Shrimp and chorizo Pasta

Made by Helen

Here’s another Italian recipe with a twist of Asian and Spanish touch. This whole week I have been having curb of pasta, chorizo and chilli.

So, I decided to add them all together in to make a one pot cooking with all the ingredients that I have been yearning to eat them.

This time I choose linguine, similar to spaghetti but a bit more like noodles texture. I didn’t have any tomato raguout in it nor creamy thick carbonara sauce.

I only use white wine, butter, XO chilli oil, Worcester sauce and water from linguine. The sauce is flavoured with shrimps and chorizo. Its not a soupy sauce, but there are enough sauce for taste.

This is simple, easy yet delicious enough to share with 3 other member of my family.

Let get cooking!!!!

36 shrimps, peeled, cleaned & deveined
250 g Linguine (or your favorite pasta), reserve water from cooking linguine about 1/2 c
1/2 c white white (Sauvignon)
4 chorizo Sausages, sliced
1 of each red, yellow and green capsicums, cut into bite size
30 g unsalted Butter
4 garlic, diced
1 Tbs XO chilli oil (given by friend), extra garnish
2 Tsp Worcestershire sauce
olive Oil
20 g butter, to thicken the wine and OX chilli oil
2-4 spring onions, chopped, garnish

Cook pasta to package directions. Rinse & toss with olive oil. Set aside until needed.

Heat oil and butter in large saucepan. Once oil and butter is warming hot, add chorizo in to brown, sweat a bit. Next remove chorizo from pan.

Using the same saucepan with oil and butter flavour with chorizo, add shrimps, and garlic. Saute over medium high heat until prawns are cook and garlic softened, slightly browned & fragrant about 4 minutes.

Toss capsicums in and cook another 4 minutes. Then add back chorizo. Stir in XO chilli oil, water, wine and butter. Season with salt and pepper. Add pasta into pan. Toss well.

Spoon equal amount shrimps and chorizo linguine on to serving bowl. Garnish with extra XO chilli and spring onions.
Serve with a glass of white sweet wine.

Note: You may add your own sauce. Omit chilli oil and use chives instead of spring onions. You may use any pasta of your choice. You may use your own chosen white wine.
