NUTRITION: PER SERVING
FAT: 12.1G (4.8G SATURATED)
CARBOHYDRATES: 71.3G (3.4G SUGARS)
30g unsalted butter
2 tbsp olive oil
90g pack brown shrimp (widely available)
3-4 garlic cloves
Handful fresh chives
To serve (optional)
Bitter leaf salad
Boil the pasta in a large pan of salted water until al dente. Drain, reserving a ladleful of the cooking water.
Meanwhile, heat a sauté pan over a medium-high heat, then add the butter and oil. Once the butter starts to foam, toss in the shrimp. Crush the garlic into the pan and season well. Cook for around 2 minutes or until the garlic smells fragrant, then add the zest and juice of one of the lemons. Taste and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
Stir the pasta and the reserved cooking water through the shrimp mixture. Cook over a low heat for a minute or so to combine the flavours. Finely chop and scatter over the chives, then taste and add more lemon juice if you think it needs it. Serve with a bitter leaf salad, if you like.
