Makes: 4 Servings   | Preparation Time: 30 minutes


  • 1 pound (450g) linguine pasta
  • 1 pound (450g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1/2 cup La Panza extra virgin olive oil
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • Zest and juice of 2 lemons
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Crushed red pepper flakes (optional, for heat)
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving


  1. Cook the Linguine:
    -Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
    -Cook the linguine according to the package instructions until al dente.
    -Reserve about 1 cup of pasta cooking water, then drain the linguine and set it aside.
  2. Prepare the Shrimp:
    -In a large skillet, heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over medium heat.
    -Add the minced garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
    -Add the shrimp to the skillet, season with salt, pepper, and crushed red pepper flakes if using.
    -Cook until the shrimp are pink and cooked through, about 2-3 minutes per side.
    -Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.
  3. Make the Lemon-Garlic Sauce:
    -In the same skillet, add the remaining olive oil and heat it over medium-low heat.
    -Add the lemon zest and juice to the skillet, stirring to combine with the olive oil.
    -Let it simmer gently for a few minutes to infuse the flavors.
  4. Combine Everything:
    -Add the cooked linguine to the skillet with the lemon-garlic sauce.
    -Toss well to coat the pasta evenly. If the pasta seems too dry, add some of the reserved pasta cooking water, a little at a time, until you reach your desired consistency.
  5. Add Shrimp and Finish:
    -Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet with the pasta and sauce.
    -Add chopped parsley and toss everything together until heated through and well combined.
  6. Serve and Garnish:
    -Transfer the Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Linguine to serving plates or a large platter.
    -Serve hot, garnished with additional chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese on the side for sprinkling over individual servings.
The vibrant blend of zesty lemon, aromatic garlic, and fresh parsley, heightened by the rich essence of La Panza extra virgin olive oil, makes this dish a flavorful and satisfying choice, particularly for seafood lovers!
