1 pound raw, easy peel shrimp
3 cloves garlic
3 tablespoons melted butter
1/4 cup olive oil
1/4 cup fresh chives, diced
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 package whole wheat linguini noodles (or other pasta or rice)
Juice from 1/2 a large lemon
Preheat oven to 450 degrees. Start to cook pasta. Rinse, peel and devein shrimp (but leave tails on if you wish).
In a blender or food processor, blend together the garlic, melted butter, and olive oil until the garlic is very finely chopped. Pour the olive oil mixture over the shrimp, sprinkle in the fresh chives, salt, and a hearty amount of fresh cracked pepper.
Place baking sheet in preheated oven and bake for 10-15 minutes, until the shrimp is cooked through (be careful to not overcook the shrimp! they shouldn't curl into little circles, but should look like quarter moon sickles once done.) Mine took about 9 or 10 minutes.
Drain pasta. Dump shrimp and remaining garlic butter sauce from the baking sheet pan over the pasta. Drizzle more olive oil over pasta if needed and add in lemon juice. Serves 2 to 3. Enjoy your simply amazing and irresistible dinner!
