A spicy twist on scampi. You can use spaghetti or fettuccine in place of the linguine if you prefer. If you like lots of sauce, double it. The recipe comes from Southern Living.

I cooked this tonight for my girlfriend and myself. She's not keen on hot stuff all of the time, so I cut out the spice. I added another Tbs of olive oil so that there would be enough to coat the angel hair that I used in the recipe. Gf felt like it needed a bit more butter for flavor.

Anyway, loved it. I think that this would go very well with Swai or Tilapia, too.

I tried this recipe from Southern is excellent; however, if I were to make it again, I would only use 1-2 teaspoons of the chipotle chile in adobo sauce. This dish is excellent with either chicken or italian sausage for those who don't like seafood.
