Royal red shrimp with lemon linguine

Our Royal Red Shrimp with Lemon Linguine is truly ‘Fresh From Florida! Just the way we like it. Every Thursday afternoon from 3 – 6 pm, we take a bunch of products to Brevard County Farmer’s Market held in beautiful Wickham Park. There we join other vendors, some of whom have traveled miles. Barbara of Barbara’s Swiss Treats, supplying cheese from Europe; Dennis, who is infamous for his raw honey; The Farm at Rockledge Garden’s, sharing a collection of produce locally and loving grown using organic methods; Suzanne from The Funky Chicken Farm, bringing eggs, homemade sauerkraut and a wealth of farming expertise and Wild Ocean Market bringing you seasonal and local catches.

Farmer’s Markets are a great opportunity to catch up with everyone, vendors and shoppers alike. It’s also the perfect place for picking up what is locally grown and in the case of Wild Ocean Market, caught. One particular week, we collected a bag of Royal Red Shrimp and couldn’t wait to get home to prepare them for dinner.

In our kitchen, we like to keep things really simple and decided that a bunch of Royal Red Shrimp would be happiest among some Pasta Nostra fresh lemon linguine!

Royal Red Shrimp with Lemon Linguine – serves 2

  • 1 pack Pasta Nostra fresh lemon linguine
  • 2 tablespoons iCare olives with chili and fennel (available from Pasta Nostra USA)
  • Wild Oceans Royal Red Shrimp (as many as you like), peeled and cleaned
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter

  1. In a frying pan over a medium heat, add the butter, olives and the shrimp. Simmer for about 3 minutes. Which is the same time it will take the pasta to cook.
  2. When the pasta is ready, lift it out of the pan with a pasta fork (still dripping) and add it to the shrimp. At the same time, add the olive oil.
  3. Mix everything carefully for and serve immediately drizzled with more olive oil and a little grated Parmesan cheese – which is optional.

About thebigdreamfactory

My name is Susie Evans-Ardovini and I created The Big Dream Factory. I was born in the UK and have been a chef and restauranteur for over 30 years. During this time I have also lived in France and Italy where I visited many beautiful places and met many wonderful people. I am particularly impressed with the Italian way of life and their approach to food. Many families work extremely hard to grow and produce their own salumi, cheese, wine and olive oil which means that they have a wealth of knowledge and experience, most of which has been handed down through countless generations. It is no different in the kitchen. Nearly all foods served at an Italian table have been gathered from someones garden or field, and is then served alongside homemade, pasta, gnocchi, and countless dishes that could not be recounted in this tiny space since each family's knowledge is unique ... well, you can only imagine. I have walked Rome, climbed to the top of the Vatican, seen Milan, Venice, the Cinque Terre, climbed mountains, walked The Path of the Gods, wandered the great city of Napoli, lived on the little Island of Ponza and gathered a pile of friends, family and photographs as well as invalueable experience along the way. I became a new immigrant to the U.S.A on December 15th, 2013. With the support of many great friends and a passion (bordering on obsession), I am here in search of the American Dream and to bring you the natural flavours and vibrant colours of Italy. All my pasta, gnocchi and biscotti are made by hand just as I saw Italians do in homes and good restaurants all over Italy, every day and sometimes, twice a day. I hope you enjoy my creations and invite you to share your comments, photographs and recipes with me on Facebook or Twitter. In return I of course, will share beautiful Italy with you.
