Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair Recipe {New Year’s Recipe Idea}

Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair

From spreads to au gratins, shrimp is one of the most versatile and special items to grace your holiday table.

Shrimp’s elegance is outshined only by its nutritional value, an added bonus when other holiday favorites pack on the pounds. A serving size of three ounces of shrimp delivers nearly 20 grams of protein and a healthy dose of B vitamins, iron, and omega-3s, with only 84 calories and less than one gram of fat (when cooked plain).

Check out one of my favorite Shrimp recipes below, perfect for New Year’s Eve Parties everywhere!  The Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair Recipe, simple and delicious!

Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair Recipe

Champagne Shrimp and Angel Hair Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 lb of shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 8 oz of angel hair pasta
  • 2 cups of your choice of Champagne
  • 1 cup of fresh mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 cup of heavy cream
  • 3 tablespoons of fresh parsley, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of minced shallots
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
  • ¼ teaspoon of salt

Instructions

*Cook the pasta as directed; drain afterwards and coat with a tablespoon of olive oil.

*While the pasta is cooking, heat the other tablespoon of extra virgin oil over medium-high heat in a large skillet. Cook the mushrooms in the olive oil until tender; then remove and set aside.

*Combine the shrimp, Champagne and salt in the pan, and cook over high heat. When the liquid starts to boil, remove the shrimp and add the shallots. Boil for 8 minutes; until reduced to about half a cup.

*Stir in 3/4 of the cream and boil for an additional 2 minutes.

*Add the shrimp and the mushrooms to sauce, heating through. Toss the hot, cooked pasta with the remaining 1/4 cup of cream and the freshly chopped parsley. Spoon the shrimp with sauce over the pasta and serve.

Enjoy!!

    I like how you used shrimp for this recipe because most would use ground meat but I love shrimp. I also like how you used angel hair pasta which I prefer.

  60. Bruce L. — June 4, 2018 @ 4:36 am (#)

    I wish my wife and daughter would eat shrimp! For that matter, I wish they’d eat any seafood or fish, I can’t convince them to learn to like it no matter how healthy it is.
