Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add linguini pasta, and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup liquid.

  • Heat the olive oil and chili oil in a wok over medium-high heat. Mix in the shrimp, pea pods, and garlic. Cook and stir 2 minutes, until shrimp are almost opaque. Remove from heat, and set aside.

  • Pour the wine into the wok, and bring to a boil. Cook until reduced by 1/3. Return shrimp, peas, and garlic to the wok, and stir in the reserved pasta water. Continue to cook and stir until shrimp are opaque. Remove wok from heat, and mix in the butter, lemon juice, and basil. Toss with the cooked pasta to serve.

Fresh and light but teeters on the edge of blandness. Marinate the shrimp first and season the dish well. Read More

The SigO and I agreed this was a little bland. It was a good start but - for our tastes - was missing something. But it was quick and easy to make - we need recipes like that in our busy lives. The next day I reheated the leftovers in a skillet - adding this time some butter, a much bigger dose of chili oil, some cayenne and a few more shakes (didn't have fresh) basil. I loved it the second go-around. This is a keeper, thanks, but next time I think I will really kick up the heat. Read More

I thought it was on the bland side, but my the family enjoyed it (shellfish deprived- I guess). I did a Greek twist by substituting fresh dill for basil, adding 2 cloves of minced garlic and upped the veggie quotient by adding slivered vidalia onions and red pepper matchsticks. I topped it off with a few Tbs of low fat feta (perfect for South Beach Dieters) and served it over orzo for the non-SBDs. Read More

I will make this again. I made the dish using these substitutions. Bow tie pasta for the linguini. Added crushed red pepper to the olive oil for the chili oil. Precooked shrimp. Chicken broth for the dry white wine, but only used 1/2 cup - not reduced. As in a previous review - this is 4-5 serving dish. Read More

this recipe is good but a little too bland for my taste. I know it's suppost to be a less creamy sauce so I wanted to try something different because I usually like a more creamy or marinara sauce. I suggest that for those of you who love creamy sauce or marinara sauce to not try this recipe. Read More
