Lime and Chilli Shrimp Fettuccine

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


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)


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.
