How to make Pesto Shrimp Fettuccine in Mushroom Garlic Sauce
Step 1: In a large skillet, heat 1 tbsp olive oil over medium heat.
Step 2: In a mixing bowl, add the shrimp and the seasoning mixture ingredients. Coat the shrimp well. To the hot pan, add the shrimp and sear for about 2 to 3 minutes per side, turning midway, until the shrimp are cooked through and pink. Set the shrimp aside when done.
Step 3: To the skillet, add the second tbsp of olive oil. Once hot, add the sliced mushrooms and season with 1/4 tsp salt. Cook, stirring for about a minute or two until the mushrooms have released their liquid and decreased in volume and softness.
Step 4: In the last few minutes for cooking and the mushrooms are almost ready, add the minced garlic. Saute for about a minute or two. Then, return the cooked shrimp to the skillet.
Step 5: Now, add the pesto and pour in the white wine, then deglaze the pan before pouring in the stock. Continue to cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes until the mixture has reduced.
Step 6: Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pot with boiling water. Drain when done, but do not rinse the pasta.
Step 7: To the skillet, add the pasta and toss until completely coated in the sauce. Let everything warm for about 2 minutes.
Step 8: To serve, divide the pesto shrimp fettuccine into portions. If desired, season with extra salt and more red pepper flakes. Enjoy!
