Recipes for A New Year

I made this recipe last week, which was delicious! I wanted to share it because it is definitely one I will make again. Here is the recipe:

Shrimp Scampi with Linguine

It was super easy and did not take very long to make. I used small frozen shrimp and fresh linguine. The fresh pasta was much better than the regular.

The only thing omitted was fresh parsley on top.

I had started this post last week and then all hell broke out in our country and…everything just kinda stopped. But I have another recipe from this week! Also shrimp. I am working through Chrissy Teigan’s book and I made this recipe:

The recipe was awesome! One critique: a tad on the salty side. But next time I will just dilute the soy sauce marinade a little bit and I think it will be ok.

I cut the recipe in half since it was just the two of us. I made rice in the instant pot and here is the sauce (made in the magic bullet):

The sauce was excellent! SPICY!!! At first I thought it might be too spicy but after that initial bite, it wasn’t too bad. We both liked the sauce a lot.

I very much recommend this recipe (and the book!). Both recipes, in fact, were awesome. If you are looking for a lower calorie but filling dinner, shrimp with pasta or rice is always a quick and easy one.
