So the word on the street is that Maine shrimp are in season! Of course when anything is in season it's also much less expensive. When I was at whole foods the other day they had these little raw wild caught babies on sale for something like $2.50 a pound! They looked so pink and fresh I had to give them a try. With that said dinner was an easy decision, shrimp and linguine with lots of garlic and parsley. This truly is a flavorful $10 dinner that can feed 2 - 4 people!!
Start with chopped garlic and a shallot. I used 5 or 6 cloves of garlic and one shallot. I browned them lightly with olive oil and butter. I also added fresh black pepper and some crushed red pepper. Keep a close eye on the garlic. If it browns too much it will become bitter. Recipe after the jump.
