For the Shrimp:
2lbsshrimpany size you prefer, I used 15-21 peeled and deveined
1teaspoonlemon juice 1 lemon
For the Pasta:
2garlic large cloves minced
Cook the pasta according to the package directions. In the meantime toss the shrimp with all the spices and lemon juice, and saute them over high heat in a nonstick skillet for 5 minutes. Set aside.
In another skillet, saute the garlic and olive oil for the pasta and then add in the cooked pasta to the skillet with about 1/2 cup of the pasta water and the feta cheese. Toss to create a sauce.
Serve the pasta and top with the shrimp, then sprinkle any additional toppings over it. Enjoy :)
When sauteeing the garlic, make sure it doesn't turn brown. This would make it taste bitter.
Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package but start checking it 2 minutes early to avoid overcooking.
Feel free to use smoked Spanish paprika in this recipe for more depth of flavor and a sweet and smoky note.
