Ingredients

  • 400 g fettuccine pasta
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 250 g scampi or prawns
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • a good pinch of pepper
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1 onion
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 250 ml of cream
  • 2 tbsp fresh lemon juice
  • 25 g grated parmesan + extra for sprinkling
  • 3 tbsp chopped parsley

How to prepare shrimp scampi

In a large saucepan, boil water. Season the water with salt. Cook the fettuccine for about 2 minutes. Before you pour off the fettuccine, collect another 250 ml of the pasta water.

If you are using frozen scampi, rinse the scampi with warm water until the ice has dissolved and pat the scampi dry.

Season the scampi with ¼ teaspoon paprika, ¼ teaspoon pepper and ½ teaspoon salt.

Add the olive oil in a large pan and heat. Add the scampi and fry them on both sides for 2 minutes each.

Remove the scampi out from the pan and keep them warm.

Peel the onion and the clove of garlic and chop both into small cubes.

Now melt the butter in this pan and steam the onions until translucent for 3 minutes. Now add the garlic and steam it for 1 minute.

Now delete the onion and garlic mixture with approx. 250 ml of the hot pasta water and bring everything to a boil. When the water is boiling, add the cream, parmesan and lemon juice. The sauce should no longer boil, just simmer it very gently. Season the sauce with paprika, pepper and salt.

Mix the fettuccine with the sauce and stir in the scampi. Sprinkle the scampi pasta with chopped parsley.
