Shrimp and Spaghetti


New member
Since we live only about 8 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico fresh Gulf shrimp are plentiful down here in Lower Alabama (note that I said plentiful and not cheep). Today we had Shrimp and Spaghetti. I cook this fairly often and it is some kind of good. :clap:

8 Ounces Uncooked Spaghetti
3 Tablespoons Butter
3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
3/4 Pound Shrimp, peeled, de-vained, and butter flied
2 Clove Garlic, roughly chopped
1/3 Cup Parmesan Cheese, fresh grated
2 Tablespoon Dill Weed
Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper to Taste

Cook the Spaghetti in salted water according to the package directions. Just before Spaghetti is done, melt the Butter in a large skillet over medium heat and add the Olive Oil. When the Oil and Butter are hot add the Shrimp and Garlic. Cook while stirring until the Shrimp are opaque and done. This will only take about 3 or 4 minutes. Drain the Spaghetti and turn into a large serving bowl. Pour in the Shrimp/Butter/Olive Oil mixture over the Spaghetti. Mix well to coat. Add the Grated Parmesan, Dill Weed, Salt and Fresh Ground Black Pepper. Mix again and serve.
This is good served with French Bread and a Caesar Salad.
Serves 4

When I lived in WV I used to do this all the time. I didn't use dill, though.

Thanks for the reminder.
