CREAMY CAJUN SHRIMP PASTA


Ingredients


  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • salt

  • 1 lb linguine

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil

  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste

  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning

  • 2 tablespoons butter

  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

  • ¾ cup heavy cream

  • ¼ cup dry white wine

  • ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley

Instructions


  • Cook the linguine according to package directions, and save one cup of the cooking water. Drain and return pasta to the pot. Add just a drizzle of olive oil to prevent it from sticking.

  • Season shrimp with salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning

  • In a large saucepan, heat the olive oil, and once hot, cook shrimp until just pink, about 2 minutes. Remove from the pan and transfer to a plate.

  • Using the same saucepan, melt the butter and whisk in the flour. Cook it until it is slightly golden.

  • Whisk in the white wine and the heavy cream. Keep whisking to prevent lumps for forming, and cook for about a minute.

  • Whisk in the reserved pasta water and Parmesan cheese. Season with salt and pepper

  • At this time, mix in the linguine

  • Return the cooked shrimp to the pan and add the chopped parsley. Mix everything together and check the seasoning for salt.
