My wife doesn’t like this, so this recipe is one I make just for myself, so this is a single-serving recipe. The recipe card allows you to adjust the portion size. I prefer angel hair pasta with seafood. I think I first had angel hair with shrimp at Cheese Cake Factory, and it’s a combo I highly recommend, just be careful not to overcook angel hair pasta because it only needs a few minutes.
When I eat out many times, seafood is served with a cream sauce which I’m not a fan of. I love the flavor with garlic butter and wine, which is more of a scampi style. This is quick and easy to make I keep a bag of shrimp from Costco and frozen seafood from Trader Joe’s in my freezer for a quick pasta meal.
As you can see, this recipe uses only 7 ingredients plus some spices. I like to use powdered chicken stock because I only use a little chicken broth in this recipe.
This gives you a good idea of what it looks like. Not a ton of sauce, but I prefer it that way. If you want more sauce, then add additional butter, wine, and chicken stock. If I were to critique this photo, I would want the shrimp a little darker, but it did taste perfect.Print

In the photo, I added way too much pasta. I like to eat 2 servings of pasta generally as I’m a big eater. And I’ll use half a bag of seafood. So with bread and salad, technically, according to product labels, this might be 2 servings. I would be hungry. Hopefully, this gives you some context to portion size.
I also find that seafood defrosts fairly quickly I didn’t include that in the prep time. Be sure that you drain the seafood if you defrost it in water. I use a paper towel to dry seafood. You don’t want water in the pan.
