How to make Spaghetti with Shrimp

Updated on March 8, 2016

Pasta with shrimp and is a classic of the Italian cuisine starring the small white shrimp, who generally sell already shelled. This first course with shrimp is usually accompanied by some cherry tomatoes, and is flavored with parsley or basil. If you want to try a flavor a bit 'stronger, try to spice it with fresh grated ginger and mint.

In the Middle Ages, the prawns were considered poor and this is why they were not much appreciated.

In Sicilian cuisine, this crustacean, is used in wide use, both for food more or less common than for most elegant, such as shrimp cocktail.

In addition, shrimp, have a low-calorie (71 calories per hundred grams), and moreover, are rich in phosphorus and potassium.

In our recipe, originally from Marsala (Sicily),the prawns are the protagonists in his unmistakable recipe that exploited them flavor to the maximum.
This simple first course has the advantage of simplicity and naturalness.


For 4 servings:

1 / 2 onion
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons capers
10 green olives
10 black olives
500 gr. peeled shrimp
400 gr. tomato sauce
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 glass of white wine
500 gr. spaghetti


Chop the onion, garlic and capers and put a brown in a frying pan with oil.

Add the olives and cut in two the crayfish (some left whole and the other pieces).

Fry for 2-3 minutes, add a glass of white wine, salt and pepper and let cook for 8-10 minutes until the wine will not be absorbed

Take a saucepan, put the tomato sauce and a pinch of salt and let cook for 10 minutes.

Combine the tomato sauce to the shrimp and let it dry for another 5 minutes.

Meanwhile cook the spaghetti al dente, drain, stir-fry all in a pan and serve immediately.

Buon Appetito

      Thank's Mr Nice.

      Your way to eat is the best way to have fun from the food.

      My idea of "eating" is that you have to have fun from the food.

      Hi Angelo,

      This recipe looks & feels mouth watering. We make this & many other Italian dishes but our recipe is a bit different. Will try this one too. Last week we cooked Ravioli. We eat international foods & therefore it's not boring.
