    Main Dish

  • Cusine



2 pounds medium or large shrimp, shelled and cleaned

Grated zest and juice of 2 small lemons

Grated zest and juice of 1 lime

1/4 cup olive oil


1 pound linguine or other long pasta

Black pepper to taste


Preheat oven to 500 degrees F. Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. In a small bowl, combine olive oil, zests, and juices. Season to taste with salt, then add shrimp and toss to coat. Cook pasta until al dente, reserving 1 cup of pasta cooking water before draining. In the meantime, on a large baking sheet, spread the shrimp in a single layer. Roast until just cooked though, 6-8 minutes. Remove the shrimp from the pan, reserving the juices. Return cooked pasta to its pot. Scrape the roasting juices into the pot along with a little pasta water. Over low heat, cook until the pasta water combines with the roasting juices to create a sauce. At the last moment, add the shrimp and toss to combine. Serve in deep, wide bowls with fresh black pepper.
