Quick Weeknight Dinner Recipe: Shrimp Linguine White Wine Tomatoes @fifteenspatulas

Have you ever felt like after traveling for a while, all you want to do is be home and cook your own meal? After getting home last night from almost two weeks of travel, despite the fact that it was pushing 8pm, I made a quick run to the grocery store to cook my own meal for dinner instead of eating out somewhere. Eating out is fun, but there’s something better about a home cooked meal.

This linguine recipe with shrimp, white wine, and tomatoes is one of my tried and true go-to recipes for dinner. If I don’t know what to make, it’s one of the recipes that comes to mind since the ingredients are so simple and I always have shrimp ready to thaw in the freezer.

To get started, peel a pound of 21/25 shrimp (in case you don’t know, 21/25 means 21-25 pieces of shrimp per pound. It’s always best to go by the number rather than labels like “small” or “medium” because you have a better idea of how big the shrimp really are).

Add the shrimp to the pan and cook for about 5 minutes, until completely cooked through. Add the minced garlic and stir for 30 seconds, then remove the shrimp from the pan (it’s okay if there’s still brown stuff leftover on the bottom of the pan, that’s a good thing).

Cook this mixture for another 2 minutes, then toss this mixture with the cooked shrimp (including any juices), the cooked linguine noodles, and 1 cup of pasta water. Toss well and add the olive oil and herbs, if desired. Serve and enjoy!
