Lime and Chilli Shrimp Fettuccine

Here is my twist on Shrimp Fettuccine. Dinner in 30 minutes, for less than $10.

Ingredients:

1lb Cooked Large Shrimp
1/2 box Fettuccine (the whole box for more than 2 people) 
1 Cup White Wine
1 Tbsp Minced Garlic
3 Tbsp Butter
2 Tbsp Lime Juice
2 Tbsp Olive Oil
1Tbsp Chilli powder
1Tsp Adobo or Seafood Seasoning
Dried Parsley
Your Choice of Pepper (black pepper, white, crushed dried, fresh scotch bonnet, jalapeno)

Method:

Thaw and season shrimp with chilli powder. Bring water to boil in a deep pot and add pasta, cook for 6 minutes. Heat olive oil and saute garlic, wine, butter, and lime juice for 3-4 minutes. Add shrimp and let simmer for 4 minutes. Be sure to flip the shrimp to heat evenly. Drain pasta and save a cup of the water in case you want more sauce in the end.  Add pasta, adobo, pepper and parsley to shrimp, stir and cover for another 2 minutes. Add pasta water if needed and simmer until you get your desired amount of sauce.

I hope you'll enjoy this quick and easy meal. This pairs well with a glass of Pinot Grigio or Riesling.
