Instructions 

  • Cook the pasta before you start cooking the shrimp. Drain well and set aside.
  • Peel and de-vein the shrimp. Rinse the shrimp in cold water and pat dry with a paper towel. Place shrimp in a single layer on a plate.
  • Season shrimp with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the shrimp with an even layer of the Blackened fish seasoning. Flip shrimp over and repeat.
  • In a large sauté pan heat the olive oil on medium high.
  • Place the shrimp in a single layer in the sauté pan.
  • Cook uncovered for 1-3 minutes depending on the size of the shrimp. Larger shrimp will need to cook for about 2-3 minutes on the first side.
  • Turn the shrimp over and add the chopped garlic to the pan.
  • Cook for another 2-3 minutes until the shrimp is cooked through. Do not overcook. Return to the heat if not completely cooked and cook for 2 more minutes.
  • Add the cooked pasta to the pan and toss. Remove pan from heat and serve immediately.

Notes

  • Shrimp are done when they turn a bright pink color and are cooked through the center. If unsure remove a large shrimp from the pan, remove the pan from the heat and test the shrimp for doneness. Shrimp should be tender.
  • The best shrimp recipes are made with fresh shrimp.
  • Do not over cook the shrimp. Shrimp cooks very fast. Cook the shrimp just until it is opaque white in color or bright pink in the case of Florida pink shrimp.
