Food: Lemon Pasta with Shrimp

More from Chef Kelly.  Outside of peeling and deveining the shrimp, this is a super fast meal to make with just a few ingredients – and it tastes AWESOME.  If you are making this for 2-3 people, you probably want to cut the recipe in half – makes a lot.


  • 2 pounds shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Black pepper
  • 1 lb angel hair pasta
  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons


Preheat the oven to 400F.

Toss the shrimp  with 1 Tbl olive oil, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp pepper on a cookie sheet.  Cook for 6 to 8 minutes.  When they are pink, they are done.

Drizzle a little olive oil in a pot of boiling salted water, add angel hair pasta and cook about 3 minutes. Drain, but save a cup or so of the cooking liquid.

Quickly toss the angel hair with the melted butter, 1/4 cup olive oil, the lemon zest, lemon juice, 2 tsp salt, 1 tsp pepper and 1/2 cup of the reserved cooking liquid. Add the shrimp and eat!
