Instructions

Cook linguine according to package directions. Drain and set aside.

Sauté Method

  1. In a large skillet, heat the butter and olive oil over medium heat. Add the garlic, red pepper flakes, tarragon and chives and cook for 1 minute.
  2. Add the shrimp and cook just until the shrimp start to turn pink.
  3. Add the white wine and 1/4 cup lemon juice and continue cooking until the shrimp are cooked through, around another minute or so. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  4. Add additional lemon juice to taste (how much you will need depends on the sweetness of your lemons).
  5. Serve over linguine, garnished with chopped Italian parsley.

Grill Method

  1. In a small saucepan, heat the butter, oil, garlic, pepper flakes, tarragon, chives and lemon juice over medium heat just until the butter is melted and ingredients are mixed together.
  2. Tear off 2 to 3 large squares of foil. Divide shrimp equally between each square, drawing up foil sides to make a bowl.
  3. Drizzle butter sauce over shrimp. Season with salt and pepper. Fold up two opposite edges of the foil and fold over to seal. Fold up ends and seal.
  4. Place on a preheated grill over medium hot coals and cook for around 10 minutes or until the shrimp are pink and cooked through.
  5. Serve over linguine, garnished with chopped Italian parsley.

Baking Method

  1. In an ovenproof baking dish, heat the butter, oil, garlic, pepper flakes, tarragon, chives and lemon juice over medium heat just until the butter is melted and ingredients are mixed together. Season with salt and pepper.
  2. Remove from heat and stir in shrimp. Cover and bake in a preheated 375 degree oven until shrimp are done, around 12 to 15 minutes.
  3. Serve over linguine, garnished with chopped Italian parsley.
