15 Minutes for a Garlic Shrimp Pasta Dinner

Angel hair is great to accompany this lemon garlic shrimp because it cooks so quickly and so do shrimp. Even large shrimp only take a couple minutes to cook through.

To save chopping time, and because I don’t like biting into little pieces of garlic no matter how small I mince it, I used garlic powder.

Feel free to chop a clove or two of garlic and sauté it with the butter if you prefer garlic cloves.

How Does The Lemon Butter Garlic Shrimp with Angel Hair Pasta Taste

The angel hair pasta is perfectly al dente and wonderfully buttery. The shrimp are juicy, plump, and have so much flavor from the garlic. Make sure you don’t overcook them so they’re not rubbery or tough.

The lemon adds a wonderful brightness to the dish and is a perfect compliment to shrimp.

And anything tossed in butter automatically tastes great.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 8 ounces angel hair pasta, cooked according to package directions (half of a 1-pound box)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick)
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled, de-veined, and cleaned with tails off (I prefer 12-15 count shrimp)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, optional

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions, drain, and set aside.
  2. To a large skillet, add the butter and heat over medium-high heat to melt.
  3. Stir in the garlic powder.
  4. Add the shrimp, season with salt and pepper, and cook for about 2 to 3 minutes total, or until just pink and cooked through. Flip shrimp halfway through cooking. Cooking time will vary based on size of shrimp and pan used; don’t overcook or shrimp will become rubbery and tough.
  5. Add the lemon juice, optional lemon zest, and stir briefly to combine.
  6. Turn the heat to low, add the pasta to skillet with the shrimp, and toss to combine and coat. Taste, check for seasoning balance, and make any desired tweaks (add more salt, pepper, garlic powder, lemon juice, etc.). Serve immediately. Dish is best warm and fresh, but will keep airtight in the fridge for up to 3 days. Reheat gently prior to serving.
