Gluten-Free Lemon Garlic Shrimp Linguine Recipe

Yields: 4 servings

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Ingredients:

  • 12 oz gluten-free linguine pasta
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (like Sauvignon Blanc or Pinot Grigio)
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice (freshly squeezed)
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Lemon zest, for garnish

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta: Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook the linguine according to package directions until al dente. Reserve 1/2 cup of pasta water before draining the pasta.
  • Prepare the shrimp: While the pasta cooks, pat the shrimp dry with a paper towel. Season the shrimp with salt and pepper.
  • Cook the shrimp: Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until pink and cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  • Make the sauce: In the same skillet, add the garlic and cook for 30 seconds, or until fragrant. Deglaze the pan with the white wine, scraping up any browned bits. Pour in the lemon juice and let it simmer for 1 minute.
  • Finish the dish: Add the butter to the sauce and swirl it until melted. Add the cooked shrimp, drained pasta, and some reserved pasta water (start with about 1/4 cup) to the skillet. Toss everything together until the pasta is coated in the sauce. If it seems dry, add a bit more pasta water.
  • Garnish and serve: Stir in the fresh parsley and season with more salt and pepper if needed. Garnish with lemon zest and serve immediately.

Tips:

  • Dairy-free option: Replace the butter with a dairy-free alternative for the sauce.
  • Make it spicy: Add a pinch of red pepper flakes for an extra kick.
  • Zucchini noodles: Use zucchini noodles (zoodles) instead of pasta for a lower-carb version.
  • Additional veggies: Feel free to add other vegetables like spinach, cherry tomatoes, or asparagus to your pasta dish.
