    make sure the water is WELL salted when you cook the pasta.

    Add a small amount(2 or 3 tablespoons) of the cooking water, butter (at least 1/2 a stick) and fresh grated Reggiano Parmesan (lots) to make the sauce. Put it over the pasta and the shrimp on top of that.


    If the pan is hot when you put the shrimp in, when one side gets a good reddish color it is half done turn it over. It does not take long. The variable would be how cold the shrimp is when you start.

    When cooking for a lot of people I will put the shrimp in tap water to bring up the temp, Right before cooking. Drain well before you put them in the hot oil.
