  • 1 pound jumbo shrimp, peeled & deveined
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons lemon zest
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/4 cup yellow onion chopped
  • 2 tablespoons white wine
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 pound thin spaghetti
  • 4 tablespoons fresh parsley, chopped
  • 1/2 tbs red pepper flakes
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese


  • Place peeled & deveined shrimp in a medium sized bowl with 1 tbsp olive oil and lemon zest.
  • Heat olive oil in a large sauté pan over medium high heat. Add the garlic, onion, and white wine. Cook, stirring frequently, for 1-2 minutes until onions are translucent.
  • Stir in butter, chicken broth, and milk. Mix until the butter has melted. Bring to a boil, then add the spaghetti, tossing gently to coat in the broth mixture. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook for about 8 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the noodles aren't sticking, until spaghetti just starts to get soft.
  • Add the shrimp, parsley, and red pepper flakes, toss to coat, cover and cook an additional 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are fully cooked and the spaghetti is al dente.
  • Mix in the parmesan cheese and season with salt and pepper. If the mixture is too thick, add more broth until desired consistency is reached. To serve, divide between bowls and garnish with more parsley if desired.


  • You can add lemon juice in step 4 if you want to add more citrusy flavor.
