Seasoned Shrimp
  • 1 lb shrimp, cleaned and deveined
  • 1-2 tsp Old Bay Blackened seasoning
Alfredo Sauce
  • ½ cup salted butter
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 ½ cups whipping cream (35%)
  • 1 cup of grated Parmesan cheese
  • 500-600 grams of fresh fettucine noodles or dry

  1. Cook the noodles in a large pot of salted boiling water until they are al dente, around 5-6 minutes. For dry pasta, follow the package instructions.

  2. Combine the butter and minced garlic in a large skillet. Fry the garlic for 2-3 minutes until fragrant. 

  3. Add in the whipping cream and then bring to a low simmer. Simmer for 5 minutes or so, reducing the liquid.

  5. When it’s almost done, sprinkle the shrimp with the seasoning and then fry the shrimp quickly in a small frying pan until pink all the way through. Shrimp cook in around 4-5 minutes.

  6. To plate, place the a sauce covered noodles on the plate and top with shrimp.
