"After throwing some ingredients together for tapas, the flavor was so fresh and light my family asked for more. By warming it through with a few more ingredients I turned it into a family meal with pasta instead of just a snack."

1 (16 ounce) package
peeled and deveined medium shrimp
liquid shrimp and crab boil seasoning
diced red onion
diced sweet red bell pepper
canned whole kernel corn, drained
1 1/2 tablespoons
fresh lime juice
chopped fresh cilantro
canned chipotle chile peppers in adobo sauce, finely chopped
The eight ingredients starting with the garlic should be mixed together and let sit overnight in the fridge to marinate, the oregano should be 1 tablespoon not one teaspoon (don't be afraid as it mixes through). The entire mixture should be heated through with the melted butter and proceed with the recipe. The garlic and red onion should not be cooked until translucent as this dulls the intensity of the garlic and red onion changing the final flavor. Also shouldn't take as much time as recipe states.
This is a good beginning. I added a large can of whole tomatoes, chopped, with the vegetables, a 1/2 half cup of virgin olive oil and double the amount of Cilantro and Spices. Instead of half and half, I used white wine.
I altered the recipe a little bit, added Rotel Tomatoes and Chilies. Put a little kick in it. I did like this recipe and I will make it again.
Changes I made: I marinated the shrimp in the juice of half a lime for a couple of hours; I cut WAY back on the amount of butter called for; I subbed regular yellow onion for the red, and I used a couple of tbsps of McCormick's Chipotle Chile Pepper powder instead of canned peppers. This turned out great. Thanks!
Another classic that I've held on to. Be careful about the butter and you may want to use less pasta but other than that mmmm!
This was delicious - I omitted the red bell pepper as I had none on hand. I would make this again, but I think the sauce was not enough for that much linguine so I'd double the sauce and leave everything else as is.
I followed some of the reviewer's suggestions. I sauteed veggies in 1 T butter, doubled onion, oregano, cilantro and chili pepper, used 1 C half & half, and added a can of tomato sauce. Came out pretty darn good!
Tasty, but I think I would have made a roux first as the sauce is a bit thin. Also, the color is beautiful, but for more variation, add green bell in with the red.
