Was delicious. A keeper recipe for sure
