We Love Shrimp!! For the first 20 years of my marriage, my husband would not eat any shrimp. Until one day I enticed him with some bacon wrapped shrimp. Of course if it had not been for that bacon, he would have never tried it, ha, ha, ha....thank goodness. Little by little I introduced shrimp in different dishes I would prepare, and every time he tried it, he loved it a little more. Now, he could eat shrimp several times a week if I let him!.Pairing pasta and shrimp is a quick, filling, and tasty meal!
Yields 4 servings
8 ounces angel hair pasta
12 ounces large shrimp, cleaned
1 medium red bell pepper, sliced thin
1 small white onion, sliced thin
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 chipotle peppers in adobo, minced
2 tablespoons adobo sauce from chipotles
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
Salt and pepper
Lemon wedges, for garnish
1. After cleaning shrimp, season with salt, pepper and smoked paprika, cover and keep chilled.
2. In a large pot, heat water to cook pasta. When it comes to a boil, season with salt (about 3 tablespoons), add pasta, cook for 7 to 9 minutes.
3. While pasta is cooking, in a separate saute pan, heat 3 tablespoons of olive oil to medium/high heat, add onions and cook for 3 minutes. Add the red peppers, garlic, chipotles, adobo, tomato paste, and cook for 1 more minute. Add shrimp and cook for a few minutes, stirring well to combine. Add the drained angel hair pasta, 1/4 cup pasta water and season with another pinch of salt and pepper.
4. Serve with lemon wedges, freshly grated Parmesan cheese, a salad, and your favorite artisan breads.
