BLACKENED SHRIMP PASTA

I've such a unusual relationship with shrimp. most of the time I don’t find it irresistible, then all at once, instantly, i get this in reality excessive craving for it and that i’m all like, “wth cravings? What are you doing?” nicely, that craving hit ultimate week, but with all of the darkish rainy weather we’ve had I wasn’t able to make this superb Blackened Shrimp Pasta until yesterday. however, I’m proud to announce, even every week later it definitely slayed my shrimp yearning (because I recognize you were clearly concerned approximately that, lol). 

BLACKENED SHRIMP PASTA

I’m lucky in relation to shrimp due to the fact I stay in Louisiana and we've clean shrimp simply available and at an affordable charge. if you don’t, frozen shrimp will probably be your fine choice for this recipe. Frozen shrimp thaws fast while located in a colander with cool water jogging over it. when shopping for shrimp you’ll observe some numbers at the bundle (mine said 25/35), which consult with the scale, or the number of shrimp in step with pound. The smaller the number, the bigger the shrimp. 

I used 25/35 due to the fact that’s what was available that day, however I assume i'd have desired to use 31/45 in order that I ought to get extra portions and extra shrimp according to chunk in my pasta. larger shrimp are prettier, of direction, but considering the fact that i used to be being finances aware and handiest used half of lb. shrimp, extra pieces might have dispensed the shrimp in the course of the pasta higher.
