Cajun Shrimp Scampi

Ingredients :


12 raw shrimp (as many as you like; I prefer a lot of shrimp in my pasta)

1 pound of pasta (preferably linguine)

2 garlic cloves, minced

2 tbsp. melted butter

a half-cup of thick cream

parmesan cheese, shredded

basil, 1/8 tsp

season with salt and pepper to taste

sifted flour (to thicken)

seasoning with cajun spices

a quarter cup of parsley

a glass of white wine (not shown)

extra virgin olive oil (not shown)




Using medium-high heat, heat a saucepan. Bring to a boil with butter, a sprinkle of olive oil, and a splash of white wine.

Cook for another 2 minutes after adding the garlic.

Toss in the shrimps.

Combine the heavy cream, basil, parsley, salt, and pepper in a mixing bowl.

Bring to a boil, then whisk in a couple of tablespoons of flour until the sauce thickens.

Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the shrimp once more.

Toss the shrimp in the sauce to coat them, then serve over spaghetti. Using parmesan cheese as a topping,
