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.

  • All you will need to do is give the shrimp a good rinse, and then allow to drain in a colander for a few minutes.  And then 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 is all you need to create this fabulous seafood dish. 

  • 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 serve!

    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
