Shrimp Linguine With Basil-Garlic Butter

Shrimp Linguine With Basil-Garlic Butter created by PanNan

I got this recipe off of another site but modified it quite a bit to suit our tastes. It is very easy and will certainly impress company or make a nice dish for a romantic meal! The key is to use fresh herb in this dish. Serve with a good crusty bread, green salad and a nice white wine.

    I’ve made this recipe many times. Its so easy and very tasty! I double the garlic, season my shrimp before cooking and add a good cheese like Parmigiana Reggiano at the end!

    This dish is too bland. While it could be acceptable on a night when you lack time and need something quick, it is definitely not something for a special dinner or for entertaining. In any case, it lacks zing and needs something such as lemon juice or whipping cream for flavor (maybe some diced tomatoes?). Otherwise, it is simply too bland. Sorry but this recipe won't be repeated in our household.
  3. The Bread of Life
    This was a good dish. I have to admit that I didn't have fresh basil, and had to use basil from the spice rack. However, my husband doesn't care for too much fresh basil anyway. I had to add a little salt, some fresh lemon juice, and red pepper flakes to add some flavor to the sauce. I also tossed in some pine nuts. I would have preferred a bit more sauce in the dish. I would probably even double the sauce for a second go around (and I'll use fresh basil, too).

    I only used 1/2 lb. of shrimp, but other than that, made the recipe as stated. The next time, I'll probably use less linguine or double the sauce. DH and I both thought it was a bit dry, but it was delicious.
