DIRECTIONS

  • For Emeril's Essence: Combine thoroughly all ingredients together. Makes 2/3 cup. Set aside. Six tablespoons needed for recipe, divided.
  • Place the shrimp and 3 tablespoons Essence (I used less) in a large resealable plastic bag and shake. Place the bag in the refrigerator while you prepare the sauce. (To control some of the heat, use less than the 3 tablespoons specified. It can always be sprinkled on afterwards.).
  • Heat a deep 3-quart skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tablespoon olive oil and the andouille sausage. Saute sausage for 2 minutes, stirring often. Add onions and saute for 2 minutes. Add crushed red pepper flakes (may want to use less) and garlic and cook 1 minute. Add Worcestershire sauce.
  • In the meantime, cook the pasta in boiling salted water according to package instructions.
  • To the skillet, add cream, milk, remaining 3 tablespoon Essence (or less), black pepper, chili powder and salt, if additional salt is needed. Stir to a consistent color. Add butter and stir until melted. Stir in Parmigiano cheese until melted. Lower heat to a simmer.
  • Heat the remaining olive oil in another large skillet over high heat and add the shrimp. Saute shrimp for 1 to 2 minutes per side or until they just start to turn pink.
  • Add the cooked and drained pasta to the first skillet with Alfredo. Stir to combine and blend flavors, about 1 minute. Place into a large pasta bowl and top with shrimp.
  • Sprinkle with parsley.
