Recipe Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) package angel hair pasta
  • 1 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon granulated garlic
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper
  • ¼ cup grapeseed oil, divided
  • ¼ cup unsalted butter, divided
  • 1 ¼ cups chicken broth
  • ¼ cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio
  • ¼ cup whipping cream
  • 1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh parsley (optional)

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook angel hair pasta in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain.
  2. 2 Meanwhile, butterfly shrimp, and lightly press open.
  3. 3 Mix flour, salt, garlic, and black pepper in a shallow dish. Reserve 2 tablespoons flour mixture and set aside. Dredge shrimp in flour mixture until well coated, shaking off excess flour.
  4. 4 Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil and allow to get hot. Melt 2 tablespoons butter in the hot oil, add shrimp, and cook until shrimp are bright pink on the outside and the meat is opaque, 3 to 5 minutes. Transfer shrimp to a pan lined with a drip rack and keep warm.
  5. 5 Heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil in the same skillet and stir in reserved flour mixture. Stir and cook for 1 to 2 minutes, but be careful so it doesn't burn. Add chicken broth and white wine. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, reduce heat, and add cream and lemon juice. Stir and cook until sauce has slightly thickened, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove skillet from heat and stir in remaining 2 tablespoons butter until melted.
  6. 6 Divide pasta into serving bowls, top with lemon sauce, and 4 to 5 shrimp per serving. Garnish with chopped parsley.
