Linguine with Rock Shrimp, Anchovies and Aglio e Olio Plus Video



6 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1/4 cup minced fine fresh garlic
1 bottle of clam juice
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup white wine
2 tablespoons freshly chopped parsley
Sea or kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 pound rock shrimp cleaned, out of shell and deveined or regular fresh shrimp, peeled
Rock Shrimp is found in Florida and taste very much like little lobster tails

Rock Shrimp, one of our favorites in Florida


4 to 6 anchovies, minced (you can also use a tube of paste and add to the liquid)
1 pound pasta of choice cooked al dente
1/4 cup chopped Italian parsley
optional: grating cheese and hot red pepper flakes

Heat 3 tablespoons of oil in a large, fry pan over medium heat. Add the garlic and cook until soft, do not brown or it becomes bitter, saute around 3 minutes. Add the juice, butter, bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook simmering for 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper taste. Set aside. Put the remaining 3 tablespoons of oil, butter in the same large pan heat. Saute the shrimp, wine and anchovies. Cook just until the shrimp turn pink, about 3 minutes. Add pasta, toss to coat. If you like more buttery flavor add more melted butter to the tops of the rock shrimp, just pour directly over the tops of them.
We like to garnish with grating cheese, hot red pepper flakes and parsley.

Rock shrimp is a rare treat since I have moved from Florida, but I do remember how tasty it was. This light pasta dish does look fabulous. I never thought that shrimp should have a lot of sauce, so I am all for this recipe. Your photos are wonderful-yum!

You had to go and post this first thing in the morning. Now for the rest of the day I am going to be sitting at my desk drooling on my keyboard thinking about shrimp and linguine. Definitely a must make meal for me.

Hi Claudia,

How delicious in its simplicity. I'm going to have to make this and it's Friday too -- my mom's tradition was always fish (even shellfish) on Friday.

Thanks for sharing,
Joanne

I'm going to have to make this... soon....very soon. Shrimp and pasta need little encouragement - they are such a good match.

We had rock shrimp over Christmas at a friend's here in Colorado. I think they got it at Costco and it was a real treat. Love your serving dish, too!

German Mama said...

Wow, this looks sooo great. Don't think I will be able to find rock shrimp in the shops around here, though :-(

Aglio E Olio is one of my favorite pasta dish, I ever made exactly like this before but I use spaghetti pasta and regular shrimp
