Hands down my favourite pasta at the moment!! It is really easy to prepare and tastes DIVINE!! ♥
PS: ONE CAN SUBSTITUTE THE SHRIMP WITH FINELY JULIENNED CHICKEN FILLET
1 tsp. garlic paste
2 lemons, zest and juice
1 teaspoon red pepper flakes
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pound medium shrimp (approx. 30), peeled, deveined and butterflied
Marinate the above for about half an hour.
1 onion chopped finely
1 pound thin linguini
2 tablespoons butter
1 tbsp. flour
1 cup milk
2 tbsp. sour cream (optional)
1 bunch coriander leaves chopped
2 green chilies chopped (if you can't take too much spice, omit this)
1 tsp. garam masala
salt n pepper to taste
Heat a pan/skillet and add a bit of oil, then fry the shrimp for about 3 minutes on each side, remove n set aside.
In the meantime, boil your pasta and drain.
In the pan you used for frying the shrimp, add the butter and when melted, fry your chopped onions until soft. Add the flour n cook for a couple of minutes then add a bit of salt n pepper, garam masala n the milk. When it thickens slightly, add the coriander n chopped chili, followed by the shrimp. Cook together for a few minutes, add milk if you like a lighter cream (remember that the cream will thicken slightly as it cools so adjust according to your preference). Adjust salt n pepper according to taste
You can now either mix the pasta into the creamy shrimp and serve immediately or you can serve the pasta with the shrimp on the side. Best served immediately! Enjoy!!
