Lemon Pasta with Grilled Shrimp

Everyone has the idea that this year is going to be different they are going to work out more and eat more healthful meals. Well guess what I was thinking the same thing. My husband joined the gym and I started to work out with the Wii fit. We also started to make better choices when it came to food, after all the yummy fattening foods over the holidays it was time for a change. I was thinking that we should swap out meat and chicken for a few meals and have more fish and seafood. Oh yeah and lots of fruits and veggies. So after a week of carrots and hummus and oranges and bananas, I was looking for something heartier. I stumbled across this recipe Ina's Lemon Pasta with Roasted Shrimp   in Food Network's Magazine and of course in pure Shosh's Yummy Food fashion I changed it up a bit. So here's my take on it...

Lemon Pasta with Grilled Shrimp

Items Needed:
Pasta Pot
Wooden Skewers
Cuisnart Griddler/ or equivalent or Grill Pan 

  • Half box of Whole wheat pasta
  • 25 large frozen Shrimp thawed
  • Hot suace
  • salt
  • pepper
  • garlic powder
  • olive oil
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 c bread crumbs
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1/4 c Parmesan cheese 
  • 1 cup pasta water reserved

  • Bring pot of water to boil and cook pasta according to box directions
  • If shrimp has shells on remove them and place in bowl with 1/4 tsp each of salt, pepper, and garlic powder and about 2 tbsp of hot sauce more or less to you liking
  • Skewer shrimp and place on hot oiled grill/grill pan, and cook until pink and opaque
