Butter Garlic Shrimp Pasta Recipe

I love creating new dishes whenever possible. This butter garlic shrimp pasta recipe is perfect if you have shrimp you want to use up! I have several other shrimp recipes from Sicilian Shrimp Risotto with broiled tomatoes to Shrimp Alfredo.

Butter Garlic Pasta Recipe

What you will need to make this Butter Garlic Shrimp Pasta Recipe:

1 stick unsalted butter, divided

1 1/2 pounds medium shrimp, peeled

Salt & pepper to taste

5 cloves garlic, minced

1/4 cup chicken stock

Juice of 1 lemon, to taste

2 tablespoons chopped fresh parsley leaves

2 tablespoons of cornstarch

3-4 mushrooms, diced

Shrimp Pasta

Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium high heat. Add shrimp, salt and pepper, to taste. Cook, stirring occasionally, until pink, about 2-3 minutes; set aside. Add garlic to the skillet, and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in chicken stock, mushrooms and lemon juice. Bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer until reduced by half, about 1-2 minutes. Stir in remaining 6 tablespoons butter, 1 tablespoon at a time, until melted and smooth. Then add corn starch to thicken into a sauce like consistency. Stir in shrimp and gently toss to combine. Garnish with Parsley, serve and enjoy!

    This looks amazing! Personally, I would leave the mushrooms out (not a fan) but other than that the dish looks delicious. I'll have to try!
