Garlicky Spaghetti and Baby Shrimp

Garlicky Spaghetti and Baby Shrimp

My kids all time favorite for a quick lunch. El dente spaghetti enrobed in a seriously garlicky and black pepper butter.  Did I say enrobed?! YES!! They are buttery slick!  Yum! With empty plates and buttery smiles they get back to their keyboards and punch away…

Recipe For Garlicky Noodles and Baby Shrimp

6 tablespoons salted butter, or more if you like

11 oz pre cooked baby shrimp, thawed and water squeezed out

1 teaspoon heaped fresh garlic, chopped to a pulp

8 oz spaghetti cooked until en dente

Freshly cracked black pepper

Chiffonade of parsley or a sprig of parsley would do.\

Heat 2 tablespoons of butter in a wide skillet.

 Stir fry the baby shrimp for  a couple of minutes on high heat and set aside.

In the same skillet, melt the butter on medium heat.

Toss in garlic and fry for a few minutes, being careful not to burn it.

Tumble in the cooked spaghetti and continue to fold over with a tong, making sure each strand is enrobed in butter.

Divide the spaghetti into two bowls, top with the shrimp and loads of cracked pepper.

Garnish with anything green really!

Pronto a mangiare!!

Summer is in full swing, the farmers markets are buzzing and garlic scapes are plenty! ¬†An overdose of garlic scapes seemed possible in my realm of things but alas I warn you it was not. ¬†Even after two weeks of continuous garlic escapades, I can’t seem to get enough of these very fragrant and pungent ¬†herbs. ¬†Wait a minute, did I say herb. ¬†Is it a herb or is it a vegetable I ask?

Hi my dear friends and fellow bloggers!

Again… it has been a tad bit too long since I wrote to you last. ¬†As I mentioned in my previous post I was working on “Project Ghee”, well I don’t think I called it that exactly … but it sure does sound good right now ūüôā

Anyway, let me tell you what I’ve been up too. ¬†I’ve been preoccupied with ‘GHEE’, now I’m sure you shaking your head and thinking, “Really Shamim, like you had to tell us that!” (sarcasm intended) ¬†Well, of course it’s ghee. ¬†Ghee all the way baby!

Since the beginning of this year, Continue reading

I believe I do owe you an apology for not writing as often as I should.

But … for now… I have to make up for my absence with this absolutely wonderful recipe for a super moist and dense almond chocolate cupcake topped with a creamy and decadent bittersweet chocolate ganache. ¬†If you’re like me, and just cannot¬†wait long enough for the cake too cool down before frosting it, you’re in luck baby. ¬†This is the recipe for you! ¬†I highly recommend you give it a try. ¬†It takes a jiffy to make and bakes up in about 15 mins.

As the cake takes it’s short warm ride in the oven. ¬†You will have already whipped up the chocolate ganache to top it. ¬†And in the time it takes for the cupcakes to cool, you may pour yourself a cuppa and gaze dreamily out the window sniffing in the warm chocolaty aroma emanating throughout your serene little kitchen.
