My wife and I LOVE garlic, and garlic and shrimp go so well together that I just had to come up with this one; goes great with a tossed salad and crusty French bread. Although Parmesan with shrimp isn't authentic, it goes well with this because of all the garlic.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix cornstarch with broth in a small bowl, stir until combined, and set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil and butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat until butter sizzles.
  3. Saute onion and garlic until onion is translucent and begins to brown. Do not let garlic brown.
  4. Add shrimp, parsley, lemon juice, and cayenne pepper. Stir and toss until shrimp is cooked through and turns pink, about 5 minutes.
  5. Stir broth mixture again, and add to pan. Stir to combine, reduce heat to medium, and continue cooking until sauce begins to thicken.
  6. Add cooked fettuccine, balsamic vinegar and Parmesan cheese. Toss to combine, and serve immediately with additional Parmesan cheese on the side.

The shrimp was good, the noodles weren't. i made shrimp sandwiches with ritz crackers.

We liked this a lot but I think I would add some salt and pepper and a touch more of the cayenne next time. I also wasn't sure when to add the basil so I added it with the shrimp and parsley. I used dried parsley so I used a little less. We all added the extra parmesan cheese! Thanks for a nice dinner!
