Sorry for the blurry pic…

Fusilli with Rock Shrimp and Arugula

3/4 lb. rock shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 tablespoons olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled and thinly sliced
1 cup white wine
1 tablespoon unsalted butter (I prefer Lurpak’s)
salt to taste
pasta
1 cup arugula, finely chopped
cracked black pepper

Saute garlic in olive oil until browned, about 2 minutes. Add butter and wine, bring to a boil and simmer or until wine has reduced, about 2-3 minutes. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally until shrimp turns pink, about 3-4 minutes. Adjust seasoning and remove from heat.

Cook pasta, drain. Add pasta to shrimp mixture. Cook on medium heat for about 3-5 minutes; add arugula and stir until wilted. Season to taste with cracked black pepper and serve immediately.

Note to readers: do you like it when I post dinner pix? This is not a food blog per se. I understand though that food porn is a major draw.

  4. Actually padrone, the original recipe uses double the amount of garlic but since I’m cooking for one, well…there you go. 😉
