  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 6 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 lb large shrimp peeled and deveined

  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 lb linguine pasta

  • Begin by adding 1 pound of linguine pasta to a pot of salted boiling water. Cook al dente.
  • In the meantime, add 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 6 tablespoons of unsalted butter to a large pan. Bring the heat to medium-high.

  • Pick the heat up to high and add 2 pounds of large raw shrimp that have been peeled and deveined.
  • Mix the shrimp around for about 5-6 minutes or until they are fully cooked through. Season with 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/8 teaspoon black pepper.
  • Then pour in 1/4 cup of fresh lemon juice. Stir for about 1 minute.
  • Drain your cooked pasta and add it to the pan. Turn the heat off and add 1/4 cup of freshly chopped parsley on top.
