Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo

Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo Recipe

Pinit

You may have read in my 20 questions post on Monday that I’m still slightly intimidated by seafood. We just never really fixed it at my house growing up, mainly because my mom and Sister Spice don’t really like fish, although they do enjoy shrimp and some seafood. Anyway, I have vowed to learn to make some good seafood and I thought I would start small – with frozen shrimp.

I bought a huge bag of frozen shrimp at the grocery store, and thawed some for this recipe, although you could probably use fresh shrimp. We are really excited about how well this recipe turned out – it was delicious! It was definitely encouraging, and I look forward to trying some more shrimp recipes in the near future!

Shrimp Fettucine Alfredo

Recipe Ingredients

  • 4 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup half and half
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1.5 cups small to medium shrimp, peeled and deveined – I used frozen shrimp that had been thawed
  • 1-2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 6 Tablespoons parmesan
  • 8 oz noodles – fettucine, linguine, or spaghetti would work (we used whole wheat linguine)
  • Lemon and parsley to garnish

Note: This recipe was only enough to feed myself and Mr. Herb, though we did both get second helpings :-) Also, for those of you who are mushroom-averse (looking at you, Mrs. 1500!) you can definitely leave the mushrooms out! Just skip the part about adding the next 2 tablespoons of butter and mushrooms to saute, and go directly into adding half and half and Parmesan. Enjoy!

Then add additional 2 tablespoons butter and mushrooms to skillet and saute for an additional 3 minutes. This is a good time to also start a pot of water to boil for your noodles.

Next add the half and half and Parmesan, stirring together. Let this simmer over low to medium heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. While this is simmering, add noodles to your pot of boiling water. Cook noodles for 8-10 minutes.

Sauce should be thickened by the time your noodles are done and your meal ready to go! Note: If your sauce isn’t thickening, you can add a tablespoon or so of flour or cornstarch to help it along. Serve the shrimp and mushroom alfredo mixture over the linguine noodles! Garnish with chopped parsley and lemon as desired.
