Shrimp cooks so quickly on the stove and with a little butter, olive oil, minced garlic and a pinch of crushed red pepper and salt the flavor of the shrimp comes alive.

Mix the cooked shrimp, sauteéd garlic and seasoned oil in with cooked fettuccine and you’ve got a fabulous meal.

When cooking for one, I find that keeping bags of frozen shrimp and frozen chicken breasts or thighs in my freezer to be a really great idea.  Having these items on hand make it easy to make a delicious meal at the end of a long day.  Simply use what you need and know with confidence that by keeping these items in your freezer, you can enjoy a delicious meal any time.

Enjoy!

  1. I’ve been cooking with Shrimp a lot lately and this looks like a delicious recipe. Fettuccine is one of my favorite meals!

    I’ve been finding it really difficult to plan meals out for just me, so I’m glad I’ve come across these one person recipes!

  2. When my husband travels I usually rely on cereal for dinner – this is a MUCH better option! It’ looks so delicious and creamy, and I usually always have these ingredients on hand. So nice! Look forward to hearing more about your upcoming news!

  3. Hi Joanie! This sounds incredible! Shrimp and garlic! I’m in! Thanks for sharing this recipe and I’m curious to read about the project that you’re working on. 🙂
