Shrimp Spaghetti

These Shrimp Spaghetti is one of our favorite choices for lunch or dinner. It is quick, bursting with flavor and extremely delicious.

What I really adore about this dish is how the veggies, garlic, spicy chili pepper, zesty lemon, and aromatic oregano all come together. Add in those succulent buttery shrimps, and when you pour it over perfectly cooked spaghetti, it’s just pure magic. Trust me, it’s a delightful combo.

I highly recommend giving it a try for yourself and sharing your thoughts with me afterward. It’s a culinary experience you won’t want to miss out on!

How to make Shrimp Spaghetti

Begin with heating oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat. Sauté onion and garlic until golden, approximately 5 minutes. Add carrot and bell pepper, cooking for an additional 5 minutes or until softened. Pour in white wine and allow it to evaporate. Stir in water, olives, and chili pepper. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until all vegetables are tender. Remove chili pepper when the sauce reaches desired spiciness. Add lemon zest, lemon juice, oregano, and salt.

Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium frying pan over medium-high heat. Add shrimp and cook for 3 to 5 minutes. When the sauce is almost done, stir in the cooked shrimp and simmer for another 2 to 3 minutes.

As the sauce simmers, cook spaghetti al dente in a large pot of salted boiling water. Drain and toss with olive oil. Serve the sauce over the pasta or combine the spaghetti with the sauce, mixing well. Enjoy a flavorful shrimp and vegetable pasta dish!
