Easy Lemony Butter Shrimp Pasta

This is probably one of our favorite meals during the busy work week.  So simple, affordable and delicious. Just a quick tip when buying shrimp: be sure to buy the most sustainable shrimp and look for certifications.  STAY AWAY from shrimp that has been peeled and deveined before freezing.  It can cause a loss of flavor and texture. What’s the point of buying shrimp if we can’t taste it, right?

Instead of throwing away the shrimp shells and cause a smelly/stinky house, you can put them to use in broth to boil your pasta. This will boost the ocean flavors of your pasta.

    My husband would love this because he eats shrimp every chance he gets. I’ve seen the shells boiled to make stock, but I’ve never done it myself. Thanks for the tip.

    Wow. I love shrimp! This looks like a simple recipe but I am on a dairy-free diet. Is there a substitute to the butter? Also, can I use another kind of pasta? I haven’t tried using udon. Oh, and I have to check if it’s dairy-free too. LOL. I guess I’d be trying lots of food again after a few months. Whew!

    I love a simple pasta and I love shrimp! I make this very often actually, and my kids love it too! I also add in some fresh basil for more flavour!

    This sounds delicious. I would give this one a try but I don’t think my husband would enjoy it. He isn’t a huge fan of veggies.

    I love the flavors of lemon and butter with shrimp. I’m just too nervous to make it myself. Seafood and I have a love-hate relationship.
