Foodbook #923 Shrimp linguine pasta


Good morning my friends, let's eat a very delicious different pasta for today that I love it , so let’s do It together


1/2 kilo shrimps, Νο 2 frozen
1 vegetable bouillon cube
750 ml water
1 onion
50 ml olive oil
1/2 teaspoon(s) granulated sugar
1 pinch chili flakes
1 clove(s) of garlic, minced
20 ml ouzo
2 tomatoes, ripe
250 g linguine
50 g butter
4-5 basil leaves, finely chopped
1 spring onion, finely chopped
lemon zest, of 1 lemon
olive oil
parmesan cheese, grated



Defrost the 500 g of shrimps.
Remove the heads and shells, but leave the tail intact for a nicer presentation. To devein, use a small, sharp knife to make a shallow slit along the back side of the shrimp from the head to the tail in order to expose the vein and remove.
In a deep pot, add 750 ml water, 1 vegetable bouillon cube and the shrimp heads and tails.
Cover pot, bring to a boil and simmer for 15 minutes.
Do not simmer any longer than this or your stock will become bitter (from the shrimp's acidity).
When ready, drain the stock into a container and set aside until needed.
Place apanover high heat.
Drizzle some olive oil over the shrimp, season with salt and some freshly ground pepper.
When your pan gets nice and hot add the shrimp and saute for 30'' seconds on each side.
Do not cook the shrimp any longer so they can remain soft and juicy.
Transfer to a plate and set aside.
Place pan back over high heat.
Coarsely chop an onion and add it to the pan.
Add 2 tablespoons of olive oil, 1/2 a teaspoon of granulated sugar, a pinch of chili flakes.
Thinly slice 1 clove of garlic and add it to the pan, add 20 ml of ouzo.
While the ouzo evaporates, finely chop 2 ripe tomatoes and into the pan.
Now your can add your stock and your pasta. Start mixing and lower heat to medium high.
Simmer for 10 minutes while stirring often.
When your sauce has thickened, add 50 g of butter and mix, the butter will help thicken your sauce further.
Remove pan from heat.
Add the shrimp, finely chop 4-5 basil leaves and sprinkle over the top, thinly slice 1 spring onion and sprinkle, grate the zest of 1 lemon and mix.
Add some grated parmesan and mix again.
For serving
If you would like to make a special presentation pick up some pasta with a carving fork, twist and place nicely on the middle of a plate.
Add a sprig of basil, some grated parmesan, some freshly ground pepper and for a final touch, drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil.

Stay safe and healthy my friends and take care of your people
