I found this recipe in the February 2008 copy of BBC Good Food Magazine. I think it sounds like it would make a nice romantic meal for two or something light and healthy on a summer's evening.

  1. Boil the pasta.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large pan.
  3. Add the shrimp and quickly fry until they are evenly pink.

  7. Toss everything together.
  8. Serve with lemon wedges, if desired.

Overall, it was good. Added a little butter, it turned out for a nice lunch. Made for 1-2-3 hit wonders.

This has great flavor from the shrimp, parsley, and lemon juice, but since its being served over spaghetti I think it needs more of a sauce to it. I added butter with the olive oil in order to give it that sauce texture to go over the spaghetti. All in all, not a bad recipe!!
