Shrimp Pasta Recipe
I have different shrimp pasta recipes but this recipe is my absolute favorite because it’s made with a beer sauce!
If you don’t like beer, you can use dry white wine. If you can’t have alcohol in your food, you may use chicken broth for this recipe.

I love shrimp. It’s a healthy seafood and lends the most amazing flavors to a simple pasta dish.
Shrimp is not too expensive and you can get frozen shrimp in a bag for as low as $6.99 at Target. For pasta, I love using spaghetti.
You can also use angel hair pasta, linguine or fettuccine. Other than that, penne and fussili are great, too.

I had fennel, and from the garden -parsley, sage, jalapeño, yellow cherry tomatoes, shrimp in the freezer, a pack of Gluten-free egg fettuccini, one g-f beer, (and white wine I didn’t want to open for a recipe). I threw all my ingredients into a search engine, modified to add my extra ingredients, and voila. Delicious.
Hi, Iam wondering if anyone have try this with something else instead of Shrimps?
Hi Ameena, you can try it with chicken or other protein.
This was delicious. I added more cherry tomatoes, a bit more garlic, a pinch of red pepper flakes and dry white wine. I sprinkled Cajun seasoning on shrimp.
I added some broccoli in the end. Will definitely make again. Thank you for a great recipe.

I’ve been looking for a good simple pasta recipe to make with shrimp and I final found this one. This recipe is excellent and was enjoyed by the whole family. This will be added to the repertoire and used often. Instant family favorite.
Amazing version of this recipe. Being doing something similar for a while with olive oil and it was ok. But doing this with butter, watching the melted butter brown with all the little garlic bits after cooking the shrimp was magical. Even my son, who doesnt like shrimp, ate this up.

I love all your recipes. I miss Malaysian food and your site brings me back to my childhood flavors , aromas and tastes. Thank you!

You can skip!
Your recipe has been very inspiring.
I live in New Zealand and can not buy Malaysian Har Kow (The one that is use in assam laksa)
Do you have the recipe for it.
If yes, Please e-mail to me.
Hi Tony, I am sorry but I don’t know how to make har kow. I think it’s probably prawn shell water, boil and add sugar and becomes caramel.
