 I am not sure if I have said it or not, but you may have noticed the lack of seafood recipes here. Not only am I allergic to seafood, but I am also not a fan of it for many, many reasons! However, sometimes I do cook it (careful not to actually touch it) because my husband enjoys it, and so does his family. I don't think I have made anything seafood since probably last Christmas, so when the hubby asked if I would make a pasta dish with shrimp and peas, I just had to say yes.

This was a fairly easy recipe, and I bought frozen, pre cooked, devained and shelled shrimp (just had the tails on), so that I wouldn't actually need to touch them. I am super paranoid that I will touch the fish and then forget and touch my face, or worse yet, touch food that I then eat....ugh, the thought of it gives me the willies!

I had to make some alterations to this recipe because I am pretty sure that it was meant to have fresh shrimp. I started off with some butter in the pan and sauteed the shrimp...but because the shrimp then defrosted, I was left with tons of water in the pan...not to worry, I just drained most of the water, through in 2 tbsp of butter and 2 tbsp of flour and created a little rue! This recipe is so simple...just adding cream, a little wine, angel hair pasta, after its cooked, salt, pepper, dried basil, and its good to go!

Ingredients

8 ozs Uncooked angel hair pasta, broken into pieces

2 tbs Butter, plus 2 tbs for rue if using frozen shrimp

2 tbsp flour, if using frozen shrimp

1 lb. Peeled and deveined shrimp

Garlic clove crushed

1/2 cup Fat free half-and-half

1/4 cup white wine

1/3 cup Chopped fresh basil, divided or you can use 1tbsp dried basil

3/4 tsp Salt

1/4 tsp Fresh ground black pepper

1/3 cup Preshredded fresh Parmesan cheese

1 1/2 cups Frozen green peas

 

Cook pasta according to the package instructions. In the mean time, melt butter into a large skillet and sautee shrimp...about 4 minutes. If you used frozen shrimp, drain excess water and then create a rue with extra butter and flour. Add half and half, wine, basil, salt and pepper. Bring to a simmer and cook for 4 minutes, uncovered. Add cheese and peas. Cook about 2 mins. Then add the angel hair and toss to coat!
